Faith(s) Hinduism

The Aranyakas ("Forest Books") contain similar material as the Brahmanas and discuss rites deemed not suitable for the village (thus the name "forest").

They also prominently feature the word brahmana, here meaning the creative power behind of the rituals, and by extension, the cosmic order.
