The Udgitha Brahmana forms a natural sequel to the Asva and Asvamedha Brahmana and marks a distict effort of the seer of the Brhadaranyaka Upanisad towards explaining the nature of Reality which underlies, or permeates through, all ritual activity. The Udgitha Upasana, looking apparently as some activity, leads the upasaka 'worshipper' to unity or oneness with the Udgitha which is nothing else then the Brahman.
