Vedopaniṣad (वेदोपनिषद्) refers to the “Vedas and Upaniṣads”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.23 (“Attempt of Himavat to dissuade Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, after Viṣṇu spoke to the Gods and others: “[...] O sage, you came back again and beckoning to the gods, with effort you took them, Viṣṇu and others, to Him. Then Viṣṇu and other gods went there and saw lord Śiva, favourably disposed to His devotees, delighted and comfortably seated. Then Viṣṇu, the gods, the Siddhas, the sages and I bowed to and eulogised Śiva seated in the Yogic posture, surrounded by the Gaṇas. He was seated in the form of penance. We eulogised Him with hymns from the Vedas and Upaniṣads [i.e., vedopaniṣad]”.
