ChandogyaUpa1 4 For him, speech yields the milk, which is the benefit of speech; and he becomes richin food and an eater of food, who thus knows this sacred doctrine of the Samans yea, knows the sacred doctrine of the Samans.
ChandogyaUpa2 1 The Three Vedas are Himkara; the Three worlds are Prastava; Agni, Vayu and the Sun are Udgitha; the Stars, the birds and the rays are Pratihara; the serpents, the celestial singers and the fathers are Nidhana. This is the collection of Samans woven in all things.
