Hatha yoga positions on They are Pancasikha, Bhdsma, Vyasa, Yajnavalkya, Vasistha, Asita Devala, Sulabha and Vaisampayana. None of these teachers offers exactly the same version of Samkhya teaching as the others and all differ in one way or another from that presented in the Samkhya Karika. Nevertheless, features which differentiate the classical Samkhya of the Karika from the teaching of the Upanisads: the plurality and separateness of the purusas and the lack of a god figure, are in evidence in some epic versions of Samkhya, a fact which indicates that the system of Isvarakrsna is not some deviation from a genuine theistic and possibly monistic Samkhya which developed out of the teaching of the Upanisads but one which stands in an ancient and well-established tradition of thought. Most epic descriptions of Samkhya are not provided by actual Samkhya teachers but are reports of what Samkhyans believe. In fact, Yajnavalkya distinguishes between those Samkhyans, whom he calls yatis, who regard purusa as existing by himself without a second, immutable, unmanifest (in the form of cause), unstable, and manifest (in the form of effects), i.e. an Upanisadic form of Samkhya, and those who depend on knowledge only (for their emancipation) and the practice of compassion for all creatures [and who] say that it is prakriti which is one but purushas are many.
