जगृहुर्वाजसन्यस्ता: काण्वमाध्यन्दिनादय: ॥ ७४ ॥
daśa pañca śatair vibhuḥ
jagṛhur vājasanyas tāḥ
yajurbhiḥ — with the yajur-mantras; akarot — he made; śākhāḥ — branches; daśa — ten; pañca — plus five; śataiḥ — with the hundreds; vibhuḥ — the powerful; jagṛhuḥ — they accepted; vāja-sanyaḥ — produced from the hairs of the horse’s mane and thus known as Vājasaneyī; tāḥ — them; kāṇva-mādhyandina-ādayaḥ — the disciples of Kāṇva and Mādhyandina, and other ṛṣis.
From these countless hundreds of mantras of the Yajur Veda, the powerful sage compiled fifteen new branches of Vedic literature. These became known as the Vājasaneyi-saṁhitā because they were produced from the hairs of the horse’s mane, and they were accepted in disciplic succession by the followers of Kāṇva, Mādhyandina and other ṛṣis.
