daiva दैव

Definition: 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.
