What happened during the pre-classical yoga period?

Pre-classical Yoga

Between 1800 and 1500 B.C., approximately 200 Gnostic texts called the Upanishads came to being. They explained the concept of the transcendental self and its relation to the ultimate reality. The Karma doctrine is believed to have originated with the Upanishads as well. From this point, other related belief systems branched including Jainism and Buddhism. All practice the idea of transcendence and interconnectedness of all beings.
