ChandogyaUpa2 1 Agni is Himkara, Vayu is Prastava, the Sun is Udgitha, the Stars are Pratihara, and the Moon is Nidhana. This is the Rajana Saman woven in the deities.
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.
ChandogyaUpa2 1 Of the Samans, I choose the one that bellows, as it were, and is good for cattle, thus (some think). This is the loud singing sacred to Agni, the undefined one to Prajapati, the defined one to Soma, the soft and smooth to Vayu, the smooth and strong to Indra, the heron like to Brihaspati, and the ill sounding to Varuna. Verily, one may practise all these, but should avoid the one sacred to Varuna.
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 6 Then when I said, I take refuge in Bhuvah I said only this I take refuge in Agni, I take refuge in Vayu, I take refuge in the Sun.
ChandogyaUpa3 2 This same Brahman has Four feet. The organ of speech is one foot. Prana (the organ of smell) is one foot, the eye is one foot and the ear is one foot. This is with reference to the body. Next, with reference to the Devas. Agni is one foot, Vayu is one foot, Aditya is one foot and the quarters are one foot. Thus both the meditations, with reference to the body and with reference to the Devas, are enjoined.
ChandogyaUpa4 1 Vayu indeed is the absorber. For when a fire goes out, it is in air that it merges; when the sun sets, it is in air that it merges; when the moon sets, it is in air that it merges.
ChandogyaUpa4 4 These, indeed, are the Two absorbers Vayu among the Devas and Prana among the sense organs.
ChandogyaUpa5 1 Then the king said to Indradyumna Bhallaveya, O descendant of Vyaghrapada, what is that Atman on which you meditate He replied, Vayu only, O venerable king. The king said, This that you meditate upon as Atman is the Vaisvanara Atman known as "the diversely coursed". Therefore from diverse directions offerings come to you, and various rows of Chariots follow you.
