Kalpa Sutras are also found in other Indian traditions, such as Jainism. Kalpa is a Sanskrit word that means "proper, fit, competent, sacred precept", and also refers to one of the six Vedanga fields of study. The word is widely used in other contexts, such as "cosmic time" one day for Brahma, 4. The Kalpa field of study traces it roots to the Brahmana layer of texts in the Vedas, [10] however its texts are more focussed, clear, short and practical for ceremonies.

This field of study emerged to serve the needs of priests as they officiated over domestic ceremonies such as weddings and baby naming rites of passage, so that the rituals were efficient, standardized and appeared consistent across different events. The first versions of the Kalpa Sutras text were probably composed by the 6th-century BCE, and they were attributed to famous Vedic sages out of respect for them in the Hindu traditions or to gain authority.

Scholars such as Monier-Williams classified only Shrautasutras as part of Kalpa Vedanga, stating that the Smartasutras did not relate to Srauta or Vedic ceremonies, but instead focused on domestic events such as rites of passage when a baby is born and to Samayachara or "conventional everyday practices" that are part of every human being's life.

They are named after Vedic shakhas. Vedic sacrifice rituals at a wedding West of the sacred fire, a stone for grinding corn and condiments is placed and northeast a water jar.

The bridegroom offers an oblation, standing, looking towards the west, and taking hold of the bride's hands while she sits and looks towards the east. If he wishes only for sons, he clasps her thumbs and says, "I clasp thy hands for the sake of good fortune"; the fingers alone, if he wishes only for daughters; the hairy side of the hand along with the thumbs if wishes for both sons and daughters.

Then, whilst he leads her towards the right three times around the fire, and round the water jar, he says in a low tone, "I am he, thou are she; thou art she, I am he, I am the heaven, thou art the earth; I am the Saman , thou art the Rig. Come let us marry, let us possess offspring, united in affection, well disposed to each other, let us live for a hundred years". They include the four surviving written works of the ancient Indian tradition on the subject of dharma, or the rules of behavior recognized by a community.
