The Prayogaklpti, as its nomenclature indicates, is a Shrauta-Prayoga-text, dealing with the sequence and procedures of the Shrauta-sacrifices, viz. Agnyadheya, Darshapurnamasyeshti, Chaturmasya, Pashubandha, Jyotishtoma and Agnishtoma in six Prapathakas respectively, as prevalent in the Vadhula tradition. The author of the text is Acarya Shivashrona, a versatile exponent of the Shrauta tradition. At places he explains many technical ritualistic terms in accordance with their usage in the Vadhula tradition. He gives very much stress on the performance of the rituals with accuracy in accordance with the Vadhula tradition, after having consultation with experts in this matter. He often quotes the views of other Acharyas not by names but using the phrases like iti kecit, ityanye, ityeke, and so on.
