ChandogyaUpa8 3 Now, what people call a course of fasting is really Brahmacharya, for this Atman never perishes which one attains by means of Brahmacharya. And what people call the life of a hermit is really Brahmacharya, for verily Ara and Nya are the Two oceans in the Brahman world in the third Heaven from here and therein is the lake Airammadiya, and there is the Aparajita (unconquered) City of Brahma, and there is the Gold hall specially built by the Lord.
ChandogyaUpa8 1 Brahma expounded this to Prajapati. Prajapati to Manu and Manu to his descendants. He who has read the Veda according to the prescribed rule, in the time left over after performing his duties to the teacher, he who after having come back from the teacher s house, settles down in his household, continues the study of the Veda in a clean place, and has virtuous sons and disciples, he who withdraws all his senses into the Atman, who practises non injury to all beings except in places specially ordained, he who behaves thus throughout his life reaches the world of Brahman and does not return again yea, he does not return again.
