The knowledge of Brahman is called Upanisad, because it completely annihilates the world, together with its cause (ignorance) with regard to such as possess this knowledge, for this is the meaning of the word sat (`to destroy`, `to go`) preceded by Upani (upa, `near`, ni `certainty`). A work which treats of the same knowledge is also called Upanisad. The Chandogya Brahmana of the Sama Veda, whereof this Upanisad forms a part, contains ten chapters (prapathakas); of these the first two are called the Chandogya Mantra Brahmana, the rest constitute the Chandogya-Upanisad. Many students of Indian philosophy enamoured of the idea of moksa taught by it seek to achieve it by various processes, physical or mental, generally, known as Yoga. Those who do so without being fully saturated with the spirit and substance of the Upanisads merely take a leap in the dark and court certain death, spiritual as well as physical. The first requisite is proper familarity with the first principles of Advaita philosophy (Sravana) ; and entire love with them (Manana). Then follows that sublime state wherein the sense of separateness is being slowly forgotton. But even here nothing but strict practice of the noble virtues and perfect altruism will be necessarily required of the student. CONTENTS: Preface; 1. Sankara`s Introduction 2. First Chapter 3.
