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 7,8 Before the starting of the midday libation, the sacrificer sits down behind the Agnidhriya fire, facing the north, and sings the Saman sacred to the Rudras (O Agni), open the door of the region of the sky that we may see you for obtaining the sovereignty of the sky.
ChandogyaUpa2 9,10 Then he offers the oblation (with the Mantra) Salutation to Vayu, who dwells in the region of the sky. Obtain this region 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. (As a result) the Rudras grant him (the region of the sky connected with) the midday libation.
ChandogyaUpa3 1 And that which is the second nectar (i.e. the white form), that verily the Rudras enjoy with Indra 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 Rudras, and with Indra 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 east and sets in the west, even twice so long does he (the Sun) rise in the south and set in the north and even so long does he retain the sovereignty and the heavenly Kingdom of the Rudras.
ChandogyaUpa3 3 Now, (his next) forty Four years are the mid day libation, (for) the metre Tristubh is made up of forty Four syllables, and the mid day libation is related to the Tristubh metre. With this, the Rudras are connected. The Pranas indeed are the Rudras, for they cause all this (universe) to weep.
ChandogyaUpa3 4 During this period of life if anything (e.g. illness) causes him pain, he should repeat O Pranas, Rudras, unite this mid day libation of mine with the third libation. May I, who am a sacrifice, not be lost in the midst of the Rudras who are the Pranas He surely recovers from that and becomes healthy.
