Śatapathabrāhmaṇa (शतपथब्राह्मण):—[=śata-patha-brāhmaṇa] [from śata-patha > śata] n. ‘the Brāhmaṇa with a h° paths or sections’ Name of a well-known Brāhmaṇa attached to the Vājasaneyi-saṃhitā or White Yajur-veda, (like the Saṃhitā, this Brāhmaṇa is ascribed to the Ṛṣi Yājñavalkya; it is perhaps the most modern of the Brāhmaṇas, and is preserved in two Śākhās or schools, Mādhyaṃdina and Kāṇva; the version belonging to the former is best known, and is divided into fourteen Kāṇḍas or books which contain one hundred Adhyāyas or lectures [or according to another arrangement into sixty-eight Prapāṭhakas]; the whole work is regarded as the most systematic and interesting of all the Brāhmaṇas, and though intended mainly for ritual and sacrificial purposes, is full of curious mythological details and legends; cf. yajur-veda, vijasaneyisaṃhitā, brāhmaṇa), [Indian Wisdom, by Sir M. Monier-Williams 25 etc.]
