Vedanta has been interpreted as the "last chapters, parts of the Veda " and alternatively as "object, the highest purpose of the Veda". More than Upanishads are known, of which the first dozen or so are the oldest and most important and are referred to as the principal or main mukhya Upanishads.

Hence he has written quite an extensive commentary on this. As he wrote on the entire Upanishat part of the Aranyaka, this Upanishat is also called Mahaitareyopanishat. This Upanishat, which stresses the view that all names are the names of God, has not been explained by any other commentator so lucidly as by Madhvacharya. All the other Commentators have given the dictionary meanings of the Mantras.
The Vedas are a collection of hymns and other ancient religious texts written in India between about and BCE. It includes elements such as liturgical material as well as mythological accounts, poems, prayers, and formulas considered to be sacred by the Vedic religion. The origin of the Vedas can be traced back as far as BCE, when a large group of nomads called the Aryans, coming from central Asia, crossed the Hindu Kush Mountains, migrating into the Indian subcontinent. This was a large migration and used to be seen as an invasion. This invasion hypothesis, however, is not unanimously accepted by scholars today.
