Manuscript is used for contemplation and study and is a Hindu philosophical treatise and commentary (bhāṣya) written from the perspective of Advaita Vedānta on the Kenopaniṣad. This late Vedic work is dedicated to asking questions about the nature of the universe, human perception of it, and the highest realities therein (ātman, brahman, and others), between students and their teacher. In the process the work addresses and offers an interpretation of early social and ritual action.
