‘Descendant of Jabāla,’ is the metronymic of Mahā- śāla and Satyakāma. Jābāla is also mentioned as a teacher in the Jaiminīya Upanisad Brāhmana, which refers to the Jābālas4 as well. The Jābāla Grhapatis are spoken of in the Kausītaki Brāhmana.
Is the name of a teacher twice mentioned in the śatapatha Brāhmaṇa, once as instructing Dhīra — śātaparṇeya, and once as one of the Brahmins who received instruction from Aśvapati. In the parallel passage of the Chāndogya Upaniṣad the name is Prācīnaśāla Aupaman- yava. The word must be considered a proper name rather than an adjective (Mahāáāla), as it is taken in the St. Petersburg Dictionary.
