Greek: knowledge) is the teaching that through insight the adept can gain metaphysical benefits like one-ness with god, salvation or liberation. So it was a yoga of gnosis (insight) because it linked gnosis with yoga. It made gnosis the centre piece of yoga and liberation. It asserted that through yoga efforts, the build up of all illuminating existential jnana would lead to final moksha (release). It was a yoga discourse which seemed naturally to fit into the intellectual world of Vedanta Brahmanism and its wisdom discourses.
A heterodox Moksopaya becomes the Yoga-Vasistha (YV)
The post-Axial Age Yoga-Vasistha (YV) is volume-wise in the same range as the great epics of India. Like the Mahabharata it is also a real epic with endless stories often contained within each other. But unlike the other epics, this is not a work promoting theism and divine salvation. The YV is rather a philosophical oeuvre deliberately using poetic narratives to communicate its optimistic message of liberation through a person’s own efforts. It has the strong conviction that liberation does not require the grace of god like in the Gita, but is solely based on determined efforts built up through re-birth after re-birth. So with the YV we return to the period of the early Upanishads, the Sramanas and early Buddhism – all engaged in liberation philosophies and self-efforts.
