The Supremacy of the Prana(vital breath)

The organ of speech departed. After being away for a whole year, it came back and said: How have you been able to live without me? The other organs replied: We lived just as dumb people live, without speaking, but breathing with the prana (nose), seeing with the eye, hearing with the ear and thinking with the mind. Then the organ of speech entered the body.
Sama Veda, Chandogya Upanishad V, I - The Supremacy of the Prana, 8

The eye departed. After being away for a whole year, it came back and said: How have you been able to live without me? The other organs replied: We lived just as blind people live, without seeing, but breathing with the prana, speaking with the tongue, hearing with the ear and thinking with the mind. Then the eye entered the body.
Sama Veda, Chandogya Upanishad V, I - The Supremacy of the Prana, 9

The ear went out. After being away for a whole year, it came back and said: How have you been able to live without me? The other organs replied: We lived just as deaf people live, without hearing, but breathing with the prana. Speaking with the tongue, seeing with the eye and thinking with the mind. Then the ear entered the body.
Sama Veda, Chandogya Upanishad V, I - The Supremacy of the Prana, 10

The mind went out. After being away for a whole year, it came back and said: How have you been able to live without me? The other organs replied: We lived just like children whose minds are not yet formed, without thinking with the mind, but breathing with the prana, speaking with the tongue, seeing with the eye and hearing with the ear. Then the mind entered the body.
Sama Veda, Chandogya Upanishad V, I - The Supremacy of the Prana, 11

Then as the vital breath was about to depart, he uprooted the organs from their places just as a noble horse tears up the pegs to which its feet are tied. They came to him and said: Revered Sir, be thou our lord; thou art the best among us. Do not depart from us.
Sama Veda, Chandogya Upanishad V, I - The Supremacy of the Prana, 12
