The Taittiriya Upanishad is one of the older, "primary" Upanishads. It is divided into three sections or vallis:
- the Siksha Valli,
- the Brahmananda Valli and
- the Bhrigu Valli.
Each Valli further subdivided into anuvakas or verses.
The Siksha Valli deals with the discipline of Shiksha (the study of phonetics and pronunciation).
Vedanta (वेदान्त, vedānta) refers to a school of orthodox Hindu philosophy (astika), drawing its subject-matter from the Upanishads. There are a number of sub-schools of Vedanta, however all of them expound on the basic teaching of the ultimate reality (brahman) and liberation (moksha) of the individual soul (atman).

Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
