daiva Appears in the list of sciences in the Chāndogya Upanisad, where Sankara explains it as utpāta- jñāna, apparently the knowledge of portents.’ The St. Peters¬burg Dictionary suggests that the word is here used adjectivally, and this view is followed by Little and by Bohtlingk in his translation.
daiva Is the patronymic of the mythical Atharvan in the first two Vamśas (lists of teachers) of the Brhadāranyaka Upanisad.
