It refers to many mantras of Rig Veda, but in addition gives a description of procedures in prose form. Yajur Veda has 2 main branches called Shukla Yajur Veda and Krishna Yajur Veda. This page describes the Shukla Yajur Veda .Shukla Yajur Veda is also called as “Vaajasaneyi Samhita” and it was brought to this world by Sage Yaajnavalkya after learning form Sun God.
