The Author Speaks

Years before, I witnessed a very sad incident in the life of one of my very close friends My friend was a charming young girl of 18, very well accomplished and fairly well-to-do A certain proposal came from Tanjore and the family was very happy, when the wedding was fixed much sooner than they expected All were eagerly awaiting the wedding day.

But, just two days before, came an announcement in the newspapers that the wedding had been cancelled I rushed to my friend's house and found her extremely dejected After a lot of coaxing she burst out saying' I wonder why I was born in this wretched sect.'

What was the wretched sect she was born in? I slowly tried to cull information of the 'so-called' wretched sect I knew she was a Brahmin In that case, what was her sect? Why was the brahmin community fussy about sub-sects? Was it a healthy development? Being quite young, I could not as such arrive at any conclusion but I was certain that something was wrong somewhere The sub-sect that my friend belonged to was Sukla Yajus-also known as Katyayana Sutra Why did the enlightened brahmin community look down upon this sect alone? I started critically examining the tenets of this sub-sect later and found that it was indeed the white yajurveda or rather the superior yajurveda But yet, it was irony indeed that people belonging to this vein: veda, were supposed to be outcasts for their great Guru, Yogeswara Yagnavalkya, had remained a Veda Sunya for a short period Here again, even this supposition was baseless, for the great Yogin, was never a Veda sunya-and only the 'half baked' know ledge had tried to have a sway over the prevailing ignorance.

Arriving at this conclusion, I set in to collect material from various sources; Literary and philosophical works of Mr.FMax Muller, Swami Madhavananda, Sri Rajaji and Dr Sir S Radhakrishnan, Rt. Hon Srinivasa Sastriar and also E. R Krishnamurthi This study threw light on the multifaceted personality Yogeswara YagnavalkyaYagnavalkya as pictured by Sri Jawaharlal Nehru 'was a great dynamic person-a worthy philosopher and a versatile scholar that was ever born.' But lo! It pained me much to see how this great person had been projected by a certain class of people who had cashed on the ignorance of other people.

Hence I resolved to put in my share to educate these to whom ignorance was a bliss and to make them know about the great Saint scholar, Yagna valkyai appeal, to these groups therefore to know first and then criticise or even look down on their own brethren.

I am presenting this book, in a simple concise form, so that it may reach the masses As Vivekananda once said, "Money, Money must come but what about men?" So Men and Women must come; Men and Women after realising the great magnitude of the mighty personality, Yagnavalkya must throng in millions and proudly proclaim; 'we belong to Sukla Yajur Veda' and march with raised heads I would be most happy if this objective is achieved.

I place this before each and everyone of my readers, and request them to go through ' this pages with a desire to know Divinity.
