 Ethics of the Upanishads by Sanderson Beck
The Aranyakas and the Upanishads were tacked on to the end of Brahmanas, and the only three Aranyakas extant share the names of the Brahmanas they followed and the Upanishads they preceded: Aitareya, Kausitaki, and the Taittiriya; the first two are associated with the Rig Veda, the last with the Yajur Veda.
The Aranyakas are called the forest texts, because ascetics retreated into the forest to study the spiritual doctrines with their students, leading to less emphasis on the sacrificial rites that were still performed in the towns.
The Taittiriya Aranyaka tells how when the Vataramsa sages were first approached by other sages they retreated, but when the sages came back with faith and tapas (ardor), they instructed them how to expiate the sin of abortion.
