ChandogyaUpa2 1,2 Next is the meditation on the Seven fold Saman. One should meditate on the Seven fold Saman as speech. Whatsoever in speech is hum that is the syllable him; whatever is pra that is Prastava; whatever is a that is Adi (the first); whatever is ut that is Udgitha; whatever is prati that is Pratihara; whetever is upa that is Upadrava; and whatever is ni that is Nidhana.
ChandogyaUpa2 7 Next, the form of the sun that appears when it is past afternoon and before sunset, that is Upadrava. On this, the wild animals are dependent. As they participate in the Upadrava part of this Saman, so do they, when they see a man, run away to the Forest, as to a place of safety.
ChandogyaUpa2 3 Udgitha has Three syllables; Upadrava has Four syllables. Three and Three become equal. One syllable is left over; that really is tri syllabic; so it also becomes equal.
