Summary

Small manuscript to be used in private or public meditation or prayer is a hymn in praise of the highest philosophical principal, known as the Brahman, which is also referred to as saccitānanda ("existence, consciousness, and bliss") in the text. Attaining knowledge of this principal (brahmajñāna) is said to lead to release (mokṣa) from the cycle of life and death.
