The Brahmanas explain the hymns of the Vedas. They act as the appendices to the Vedas. They are written in prose and they elaborately describe the various sacrifices and rituals, along with their mystic meanings.Each Veda has several Brahmanas. While the Upanishads criticizes the rituals and lay stresses on the value of right belief and knowledge. The language of Upanishads was classical Sanskrit not the vedic Sanskrit. It states that goal of the life is to attain salvation which is possible through self control. The philosophical principles of Sankara, Ramanuja, Ramakrishna Paramahans, Aurobindo and others are derived from Upanishads.
