Krishna Yajur Veda

The Krishna Yajurveda is characterised by mixture of mantra and brahmana related with the Brahma-school. According to a story in the beginning of his commentary on the Shukla-Yajurveda Samhita, a story is given by Mahidhara, about the two-fold division of the Yajurveda. Rishi Vaishampayana taught the Yajurveda to Rishi Yajyavalkya and other pupils. Once Vaishampayana got angry with Yajyavalkya and asked him to give back what he had learnt. Yajyavalkya vomited the Veda by the power of Yoga, while the other pupils at the command of his teacher swallowed up the Yajush thus vomited, assuming the form of birds called Tittiri. Thus, the Yajush became dark and was named Kishna or Taittiriya. Krishna Yajurveda has four Sanhitas available today: 1. Taittiriya Samhita 2. Kathaka Samhita 3. Kapishthala Samhita 4. Maitrayani Samhita
