The focus of this book is on the Light that Yajur Veda gives us to enrich the human potential and enhance the quality of life.
According to Sri Aurobindo the mantras of the Rig Veda, the riks, light up the mind with the rays of knowledge; the mantras of Yajur Veda provide the power for the right ordaining of action, or the Yajus mantras guide the actions performed as yajna in accordance with the knowledge of riks. Sri Aurobindo states: "this sacrifice (yajna) is at once works, adoration and knowledge''.
This book is a study of two recensions (shakha) of Yajur Veda, Taittiriya Samhita from the Krishna Yajur Veda and Vajasaneyi Samhita from the Shukla Yajur Veda.
