Yaghavalkya the sage, the Philosopher and the Yogisvara was the founder of Sukla Yajurveda a branch of Yajurveda. The Speciality of the Veda lies in the ‘Svara’ (the accent and intonation) which marks its distinction. Again, this Sukla Yajurveda has two

Hearing this sacred Suktas bestows spiritual upliftment, fearlessness, desired boon, good health, fame, wealth prosperity, and success in life, wisdom and the divine beatitude.
