ANSWER: Upanishads
Asceticism in fact, has its origin in the Vedic thought and has been directly encouraged by the Upanishads. The Aranyakas are the products of hermitages of the forests while the Upanishads recommend retirement to forests as essential to those who seek the highest knowledge. Both derived their basic principles from the Upanishads.
