The Yajur Veda (knowledge of sacrifice or sacrificial texts and formulas) is one of the four Vedas in Hinduism. It contains liturgical texts used during various important Hindu rituals. There are two major samhitas, or collections, the Black (Krishna) and White (Shukla). The White Yajurveda, translated here by English Indologist Ralph T. H. Griffith, focuses on the liturgy, whereas the Black Yajurveda includes more explanatory material about the rituals. The core text of the Yajurveda falls within the classical Mantra period of Vedic Sanskrit at the end of the 2nd millennium BCE.

This book has 66,025 words, 144 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1899.
