Krishna Yajurveda Works of the Taittiriya Shaka

edited by Subramania Sarma et al.

The Yajurveda literature is divided into the White (Shukla) and the Black (Krishna) Yajurveda literature,
and the latter is divided into four Branches (Shakas), the most important of which is the Taittiriya Shaka.

Here we offer Krishna Yajurveda works of the Taittiriya Shaka as Devanagari editions with svara marks.
We also offer non-accented transliterated searchable files and accented high-quality printable files.

Yajurveda - Sansknet Documents

The site www.Sansknet.org of the Rashtriya Sanskrit Vidyapeetha, Tirupati, was closed in January 2005 due to lack of help and due to lack of feedback. The Taittiriya documents formerly downloadable at that site are no longer accessible. Therefore we offer here these Sansknet Taittiriya documents which we have converted from HTML to PDF files for the convenience of our readers:
