Even Wikipedia confirms that Mantra Pushpam is taken from Yajur Veda. Where this hymn can be found? Whether in Krishna Yajur Veda or Shukla Yajur Veda or both? And also quote the number of hymn.

    I have a book (hard copy) on Veda mantras that has all these mantras. But, no i don't have a hard copy of the whole TA.@TriyugiNarayanMani – Rickross Aug 4 '17 at 10:00
  • Looks like they have deeper meaning. What do "waters" and "abode" here mean? – The Destroyer Aug 4 '17 at 10:10
  • @TheDestroyer yes they must have deeper meanings, but i know as much as is written :D.. the translations are according to rishi aurobindo, sayana, bhaskara bhatta.. actually water is described here as everything.. as is done in other Veda mantras like apo va idam sarvam.. – Rickross Aug 4 '17 at 10:19
