YAJNAVALKYA

At Uddalaka's Ashram

Sage Uddalaka clearly recognised that Yajnavalkya was a great person who had come to this world with the great mission of holding aloft the divine light of Jnana. He took Yajnavalkya into his gurukula with a heart filled with love and joy.

You know that Yajnavalkya had lost the knowledge of Yajurveda which he had gained earlier. The pain of it had remained fresh in his heart. He had become almost
proficient in Vedic studies, no doubt. But how could the education be complete without a thorough study of Yajurveda? Therefore he tried to regain the knowledge of Yajurveda which he had lost. During his stay in the ashram he engaged himself in m ore intense meditation doing more and more Japa of Gayatri mantra, for Gayatri is the mother of the Vedas. He observed severe austerities and rigorous vows.
