The world and souls are all pervaded by God and dwell in God. Those who do not know this truth, they should not expect much benefit of the study of the Vedas.

This [Prana] and that [Sun] are the same. This is warm and that is warm. This [Prana] they call, "Svara" [स्वर] (what goes out), and that [sun] they call, "Pratyasvara" [प्रत्यास्वर] (what returns). Therefore one should meditate on Udgitha [OM] as this [Prana] and that [sun].
----------The Chandogya Upanishad: 1: 3: 2
When the vital breath [prana] "goes out" at the time of death, it never returns to the corpse, but the sun, after having set, "returns" the next day.

----------The Chandogya Upanishad: 1: 3: 2

When the vital breath [prana] "goes out" at the time of death, it never returns to the corpse, but the sun, after having set, "returns" the next day.

Now is described the meditation on the Udgitha with reference to the deities:
One should meditate on the Udgitha [OM] [ॐ] as the sun who gives warmth. When the sun rises he sings [the Udgitha] [OMKAR] for the benefit of all creatures. When he rises he destroys darkness and fear. He who knows this becomes the destroyer of darkness and fear.
----------The Chandogya Upanishad: 1: 3: 1
When the sun rises he sings the Udgitha [OM] so that the creatures may obtain food, just as the... udgatri priest sings for the food of the sacrificer. If the sun did not rise, the grain would never ripen.
He who knows that the sun is endowned with the properties stated in the text becomes the destroyer of all fears in the form of birth and death, and also of their cause, namely, darkness in the form of ignorance.

This syllable OM is used to give assent, for wherever one assents to something, one says OM (yes).Now, what is assent is gratification. He who knows this and meditates on the syllable OM, the Udgitha, indeed, obtains all his desires.
----------The Chandogya Upanishad: 1: 1: 8
"By the means of this [syllable] [OM] [ॐ] the threefold knowledge proceeds [the Samaveda, the Rigveda and the Yajurveda]. When the [adhvaryu] priest gives an order [in a sacrifice], he says OM. When the [hotri] priest recites [the hymn], he says OM. When the [udgatri] priest [sings] the Saman, he says OM. All this is done for the glory of the Imperishable Atman [Brahman] by the greatness of That syllable [ॐ] and by Its essence."
----------The Chandogya Upanishad: 1: 1: 9
तेनेयं त्रयी विद्या वर्तत ओमित्याश्रावत्योमिति शॅ सत्योमित्यु़ढ्गायत्येतस्यैवाक्षरस्यापचित्यै महिम्ना रसेन ॥ १:
"I [God] am OM"-----Shri Krishna [the Gita: 7: 8, 9: 17, 10: 25]
"OM is verily Brahman"-----The Brihadaranyaka Upanishad: 5: 1: 1
"He who meditates on OM with the intention-'I shall attain Brahman' does verily attain Brahman [Liberation] [मोक्ष]"-----The Taittiriya Upanishad: 1: 8: 1
...
NOTE: The eight position in the verse is in relation to the series of 7 essences in verse 2 [previous post]. It means the Ultimate i.e. the Supreme position. In the end of all the essences the Ultimate and the Supreme One we reach in the end is OM i.e. Brahman.
स एष रसानाँ रसतमः परमः परार्ध्योsष्टमो यदुद्गीथः।----------छान्दोग्य उपनिषद्:१: १: ३ १: ९ ॥
The essence of all these beings is earth; the essence of earth is water; the essence of water is plants; the essence of plants is a person; the essence of a person is speech; the essence of speech is the Rigveda; the essence of the Rigveda is the Samaveda; the essence of the Samaveda is the UDGITHA [which is OM {AUM} (ॐ)]
----------The Chandogya Upanishad: 1: 1: 2
एषां भूताना पृथिवी रसः पृथिव्या आपो रसः। अपामोषध यो रस ओषधीनां पुरुषो रसः पुरुषस्य वाग्रसो वाच ऋग्रस ऋचः साम रसः ...साम्न उद्गीथो रसः॥
The word, "रस" in the text is explained in different ways-----as essence, origin, support, end cause, and effect. Rasa (रस) originally means the sap of trees. That sap may be conceived either as the essence extracted from the tree, or as what gives vigour and life to a tree. In the former case, it might be transferred to the conception of effect, in the latter to that of cause.
In our sentence it has sometimes the one, sometimes the other meaning.
Earth is the support of all beings; water pervades the earth; plants arise from water; man lives by plants; speech is the best part of man; the Rik (Rigveda) is the best part of speech; the Saman (Samaveda) is the best extract from the Rik and the UDGITHA i.e. OM ॐ is the crown of even the Saman (Samaveda), the highest of all.
The syllable OM, called the UDGITHA, should be meditated upon; for people sing the Udgitha, beginning with OM.
----------The Chandogya Upanishad: 1: 1: 1
The syllable Om is uttered at the beginning and the end of a hymn. The same Om is a symbol and the dearest name of the Supreme Self. The text describes its symbolic nature.
UDGITHA is a hymn of the Samaveda. A part of the ritualistic worship laid down in the Samaveda, this hymn is sung at the time of a sacrifice. Om, again, is a part of the Udgitha hymn.
This syllable OM is used to give assent, for wherever one assents to something, one says OM (yes).Now, what is assent is gratification. He who knows this and meditates on the syllable OM, the Udgitha, indeed, obtains all his desires.
----------The Chandogya Upanishad: 1: 1: 8

In the beginning all this manifested universe was non-existent. From it was born what exists. That [i.e. Brahman described as non-existent] created Itself by Itself; therefore it is called 'Self-Made' [Sukritam] [सुकृतम्]
That which is Self-made is flavour [rasa (रस) or essence]; for truly, on obtaining the flavour one becomes blissful.
----------The Taittiriya Upanishad: 2: 7
