Which is Rk, Sama and Udgitha? - Significance of Om from Chandogya upanishad

Prayer of the Day

Om Prayer from Chandogya Upanishad

कतमा कतमर्क्कतमत्कतमत्साम कतमः कतमौद्गीथ इति विमृष्टम् भवति ॥

Hymn as Romanized text


katamA katamarkkatamatkatamatsAma katamaH katamaudgItha iti vimRuShTam bhavati ||

(katamA katama Rk katamat katamat sAma katamaH katama udgItha iti vimRuShTam bhavati | )


Meaning of the Prayer Hymn:

 Which which is Rk, which which is Sama, which which is Udgitha?
That is reflected on (now).


1. katam - which; vimRuShTa - reflected on.
2. The udgItha upasana section revolves around three things
- Rk, Sama and Udgitha. So it is important to define and
correlate these three. Hence this hymn tunes us for that definition 
which follows in the next hymn.
