Preface and Acknowledgements
I am happy to present here the text and translation of Yajur Veda, Taittiriya Samhita, Knda one. The other 6 Knda-s are available in the other volumes, two, three and four.
My aim is to bring out the spiritual and psychological wisdom contained in the 1346 mantra-s of this Kanda. The main source for my work is the essays of Sri Aurobindo on the inner yajna in the Veda and his translations of the Rig Veda mantra-s. The luminous essays of T.V. Kapali Sstry have been very useful.
This book has also some prose passages known as Brahmapa-s, dealing with ritualistic explanations of mantras, legends and other topics. In translating these prose passages, I have utilized the English translation of A.B. Keith and the Sanskrit commentaries of Sdyaia and Bhatta Bhskara.
