Both Uvata and Mahidhara (who lived prior to Sayana), who have written commentaries on the Shukla Yajur Veda, explain this verse plainly. In other words, they take the meaning at face value.
Uvata: यथेमाम् । यथा इमां वाचं कल्याणीं अनुद्वेजिनीम् । दीयतां भुज्यतामित्येवमादिकाम् । आवदानि जनेभ्योऽर्थाय । के ते जना इत्यत आह । ब्रह्मराजन्याभ्यां ब्राह्मणाय रा...
No , the Purusha Sukta of Shukla Yajurveda is not fully dedicated to Aditya.
We can say that because Surya or Aditya itself is said to be born from the eyes this Purusha in Yajurveda Samhita 31.12 . The devata of Shukla Yajur Veda Purusha Suktam Mantras from 1-16 is Purusha AdiBeej पुरुष आदिबीज - ( Purusha whom is the primary seed of creation).
That is what i always intended to say the back answer of yours say women must stay away from rituals and same for shudra but vedic richas are even created by women that's why i always intend to find answers from vedas inspite of smritis and purans the voilence prevails there. when the knowledge is also for a stranger then why not for people of us.

MAdhyandina shakha has many unique features and some of them are totally different from other Vedic recitations.
It is the second slowest chanting after Samaveda shakha. Hence the chanting is clearly heard and every letter can be heard.
Veda chanting in some shakhas involve hasta sanket or hasta sanchalana (movement of hands to indicate swaras).
Yes, he did.
Among the Madhyadina and Kanva Vajasaneyi Shakhas of Shukla Yajurveda, Sayanacharya has a commentary on the Kanva Samhita.
A book comprised of that commentary can be purchased from here. From the foreword/preface to Volume 1:
We have contemplated to bring out the edition of Kanva Samhita, with Padapatha and three commentaries in four ...
As discussed in my previous post, Rudram is present in the shukla yajurveda which is part of Rudra ashtadhyaayi which is a collection of some mantras of shukla yajurveda vajasaneyi samhita.
The fifth chapter of Rudra ashtadhyayi is the rudram (as in Krishna yajurveda) and the eighth chapter of Rudra-ashtadhyaayi is the chamakam (as in KY).
The whole of ...

There are two forms of Yajurveda: Krishna (Black) and the Shukla (White).
The Krishna Yajurveda consists of prose mixed with the mantras, therefore the word Krishna.
Among different recension of the Krishna Yajurveda, Taittrīya is the most popular one, however, Maitrāyaṇīya recension is also studied well by the scholars.
The Taittrīya Samhita has no ...
Are both Śukla and Kṛṣṇa Yajurveda saṃhitas derived from the same parent source or are they totally independent from each other?
They are totally independent of each other, but like all Vedas, there are some mantras common between both.
The Taittiriya Shakkha of the Krishna Yajur Veda was disseminated by Yajnavalkya:
Texts 64-65: Yājñavalkya, the son ...
In the highly upvoted answer, I don't see how reference to commentaries of Uvata and Mahidhara led the member to conclude that Vedas can be chanted by everyone.
Rishi Laugakshi is said to be the Mantra-Drashta for this verse. All this verse is talking about is one's wish to be blessed in a way that his speech can be addressed to everyone and let that speech ...
As you have said in your question there are 16 recensions or Shakhas of Shukla Yajurveda , and your query is -
how come there are 16 shakhas instead of one.? and Yajnavalkya learned all 16 shakhas from Surya deva. Second one is that all the 16 shishyas altered it and created their own shakha.
The exact answer of your question is given in a Srimad bhagavata ...
No, it's not present in Kṛṣṇa Yajurveda.
I've searched in Sanskrit Wikisource which contains Saṃskṛta text of Taittiriya, Maitrāyaṅī and kāthaka saṃhitās of Kṛṣṇa Yajurveda but this verse is not found in it.
Was the Śukla Yajurveda unknown to Veda-Vyāsa?
C. V. Vaidya, who tries to stay as close to tradition as possible, in History of Sanskrit Literature, says that the Śukla Yajurveda was compiled a generation or two after Kṛṣṇa Dvaipāyana Vyāsa had already compiled the 3 Vedas i.e., Ṛgveda, Kṛṣṇa Yajurveda and Sāmaveda. And because Atharvaveda was also compiled ...
It's pretty clear from Shankara's commentary that you have quoted. The golden disc is the visible sun. The rishi is praying to have a vision of the deeper truth beyond the physical sun i.e. the underlying Brahman. The physical golden disc of the sun (symbolically representing the entire physical universe) is brilliant, beautiful and mesmerizing. Hence it is ...
The most important point to consider is that, as far as my knowledge, no Shaiva acharyas nor Vaishnava ones, nor acharyas from any background have ever dealt with this trouble. There is as per my knowledge, total acceptance of Ambika being wife of Shiva by all Shaiva Vedantins and Smartas. Neither Shankara, nor Srikantha and Appayya Dikshitar, nor Vaishnavas ...
(1) There is a typo in your question. The word meaning "to your sister" spelled as svasrā rather that svastrā. See the scan below from the version edited by Wasudev Laxman Sastri Pansikar and published by Pandurang Jawaji of the Nirnayasagar Press:

First, we have to understand who is the feminine version of Rudra? Maruts are also said to be the children of Rodasī (consort of Rudra) and the same hymn distinctly addresses Rudra as their father RV5.57. Rudra is not necessarily a single entity or a group because of the unique nature of Rudra to manifest across various concepts and divinities.Please note ...
