यजुर्वेद

See also:  यजुः
A Sanskrit English Dictionary | sa  en |   | 
यजुर्—वेद  m. m. ‘the sacrificial वेद’, the collective body of sacred मन्त्रs or texts which constitute the यजुर्-वेद (these मन्त्रs, though often consisting of the prose यजुस्, are frequently identical with the मन्त्रs of the ऋग्-वेद, the यजुर्-वेद being only a sort of sacrificial prayer-book for the अध्वर्यु priests formed out of the ऋग्-वेद, which had to be dissected and rearranged with additional texts for sacrificial purposes; the most characteristic feature of the यजुर्-वेद is its division into two distinct collections of texts, the तैत्तिरीय-संहिता and the वाजसनेयि-संहिताq.v.; the former of which is also called कृष्णi.e. ‘Black’, because in it the संहिता and ब्राह्मण portions are confused; and the latter शुक्लi.e. ‘White’, because in this, which is thought the more recent of the two recensions, the संहिता is cleared from confusion with its ब्राह्मण and is as it were white or orderly; the order of sacrifices, however, of both recensions is similar, two of the principal being the दर्श-पूर्ण-मास or sacrifice to be performed at new and full moon, and the अश्व-मेध or horse-sacrifice; cf.[IW. 6; 245 n. 2]), [Br.]; [GṛŚrS.]; [Mn. &c.]

YAJURVEDA   
1) General.
The Caturvedas are:--Ṛgveda, Yajurveda Sāmaveda and Atharvaveda. Viṣṇu Purāṇa, Part 3, Chapter 5, mentions that Vaiśampāyana, the disciple of Vedavyāsa, divided Yajurveda into twentyseven branches and taught them to his disciples. Among those disciples there was Yājñavalkya, the son of Brahmarāta. It was Vyāsa who divided the Vedas into four parts. After dīviding them, the sage Vyāsa taught Ṛgveda to Paila, Yajurveda to Vaiśampāyana, Sāmaveda to Jaimini and Atharvaveda to Sumantu. The rules for Japa, Homa etc. of Yajurveda were taught to Vyāsa by Agnideva. If all the rules of Yajurveda are correctly observed, all desires will be fulfilled. There are special rules for the observance of homa for the fulfilment of particular desires.
