Sambandhavārttika (‘brief commentary on the relation’)

Sureśvara (A. D. 800) was one of the four chief disciples of Śaṅkara (A. D. 788-820). He has written two vārttikas or sub-commentaries on the bhāṣyas of Śaṅkara on the Brhadāranyaka Upanisad and the Taittirlya Upanisad.

The first one is one of the longest works (spread over 11,151 verses) in Indian philosophy. The introductory part of it consisting of 1135 verses is known as Sambandhavārttika. It tries to establish the sambandha or relation between the Karmakānda portion and the Jñānakānda portion of the Veda (which deal with rituals and knowledge respectively).

The work is highly polemical.
