Manuscript is used for contemplation and study and is a Hindu philosophical treatise and commentary reflecting on the nature of devotion (bhakti) and the different ways that one can be attached, such as blindly attached to family or consciously attached to the divine. The text suggests the means to become attached to the world while yet having attachment and devotion to God. The work is a commentary on the Bhaktisūtra by Śāṇḍilya and is considered a kind of devotional of faith-centered Mimāṃsa (Bhaktimimāṃsa), a development out of earlier schools of Mimāṃsa that focused on rites or knowledge (for example, Uttara Mimāṃsa, also known as Vedānta).
