Yajur-Veda

 

Yajur Veda is another branch of Vedas, which is about the knowledge of sacrificial rituals. As the Sanskrit word Yajur means ideal way to invoke blessings of gods. Yajur Veda is of two types,one Krishna Yajur Veda or the Black Yajur Veda and the Shukla Yajur Veda or the White Yajur Veda.

 

Under Krishna Yajur Veda, there are three branches but now only one is available.

Saam-Veda

 

The third significant part that Vedas contains is the Sama Veda, pronounced as Saam Ved. The Sanskrit word Sama in English would mean hymn and Veda is Collection of wisdom. So together it means collection of knowledge about hymns. Sama Veda deals in the study of music and chanting to please the divine.

 

Initially, there were in all 1000 Shakhas (Branches) in Sama Veda

Atharva-Veda
