The Śrauta Sūtras form a very important unit of the Sūtras literature which lays down in brief the quintessence of the Vedic texts, i.e. the Saṁhitās and the Brāhmaṇas strengthening further the sacrificial tradition in India.

The Lāṭyāyana-Śrauta-Sūtra is dealing with the duties of the chanting priests, viz. the Udgātṛ, Prastotṛ, Pratihartṛ and Subrahmaṇya in the Śrauta ritual with special reference to the Soma sacrifice, belonging to the Kauthuma recension, of the Sāmaveda. Along with the duties of the chanters (Udgātṛ) in ekāha (one day), ahzna (multiday) and sattra (session), Soma sacrifices concerns with the role of the brāhmaṇa priest in Soma and various other sacrifices.

The edition includes excerpts from the commentary of Agnisvāmin, parallel passages from the Drahyāyaṇa-Śrauta-Sūtra and Dhanvin's commentary there upon.
