ChandogyaUpa3 2 Of these, that which was of silver is this Earth. That which was of Gold is Heaven. That which was the outer membrane is the mountains. That which was the inner membrane is the mist together with the clouds. Those which were the veins are the rivers. That which was the Water in the lower belly is the ocean.
ChandogyaUpa4 1,2 On hearing this, Janasruti Pautrayana took with him Six hundred Cows, a Gold necklace, and a Chariot drawn by Mules and went to Raikva and addressed him thus O Raikva, (here are for you) these Six hundred Cows, this Gold necklace, and this Chariot drawn by Mules. Now, revered sir, instruct me about the deity whom you worship.
ChandogyaUpa4 3 The other man answered him thus Ah, O Sudra, let this Gold necklace together with the Chariot and the Cows remain with you. Thereupon Janasruti Pautrayana again took with him one thousand Cows, a Gold necklace, a Chariot drawn by Mules and his daughter and went over to Raikva.
ChandogyaUpa4 4 Janasruti said to him O Raikva, (here are for you) these one thousand Cows, this Gold necklace, this Chariot drawn by Mules, this wife, and this Village in which you reside. Now, revered sir, please instruct me
ChandogyaUpa4 7,8 Just as one would join Gold with salt, silver with gold, tin with silver, lead with tin, iron with lead, wood with iron, and wood with leather, even so does (the Brahman priest) make good the injury of the sacrifice through the virility of these regions, of these deities, and of the Three Vedas. That sacrifice indeed is healed where there is a Brahman priest knowing thus.
ChandogyaUpa5 2 So, for you are provided a Chariot drawn by Mules, maid servants and a Gold necklace; so you eat food and see what is dear. One who thus meditates upon this Vaisvanara Atman, eats food and sees what is dear, and there is in his family the holy effulgence born of sacred wisdom. But this is only the eye of the Atman. If you had not come to me you would have become blind.
ChandogyaUpa6 5 Dear boy, just as through a single ingot of gold, all that is made of Gold would become known, for all modification is but name based upon words and the Gold alone is real;
ChandogyaUpa8 2 But those of his people, whether they are alive or dead and whatever else one desires but does not get, all that one finds by going there (into the Atman, the Akasa in the heart); for here, indeed, are those true desires of his covered by the untrue. Just as, though people who do not know the field walk again and again over the treasure of Gold hidden underground but do not find it, even so all these creatures here, though they go daily into the Brahman world, yet do not find it, for they are carried away by the untrue.
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.
