Manuscript is used for contemplation, study, and recitation, and is a collection of six early upaniṣads that were originally part of a larger collection of ten upaniṣads; these are all a kind of late Vedic, philosophical treatise employed to help reinforce and instill ideas and concepts about the makeup of the universe. Such ideas and teachings typically went beyond tradition Vedic training that focused on the performance of and/or strict adherence to rituals alone; however, the texts themselves often comment on and/or espouse different kinds of ritual practices themselves. Manuscript is incomplete.
