ChandogyaUpa4 1 Aum. There lived Janasruti Pautrayana who made gifts with respect, who gave liberally, and who had much food cooked (for others). He built rest houses all round, thinking, Everywhere people will eat of my food
ChandogyaUpa4 2 Once at night, the swans flew along. Then one swan addressed another swan thus, Ho, Ho, O Bhallaksa, Bhallaksa, the effulgence of Janasruti Pautrayana has spread like the Heaven. Do not come in touch with it, lest it should scorch you.
ChandogyaUpa4 5,6 Janasruti Pautrayana overheard those words. As soon as he arose, he said to the attendant, Lo, did you praise me like Raikva with the cart What sort of man is this Raikva with the cart Janasruti( repeated the words of the swan) Just as all the lower casts of the dice go over to one who has won the Krita cast, so does go over to Raikva whatsoever good the creatures do; and so also to him who knows what Raikva knows. Such is he who has thus been spoken of by me
ChandogyaUpa4 7 The attendant, having searched for him, came back thinking, I could not find him Janasruti said to him, Well, where the knower of Brahman should be searched for there search for him
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
