  • Not a dupe. It can be too broad but not a dupe. This post can work as a canonical post about where is the mantra present. We are getting many questions lie "Is this present in Atharva Veda, Sama veda". In future, we may get puranas also. So, this should be reopened and answered by making a community wiki.
