Story of the origin of Krishna Yajurveda or Taittiriya Samhita

Yajurveda is one among the four Vedas and is the only Veda with two different versions – Krishna (black) Yajurveda and Shukla (white) Yajurveda. The traditional story associated with the origin of the both the versions are associated with Sage Yajnavalkya.

Sage Yajnavalkya was the disciple of Sage Vaishampayana. The Sage once committed a sin and he wanted to perform a yajna to purify himself.

Temptation is the touchstone of the soul – Dada J P Vaswani

In truth it is pleasure that enjoy us. For, while pleasure always remains young and vital, it is we who keep growing old and get consumed in the fire of pleasure.
No man has been matriculated to the art of life till he has been well tempted and overcome every temptation.
Even as dumbbells strengthen our physical muscles, even so temptations strengthen the muscles of the soul. They develop our hidden spiritual strength. Temptations unlock the hidden powers of the Spirit.
A person becomes holy, in the measure in which he overcomes temptations.
Temptation is the touchstone of the soul. Even as gold is tested on the touchstone of the soul. Even as gold is tested on the touchstone, even so man’s character, the loftiness of his soul is tested by the temptations he is able to overcome.
Dada J P Vaswani
