Abstract: The Vedic literature and the later Småti texts have given elaborate description of the duties to be performed by all the people born in this world. The Småti texts enjoin duties for people belonging to different castes and exhort them to perform those acts assiduously to obtain merit and to escape from the sufferings.Yoga on the other hand treats everyone equal and does not differentiate anyone with regard to caste, colour, creed, sex, nationality or religion. It has universal appeal and hence is popular across the globe unlike some other systems of practice confined only to a particular geographical area or period of time. But it is also curious to know that Yoga Yäjïavalkya, an ancient, popular and authentic yogic text gives importance to Varëäçramadharma as enjoined in the småtis. This paper deals on this subject.
