ChandogyaUpa2 1,2 The expounders of Brahman say, The morning libation is of the Vasus, the midday libation is of the Rudras and the third libation is of the Adityas and of the Visvadevas. Where, the, is the world of the sacrificer How can he who does not know this, perform (sacrifices) It is only after knowing this that he should perform (sacrifices).
ChandogyaUpa2 11,13 Before beginning the third libation, the sacrificer sits down behind the Ahavaniya fire, facing the north, and sings the Saman sacred to the Adityas and the one sacred to the Visvadevas (O Agni), open the door of the region of Heaven that we may see you for obtaining the sovereignty of Heaven This is the Saman sacred to the Adityas. Next is the one sacred to the Visvadevas; (O Agni), open the door of the region of Heaven that we may see you for obtaining the supreme sovereignty.
ChandogyaUpa2 14,15 Then the sacrificer offers the oblation (with the Mantra) Salutation to the Adityas and to the Visvadevas, the inhabitants of the region of Heaven. Obtain the region of Heaven for me, the sacrificer. This region, indeed, is to be obtained by the sacrificer. At the end of the duration of this life, I, the sacrificer, am willing to go there Svaha Unbar the door of the region saying this, he gets up.
ChandogyaUpa2 16 The Adityas and the Visvadevas grant him (the region appropriate to) the third libation. He alone knows the real character of the sacrifice, who knows thus.
ChandogyaUpa3 1 And that which is the third nectar (i.e. the black form), that verily the Adityas enjoy with Varuna as their leader. The Devas, indeed, neither eat nor drink; only with seeing this nectar are they satisfied.
ChandogyaUpa3 3 He who knows thus this nectar becomes one of the Adityas, and with Varuna as the leader, is satisfied only with seeing this nectar. He enters into this very form and out of this form he emerges.
ChandogyaUpa3 4 As long as the sun rises in the south and sets in the north, even twice so long does he (the Sun) rise in the west and set in the east and even so long does he retain the sovereignty and the heavenly Kingdom of the Adityas.
ChandogyaUpa3 5 Then (his next) forty Eignt years are the third libation. The metre Jagati is made up of forty Eignt syllables and the third libation is related to the Jagati metre. With this, the Adityas are connected. The Pranas indeed are the Adityas, for they accept all this.
ChandogyaUpa3 6 During this period of life if anything (e.g. illness) causes him pain, he should repeat O Pranas, Adityas, extend this third libation of mine to a full length of life. May I, who am a sacrifice, not be lost in the midst of the Adityas who are the Pranas. He surely recovers from that and becomes healthy.
