Vājasaneyisaṃhitā (वाजसनेयिसंहिता):—[=vājasaneyi-saṃhitā] [from vājasaneyi > vāja] f. ‘the Saṃhitā or continuous text of the Vājasaneyins’ (id est. of the hymns of the White Yajur-veda ascribed to the Ṛṣi Yājñavalkya and called śukla, ‘white’, to distinguish it from the Black or Dark Yajur-veda, which was the name given to the Taittirīya-saṃhitā [q.v.] of the Yajur-veda, because in this last, the separation between the Mantra and Brāhmaṇa portion is obscured, and the two are blended together; whereas the White Saṃhitā is clearly distinguished from the Brāhmaṇa; it is divided into 40 Adhyāyas with 303 Anuvākas, comprising 1975 sections or Kaṇḍikās: the legend relates that the original Yajus was taught by the Ṛṣi Vaiśampāyana to his pupil Yājñavalkya, but the latter having incurred his teacher’s anger was made to disgorge all the texts he had learnt, which were then picked up by Vaiśampāyana’s other disciples in the form of partridges [see taittirīya-saṃhitā] Yājñavalkya then hymned the Sun, who gratified by his homage, appeared in the form of a vājin or horse, and consented to give him fresh Yajus texts, which were not known to his former master; cf. vājin)

context information

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
