Advanced yoga moves on The fact that this process can be traced as far back as the Katha Upanisad bears testimony to the claims found in the epic that Samkhya was the oldest of all the philosophical systems. Moreover, this interpretation is supported by the very significant fact that the root text of the Samkhya darsana, the Samkhya Karika, presents us with what is clearly a renouncer version of the teaching rather than a brahmanical one. The Samkhya Karika of Isvarakrsna has been accepted as the normative statement of the school since the time of its composition (5th century ce), though it is likely that earlier systematic formulations of Samkhya did exist but are now lost. One reason for thinking along these lines is that there are a number of outline versions of Samkhya teaching in the Mahabharata (see Chapter 4 above). Another is that whilst the other five orthodox (astika) darsanas have sutra collections as their root texts the Samkhya possesses karikas or aphoristic verses, which are less concise than sutras. There may, then, have been a sutra collection upon which the Karika is based. The text that currently goes under the name of the Samkhya Sutras is not, however, that early collection.
