What is Shukla Yajur Veda Shukla Yajur Upakarma Mantras


Why this difference?

Sage Yajnyavalkya was studying under a Guru ,Vaisampayana.

The Gurus, including Vaisampayana used meet regularly.

On one such occasion, Vaisampayan was indisposed and could not attend the meet.

Therefore, he nominated one of his Sishyas,(pupil )to attend the meeting.

Miffed at not being chosen to represent the Guru at the meet, Yajnyavalkya remonstrated with the Guru, Vaisampayana, questioning the Guru and accused him of favoritism.

In Vedic tradition no one disputes the Guru.

Vaisampayana ,therefore asked Yajnavalkya to return the Vedas taught by him, as Yajnyavalkya committed the cardinal sin of questioning the Guru and asked him to leave.

Yajnavalkya vomited what he had learnt.

The Saṃskṛt name for partridge is “Tittiri”. As the Tittiri (partridge) birds ate this Veda, it is thenceforth called the Taittirīya Yajurveda. It is also known as Kṛṣṇa Yajurveda or Black-Yajurveda on account of it being a vomited substance. The Taittirīya Saṃhitā thus belongs to this Yajurveda.

Sage Yajnavalkya performed penance to the Sun God, Adhiya, Surya’ seeking the Vedas.

Surya,assuming the form of a Horse, taught him the Vedas direct .

This is Shukla Yajur Veda,

This is the version in the Sri Vishnu Purana.

The version by Shukla Yajur Vedins is as under.
