Summary

Manuscript is used for contemplation, study, and recitation, and is a late Vedic work that addresses early philosophical concepts of the Self (ātman) and poses a series of questions (praśna) and answers between students and their teacher. In the process the work addresses and offers an interpretation of early social and ritual action. A commentary titled Praśnopaniṣadvyākhyā, possibly by Damodāra, runs parallel above and below the root text.
