So it seems that yoga is incorporated in a Brahmin discourse of pollution: the young ascetic Brahmin is said to improve his purity (social status) by employing the technology of yoga. The sutra accordingly states that if the Brahmacarin practises yoga, Arya-like conduct, self control, benevolence then he will attain the All. Besides the meaning of to attain the All’ is unclear we see yoga framed by ethical living. This is new. As we recall ethical living was a central part of the Buddhist and Jain path to liberation but did not play much of a role in the yoga discussions of the Upanishads. We note that in this pure Brahmin genre (Brahmins writing for Brahmins about Brahmins), where we can assume that the discourses of the Kshatriyas played no or little role, yoga is informed by ethics. But it is not the universal ethic of the Sramanas.
