Foreword
There are many resources on Yajurveda Sandhyavandanam available on the internet. While each of
them has something special that adds to an adhyaayi’s understanding, how wonderful would it be if
the essence of all of them was condensed into one single resource? That was the thought behind this
document’s origin.
This document was originally intended as a ‘rough book’ to compile all the relevant theory and
practice on the Yajurveda Sandhyavandanam in one concise resource, which the adhyaayi could use
for his own study and practice.
Over a year’s time, this book developed into an invaluable reference that contained everything from
the scriptural sanctions for the Sandhyavandanam, to the correct Vedic ‘ucchaaranai’ of various
mantras recited during the Sandhyavandanam procedure.
The adhyaayi has continued to update this document as his own understanding of the deep meaning
and importance of the Sandhyavandanam anushtanam has improved. This process will continue.
For now, the adhyaayi offers unto the lotus feet of the Lord, version 4.0 of this book containing
many updates and corrections from the previous version.
The adhyaayi sincerely apologises for any mistakes that may be found in the document. Please email
details of errors of omission or commission to [email protected] for correction in the next
edition.

Scriptural Authority (Pramanam)
There are references in the vedas regarding Sandyavandanam. A reference occurs in "Second prasna,
Second Anuvaka of Thaithria Aranyaka (Yajur Veda)", explaining procedure of worship. The
procedure of worship indicated is by offering "Arghya" (water in the palms of both hands thrown
up), at the time of sunrise and sunset, meditating on Aditya (Sun).
Ishvashya upanishad of Shukla Yajurveda also refers to Sun worship as above at sunrise and sunset.
Chandogya upanisad (Chapter 2 Section 6) discusses "Aditya vidya" explaining the importance of
meditation of Sun or Aditya at sunrise and sunset, bringing out also the points mentioned above.
Chapter 3, Section 12 of this upanishad explains meditation of aditya through gayatri. It also
explains that the sun in the horizon outside and the sun element inside us are one and the same and
there is no difference. The identity should be kept in mind while meditating through gayatri. This is
the meaning of "Asavadityao brahma" recited during Sandyavandanam.
These views are also echoed in Aditya Hridaya of the Yuddakanda of Ramayan. Agasthya explains
to Sri Rama, the merits of worshipping Aditya. Aditya protects everyone, helps them in their duties,
