Further the seven stages seem disconnected from the main corpus of the YV. If the audience at the time of the YV instead turned its attention to the many stories of the YV, it would find between the lines a different type of liberation. Here woven into many stories, liberation was visualised as an act of grasping the propositions of philosophical idealism. By listening to stories expressing Vedantic and Saivite idealism, the audience was supposed to finally grasp philosophical idealism, and in that moment, they would become liberated.
A process of linking yoga to Vedanta philosophy
In many ways, Vasistha’s yoga seems in its first three stages to derive from Buddhist wisdom liberation. These three stages would have sufficed for Buddhist release. The three stages are easy to comprehend as they describe a typical Buddhist epistemological change of liberation. In order to induce this three-limbed jnana-yoga with Brahmin significance, it was deemed necessary by the editors to bolt on four stages of Brahmin Vedanta philosophy.
Another possibility is that Buddhist writers initially tried to include Brahmin Vedanta philosophy in their teaching. These efforts inspired Brahmin readers to take over. They then cleaned up the Moksopaya for Buddhist heterodoxy and slowly turned the text in to the YV. Under all circumstances, this merger of discourses created all the confusion discussed.
