taittariiya aaraNyake mantrapuSpamantraaNi


This is a sublime mantra in the Taittareeya Aaranyakam of Krishna Yajurveda Saakhaa.  The manthras are chanted in unison by all scholars who are present in a gathering for a sacred function as a concluding benediction. The combination of words and the scheme of chanting envisaged would give all an ambience of complete   release from all worldly things and a feeling of absoulte union with the Supreme.  The full chant would take about four minutes.  Like the Sannyaasa Suuktham  ( Na karmanaa na prajayaa dhanena) or the Naasadiiya suuktham (नासद् आसीन्नो सद् आसीत् तदानींनासीद् रजो नो व्योमो परो यत्। nasad aaseetnno sas aasiit tadaneem naasiid rajo no vyaomo paro yat etc...)of  Rk Vedam,  this mantra is also simply something out of the world.  The text or meaning can be given here and one can hear this chanted in tapes or other audio visual meadia, but  it would be a perfect experience to see and participate in a groups chant at the conclusion of the worship of God on a festive occasion or at the conculusion of a yajna...The ecstacy is beyond words.
The contents are eulogy in praise of water.  The whole life on earth is completely dependent on water..and naturally we speculate that the basic source for all that we find in nature is water. A matter of fact theoretical physicist may disagree and  try to trace the relation between the objects and water but may not be agree that water is the mainstay for all other things .  However  the the imaginative Vedic singer has realized that without the presence of water all other objects are of no use for him since there can be no life without water.  This fact has been proved by the theories of evolution of life in planets.  Oxygen as an inherent component of  many compounds is found in all parts of the universe. But  life germinates only when there is water.  In fact nascent oxygen can destroy life completely .  The Supreme Soul who is  our Creator placed the exact combination of gases and water vapour on the surface of this beautiful earth and life started germinating. On this point the seers singing vedas and the modern scientists are all one..water is the platform from where alone organic life could be germinated and sustained.  The theory of deluges and change of yugas (the Indian measure of span of a life cycle)  are all based on the variation of the proportion of water and other matter on this earth.
So they started to speculate.  "One who knows the flowers (representing the noble presence) of water, will have his life fruitful, full of progeny and cattle. The manthra is just expostulation of the glory of water.  With repeated chants stressing the importance of water as the mainstay of all other matter, and by declaring that everything that is sublime is based on water, the Veda try to underline the supreme importance of water. Is fire the source of water? Is the air source of water? Is the scorching  Sun the source of water? Is the moon? Are the stars? Are the clouds? Is the rainy season?   True all these things have an effect in bringing water to us, Simultaneously all these things are perceived by us in the benevolent manner we see them only because of the balance of water content of the earth, The mantra simply says that one who is in full knowledge and in synchronisation with the nature and its contents alone can lead a full and contended life.  In the stanza where the mantra says  "yo apsu naavam pratishtitam veda..." one should know that there is a lifeboat anchored in the middle of the water and he has always the final refuge and protection there.. is the declaration of our ultimate faith in the benevolence of natural forces.
The chant concludes with the praise for the Universal God, the king of kings,
King of kings, we praise thee,
You  make us victorious ever,
You fulfil all our desires,
May the king  bless me with wealth,
To fulfill all that I ever desired
Oh, Kubhera (the possessor and custodian of all worldly weatlth), we praiseThee,
Salutations to thee the supreme Lord, king of kings.
