A daily collection of verses from the Vedas, Hinduism's revealed scripture
Thus people say: He approached him with Saman, that is to say, He approached him in a becoming manner. Again they say: He approached him without Saman, that is to say, He approached him in an unbecoming manner.
Sama Veda, Chandogya Upanishad II,1 - Meditation on the Fivefold Saman (I), 2
And they also say: Truly this is Saman for us, that is to say, It is good for us, when it is good. Again, they say: Truly this is not Saman for us, that is to say, It is not good for us, when it is not good.
Sama Veda, Chandogya Upanishad II,1 - Meditation on the Fivefold Saman (I), 3
Dawn like a dancer puts on her ornaments; as a cow yields her udder, so she bares her bosom. She creates light for all living beings, flinging wide the gates of darkness, as cows their enclosure.
Rig Veda I, 92, 4
We have beheld the radiance of her shining. Advancing, she drives away the horror of the night. Like a colored post, anointed at the sacrificial feast, so the Dawn, Heaven's daughter, is adorned with wondrous splendor.
Rig Veda I, 92, 5
Now we have crossed to the other shore of darkness. Dawn, shining forth, brings a limpid clarity. She smiles like an enchantress, shining in glory. Her beautiful countenance awakens us for joy.
Rig Veda I, 92, 6
