The clash between wisdom and asceticism
As the embryonic cultural field of liberation increasingly became submerged in and orientated by Axial Age wisdom discourses (some of the discourses coming from the mainstream political and economic elites of society) the ascetic practices were often substantially muted and re-configured in this fusion. As a result of this tension-laden fusion between asceticism and wisdom discourses within the field of liberation, we see the branching out of a range of new discourses and groups driven by the dialectic tensions in the fusion. This happened at the time of Buddha, where wisdom discourses got the upper hand.
Among certain milieus of the urban elites and the Kshatriyas there seem, to be some elements of the Sramana discourses – especially Buddhism and Jainism – which they could not accept and tolerate. It might have been the Sramana’s organisational forms and it might have been their ethical system of non-violence, which caused this. Under all circumstances this upper class urban milieu developed their own discourses in parallel. In this stratum of yoga sympathisers there would have surfaced professional teachers. These Kshatriya and urban elites integrated their existing wisdom discourses with the Sramanas’ ascetic meditative techniques and liberation discourses. To signal the difference from Buddhism and Jainism, they gave the new discourses their own names like for instance yoga’. Thus the first yoga subculture – social strata naming their practices yoga’ – was probably not a part of the professional cultural field of liberation. Instead they consisted mainly of yoga sympathisers -amateurs204 (French; lover of) among the upper classes fascinated by the use- and symbolic-value of yoga.
