  • Balakanda, Sundara Kanda are not chapters. They are the divisions. These Kandas have chapters in them. Commented Jul 24, 2017 at 5:45

1 Answer 1


Taittariya samhita = Valmiki ramayana

Baala etc kaandas = 8 chapters of kaandas of TS

So TS is not a chapter of Yajurveda but TS itself is Yajurveda.

It is known as krishna yajurveda and it has samhita and brahmana portion in a mixed form.

The Taittiriya Samhita— (TS) which consists of 8 books or kaandas, subdivided in chapters or prapathakas, further subdivided into individual hymns. Some individual hymns in this Samhita have gained particular importance in Hinduism; e.g. TS 4.5 and TS 4.7 constitute the Shri Rudram Chamakam, while 1.8.6.i is the Shaivaite Tryambakam mantra.

The Taittiriya Brahmana (having three kaandas). Part of kathaka shakha brahmana is also included in this shakha.

the Taittiriya Aranyaka (having seven prashnas)
