This Upanishad belongs to the Vajasaneyi School of the Yajur Veda – White Yajur Veda. The Vajasaneya Samhita consists of fortychapters and Isa Upanishad is the last of it. Unlike the otherUpanishads, it is directly included in the Samhita itself as its finalchapter, rather than as a separate section. White Yajurveda hastwo branches:
vajasaneyi madhyandina
(VSM),
vajasaneyi kanva
 (VSK) and the Isa Upanishad appear in both with some variation.The earlier 39 chapters refer to liturgies and procedures associatedwith rituals in detail. These are the contents of the forty chapters:1-2: New and Full Moon sacrifices3: Agnihotra (Fire Sacrifice)4-8: Somayajna (Drink Sacrifice)9-10: Vajapeya and Rajasuya, two modifications of the Somasacrifice11-18: Details regarding construction of altars and hearths,especially the Agnicayana19.-21.: Sautramani, a ritual originally counteracting the effects ofexcessive Soma-drinking
