ChandogyaUpa4 5 Once upon a time, while Kapeya Saunaka and Kaksaseni Abhipratarin were being served with food, a celibate student of sacred knowledge begged of them. They did not give him anything.
ChandogyaUpa4 6 The Brahmacharin said, Prajapati, the one Deva swallowed up the Four great ones; he is the protector of the worlds. O Kapeya, O Abhipratarin, mortals do not see him who dwells variously. Even from him, for whom all this food is meant, you have withheld it.
ChandogyaUpa4 7 Kapeya Saunaka, reflecting on those words, approached him (and said) He who is the self of all Devas and the creator of all beings, who has undecaying teeth, who is the devourer, who is the wise one, who is himself never eaten (but) who devours even those who are not food; and hence (the knowers) describe his magnificence as immeasurable such, indeed, is the Brahman, O Brahmacharin, whom we worship (Then he told the servants) Give him food
