Summary

Manuscript is used for contemplation and study and is a kind of early Hindu philosophical treatise that examines the nature of existence through aphorisms, the Great sayings (mahāvakyas), by means of the use of mantras. This collection is likely a medieval work, edited by followers of Advaita Vedānta, for the purpose of providing an overview or essence of that school of philosophy.
