Śatapatha Brāhmaṇa. The ‘Brāhmaṇa of a Hundred Paths’, is the longest and fullest brāhmaṇa. It is attached to the White Yajur Veda, and its āraṇyaka is the Bṛhadāranyaka Upaniṣad. It describes the five great sacrificial ceremonies, vājapeya, rājasūya, aśvamedha, puruṣamedha, and sarvamedha, and it reveals much of the political and religious condition of late Vedic times.
