Summary

Manuscript is used for contemplation, study, and recitation and is comprised of two upaniṣads, possibly derived from the corpus of works related to and drawing verses from, the Atharvaveda. The first is a collection of verses designed to promote, praise, and appreciate the universal complexity of the Hindu deity Śiva, while the second is a critique of Vedic sacrifice, found in the earliest Vedas, in verse. Both works function as do many upaniṣads, as quasi-philosophical works that are later absorbed into and commented upon by medieval analytical philosophers.
