1) Upakramopasaṃhāra (उपक्रमोपसंहार) refers to one of the various tools used by authors displaying their skill in the art of writing.—The opening (upakrama) and concluding (upasaṃhāra) passage of a particular text introduce and summarise the subject matter—they provide the context in which the rest of the text is to be understood. They must be in context and in harmony with each other and thus determine the purport of the body of the text. It is a fallacy to begin with an assertion and then complete the argument with a different conclusion.
