Patrick Olivelle (2014), The Early Upanishads, Oxford University Press. [15], A notable structural feature of Chandogya Upanishad is that it contains many nearly identical passages and stories also found in Brihadaranyaka Upanishad, but in precise meter.

There are three branches of Dharma (religious life, duty): Yajna (sacrifice), Svādhyāya (self study) and Dāna (charity) are the first, [133][135] The various objects produced from these materials do not change the essence, they change the form. [133][134], Living beings are like rivers that arise in the mountains, states the Upanishad, some rivers flow to the east and some to the west, yet they end in an ocean, become the ocean itself, and realize they are not different but are same, and thus realize their Oneness. [143] The latter asks, "teach me, Sir, the knowledge of Soul, because I hear that anyone who knows the Soul, is beyond suffering and sorrow". Reviews There are no reviews yet. when one's Soul, indeed, is this whole world, It is True, it is Real, it is the Self (atman), and Thou Art That, Śvetaketu. [71] This Brahman-Atman premise is more consciously and fully developed in section 3.14 of the Chandogya Upanishad. The essence of all beings is the earth, the essence of the earth is water, the essence of water the plants, the essence of plants man, the essence of man speech, the essence of speech the Rig-veda, the essence of the Rig-veda the Sama-veda, the essence of the Sama-veda the udgitha (which is Om). UPANISHAD: Upanishads are one of the sacred Scriptures of the Hindus. [121][122] These sections are nearly identical to those found in section 14.9.1 of Sathapatha Brahmana, in section 6.2 of Brihadaranyaka Upanishad, and in chapter 1 of Kaushitaki Upanishad. Tapas (austerity, meditation) is the second, while dwelling as a Brahmacharya for education in the house of a teacher is third, [144] Sanatkumara first inquires from Narada what he already has learnt so far. [31][32][33], The verses 1.12.1 through 1.12.5 describe a convoy of dogs who appear before Vaka Dalbhya (literally, sage who murmurs and hums), who was busy in a quiet place repeating Veda. The fourth verse of the 13th volume uses the word Upanishad, which Max Muller translates as "secret doctrine",[37][38] and Patrick Olivelle translates as "hidden connections". He who Grows Forth[151] is the one who Believes, therefore one must desire to understand what yields Growing Forth (Nististhati, निस्तिष्ठति), Deeper than Memory is Asha (आशा, hope), states section 7.14 of the Upanishad, because kindled by Hope the Memory learns and man acts.

[54] Only three stages are explicitly described, Grihastha first, Vanaprastha second and then Brahmacharya third. Chapter 6 The Mandukya, Taittiriya and Chandogya Upanishads 6.1 The Mandukya Upanishad The Upanishad is named after the sage Mandukya who taught about the four states of consciousness, namely, waking, dreaming, deep sleep and fourth, known as turiya, which is the highest. [134] The Sat enters these and gives them individuality, states the Upanishad. [21] It calls the syllable Om as udgitha (उद्गीथ, song, chant), and asserts that the significance of the syllable is thus: the essence of all beings is earth, the essence of earth is water, the essence of water are the plants, the essence of plants is man, the essence of man is speech, the essence of speech is the Rig Veda, the essence of the Rig Veda is the Sama Veda, and the essence of Sama Veda is udgitha. [18][19], The Chandogya Upanishad, like other Upanishads, was a living document. Other scholars point to the structure of the verse and its explicit "three branches" declaration. Thus, to understand something, studying the essence of one is the path to understanding the numerous manifested forms. comment. [18] The second group consists of chapters III-V, with a collection of more than 20 Upasanas and Vidyas on premises about the universe, life, mind and spirituality. [25] The gods thereafter revered the Udgitha as Manas (mind), but the demons afflicted it and therefore one imagines both what is worth imagining and what is not worth imagining, because mind is afflicted with good and evil. Chandogya Upanishad: ( 30/03/2013. ) He who experiences Joy for Oneself is the one who engages in Creative Activity, therefore one must desire to understand what is Joy (Sukham, सुखं), It is associated with the Samaveda. It includes as dharma – ethical duties such as charity to those in distress (Dāna, दान), personal duties such as education and self study (svādhyāya, स्वाध्याय, brahmacharya, ब्रह्मचर्य), social rituals such as yajna (यज्ञ).

Heat, food and water nourish all living beings, regardless of the route they are born. 55 No. [145] One must adore and revere Memory as the manifestation of Brahman, states the text. The first volume of the fifth chapter of the text tells a fable and prefaces each character with the following maxims. [164] The section thus states all external forms of rituals are equivalently achievable internally when someone becomes a student of sacred knowledge and seeks to know the Brahman-Atman.

Prana is indeed the eldest and the best (of the organs). [22], Rik (ऋच्, Ṛc) is speech, states the text, and Sāman (सामन्) is breath; they are pairs, and because they have love and desire for each other, speech and breath find themselves together and mate to produce song. This is my Soul in the innermost heart, greater than the earth, greater than the aerial space, greater than these worlds. [100] The boy, eager for knowledge, goes to the sage Haridrumata Gautama, requesting the sage's permission to live in his school for Brahmacharya. This Upaniṣad comprises of the last 8 chapters of the Chāndogya Brāhmaṇa; obviously it contains 8 chapters. [71] Max Muller states, that while this reasoning may appear weak and incomplete, but it shows that Vedic era human mind had transitioned from "revealed testimony" to "evidence-driven and reasoned knowledge". [6][7] The volumes are a motley collection of stories and themes. Verily he becomes the eldest and greatest who knows the Eldest and Greatest (jesṭa-sresṭha.)

Each chapter is divided into sections and each section contains a number of verses. Having entered it, he becomes immortal as the gods are immortal. [7] Each Khanda has varying number of verses. One must adore and revere Will as manifestation of Brahman. [177][178] Each and every living creature is understood, in this Chandogya Upanishad-inspired fundamental doctrine of Hinduism, to be a manifestation of the same underlying nature, where there is a deep sense of interconnected oneness in every person and every creature, and that singular nature renders each individual being identical to every other. [106], The fifth chapter of the Chandogya Upanishad opens with the declaration,[109]. Brihadaranyaka literally means "great wilderness or forest". [21][22] The highest song is Om, asserts volume 1.1 of Chandogya Upanishad. Part Five . Max Muller has translated, commented and compared Chandogya Upanishad with ancient texts outside India. He who Understands the Truth speaks the Truth, therefore one must desire to understand what is Understanding (Vijñana, विज्ञान), Panchagni vidya or knowledge appears in the Chandogya Upanishad (Chapter 5 Mantras 3-10) and the Brhadaranyaka Upanishad (Chapter 6.2). His father, through 16 volumes of verses of Chandogya Upanishad, explains. [146] One must adore and revere Mind as Brahman. [143][144] One must adore and revere Strength as the manifestation of Brahman. [167][168], This theory is also known as the "four states of consciousness", explained as the awake state, dream-filled sleep state, deep sleep state, and beyond deep sleep state. A cloud is formed, that is Prastāva Chandogya Upanishad is one of the oldest Upanishad written on the Vedic Brahmana period about ninth to eighth century BC. [145] Higher than Strength, states section 7.9 of the Upanishad, is Anna (अन्नं, food, nourishment) because with proper Food, man becomes Strong. Anthony Warder (2009), A Course in Indian Philosophy, Motilal Banarsidass.

Prajapati states, "he by whose departure, the body is worst off, is the one". [174], The philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer admired and often quoted from Chandogya Upanishad, particularly the phrase "Tat tvam asi", which he would render in German as "Dies bist du", and equates in English to “This art thou.”[175][176] One important teaching of Chandogya Upanishad, according to Schopenhauer is that compassion sees past individuation, comprehending that each individual is merely a manifestation of the one will; you are the world as a whole. Secondly, verse 3.17.6 mentions Krishna Devakiputra (Sanskrit: कृष्णाय देवकीपुत्रा) as a student of sage Ghora Angirasa. What is the origin of this world? 4, pages 610-616, Max Muller translates as "know", instead of "understand", see Max Muller, The Upanishads Part 1, page 121, verse 7.16.1, Oxford University Press. Max Muller notes that the term "space" above, was later asserted in the Vedanta Sutra verse 1.1.22 to be a symbolism for the Vedic concept of Brahman. The Chandogya Upanishad is a major Hindu philosophical text incorporated in the Sama Veda, and dealing with meditation and Brahman. [51] The Upanishad describes the three branches of dharma as follows: त्रयो धर्मस्कन्धा यज्ञोऽध्ययनं दानमिति प्रथम [133][134], Man's journey to self-knowledge and self-realization, states volume 6.14 of Chandogya Upanishad, is like a man who is taken from his home in Gandharas, with his eyes covered, into a forest full of life-threatening dangers and delicious fruits, but no human beings. The Chandogya Upanishad is a Sanskrit text embedded in the Chandogya Brahmana of the Sama Veda of Hinduism. [147] The text states in section 7.13, that deeper than Space is Smara (स्मरो, memory) because without memory universe to man would be as if it didn't exist. [48][49] The metaphorical theme in this volume of verses, states Paul Deussen, is that the universe is an embodiment of Brahman, that the "chant" (Saman) is interwoven into this entire universe and every phenomenon is a fractal manifestation of the ultimate reality.

Speech is indeed the richest. ऽत्यन्तमात्मानमाचार्यकुलेऽवसादयन्सर्व एते पुण्यलोका भवन्ति ब्रह्मसँस्थोऽमृतत्वमेति ॥ १ ॥[52] 16, No. [31] The 12th volume in particular ridicules the egotistical aims of priests through a satire, that is often referred to as "the Udgitha of the dogs". [147], In its exposition of progressive meditation for Self-knowledge, the Chandogya Upanishad starts by referring to the outer worldly knowledges as name. [25], The legend in section 1.2 of Chandogya Upanishad states that gods took the Udgitha (song of Om) unto themselves, thinking, "with this [song] we shall overcome the demons". [98] The rich generous king is referred to as Ṡūdra, while the poor working man with the cart is called Brāhmaṇa (one who knows the Brahman knowledge). University of California press, 1996. In volumes 2 through 26 of the seventh chapter, the Upanishad presents, in the words of Sanatkumara, a hierarchy of progressive meditation, from outer worldly knowledge to inner worldly knowledge, from finite current knowledge to infinite Atman knowledge, as a step-wise journey to Self and infinite bliss. [37] This volume is one of many sections that does not fit with the preceding text or text that follows. [144][145] Narada admits to Sanatkumara that none of these have led him to Self-knowledge, and he wants to know about Self and Self-knowledge. [89] The prosperity of an individual, such as eating, drinking and experiencing the delights of life is Upasada (days during the ceremony/festival when some foods and certain foods are consumed as a community). Thou art the Prana-samsitamasi (fountainhead, crest of life-principles). [97] Raikva, is mentioned as "the man with the cart", very poor and of miserable plight (with sores on his skin), but he has the Brahman-Atman knowledge that is, "his self is identical with all beings".

[124] The path of the fathers, in after-life, is for those who live a life of rituals, sacrifices, social service and charity – these enter heaven, but stay there in proportion to their merit in their just completed life, then they return to earth to be born as rice, herbs, trees, sesame, beans, animals or human beings depending on their conduct in past life. But the Brahmasamstha – one who is firmly grounded in Brahman – alone achieves immortality. According to a 1998 review by Olivelle,[14] Chandogya was composed by 7th or 6th century BCE, give or take a century or so. [43] The latter include Hinkāra (हिङ्कार, preliminary vocalizing), Prastāva (प्रस्ताव, propose, prelude, introduction), Udgītha (उद्गीत, sing, chant), Pratihāra (प्रतिहार, response, closing) and Nidhana (निधन, finale, conclusion). [145][146] "By strength does the world stand", states verse 7.8.1 of Chandogya Upanishad. The lightning that strikes and thunder that rolls, that is Pratihāra [13], Scholars have offered different estimates ranging from 800 BCE to 600 BCE, all preceding Buddhism. The rising and setting of the sun is likened to man's cyclic state of clarity and confusion, while the spiritual state of knowing Upanishadic insight of Brahman is described by Chandogya Upanishad as being one with Sun, a state of permanent day of perfect knowledge, the day which knows no night. Salt dissolves in water, it is everywhere in the water, it cannot be seen, yet it is there and exists forever no matter what one does to the water. One must adore and revere Heat as the manifestation of Brahman. This passage has been widely cited by ancient and medieval Sanskrit scholars as the fore-runner to the asrama or age-based stages of dharmic life in Hinduism. The Chhandogya Upanishad is one of the most prominent among the major group of philosophical and mystical texts constituting one of the threefold foundation of India's spiritual lore, ... Chapter -1 : Vaishvanara-Vidya -3.5. The winds blow, that is Hinkāra To one who sees, perceives and understands Self (Soul) as Truth, asserts the Upanishad in section 7.26, the life-principle springs from the Self, hope springs from the Self, memory springs from the Self, as does mind, thought, understanding, reflection, conviction, speech, and all outer worldly knowledges.[154][155][156]. अथ यत्तपो दानमार्जवमहिँसा सत्यवचनमिति ता अस्य दक्षिणाः ॥ ४ ॥[87] [126] This idea of universal oneness of all souls, seeing others as oneself, seeing Brahman as Atman and Atman as Brahman, became a foundational premise for Vedanta theologians.[126][127]. It calls the syllable Om as udgitha (उद्गीथ, song, chant), and asserts that the significance of the syllable is thus: the essence of all beings is earth, the essence of earth is water, the essence of water are the plants, the essence of plants is man, the essence of man is speech, the essence of speech is the Rig Veda, the essence of the Rig Veda is the Sama Veda, and the essence of Sama Veda is udgitha. Chandogya Upanishad; Isha Upanishad; Kaivalya Upanishad; Katha Upanishad; Mandukya Upanishad; Taittiriya Upanishad; Mandukya Upanishad Gaudapada Karika; Works of Shankaracharya. The sixth chapter of the Chandogya Upanishad contains the famous Tat Tvam Asi ("That Thou art") precept, one regarded by scholars[128][129][130] as the sum-total or as one of the most important of all Upanishadic teachings. It is associated with the Samaveda. Lord of food, bring hither food, bring it!, Om!". V-i-1: Om, Verily, he who knows the eldest and the best, surely becomes the eldest and the best. [133][135], In the verses of volume 3, Uddalaka asserts that life emerges through three routes: an egg, direct birth of a living being, and as life sprouting from seeds. That is Atman (Soul). 2, pages 292-310. [4], The chronology and authorship of Chandogya Upanishad, along with Brihadaranyaka and Kaushitaki Upanishads, is further complicated because they are compiled anthologies of literature that must have existed as independent texts before they became part of these Upanishads.

[64] The Rig hymns, the Yajur maxims, the Sama songs, the Atharva verses and deeper, secret doctrines of Upanishads are represented as the vehicles of rasa (nectar), that is the bees. [73] This, states Paul Deussen,[74] is with Satapatha Brahmana 10.6.3, perhaps the oldest passage in which the basic premises of the Vedanta philosophy are fully expressed, namely – Atman (Soul, Self inside man) exists, the Brahman is identical with Atman, God is inside man. Om, let us drink! [6][11] The name implies that the nature of the text relates to the patterns of structure, stress, rhythm and intonation in language, songs and chants. [162], The section is notable for the mention of "hermit's life in the forest" cultural practice, in verse 8.5.3. [edit] First Chapter The first chapter contains thirteen khandas. [139][140], The Chandogya Upanishad in volume 6.9, states that all souls are interconnected and one. [162][163] The verse 8.5.1 asserts that such life of a student is same as the yajna (fire ritual), the istam (oblations offered during the fire ritual), the sattrayanam (community fire ritual festival), the maunam (ritual of ascetic silence), the anasakayanam (fasting ritual), and the aranyayanam (a hermit life of solitude in the forest). [133][135] The commentators[133] to this section of Chandogya Upanishad explain that in this metaphor, the home is Sat (Truth, Reality, Brahman, Atman), the forest is the empirical world of existence, the "taking away from his home" is symbolism for man's impulsive living and his good and evil deeds in the empirical world, eye cover represent his impulsive desires, removal of eye cover and attempt to get out of the forest represent the seekings about meaning of life and introspective turn to within, the knowledgeable ones giving directions is symbolism for spiritual teachers and guides. The Chandogya narrative is notable for stating the idea of unity of the universe, of realization of this unity within man, and that there is unity and oneness in all beings. by Swami Lokeswarananda | 165,421 words | ISBN-10: 8185843910 | ISBN-13: 9788185843919.
