, one of the oldest Upanishad
is associated with Sama Veda
. It has been written during the Vedic Brahmana period. This Upanishad is rated ninth in the Muktika canon. It consists of hundred and eight Upanishadas. The 11th Khanda of second chapter of Chandogya Upanishad states about meditation on the Gayatra Saman. Here the mind is the syllable Him, the speech is the Prastava, the sight is the Udgitha, the hearing is the Pratihara, the breath or the prana
is the Nidhana. This is the Gayatra Saman, and it is interwoven in the five pranas. One who is aware of this and realises the Gayatra Saman that is interwoven in the pranas is able to preserve his sense organs, to reach his complete length of life, rejoices, lives happily, gets respect among his children and owns cattle. He receives name and fame everywhere.
