Charaiveti Charaiveti - March along! :Aitareya Upanishad

"Charanbai madhu vindati charantsvadu mudambaram.
Suryasya pasya sreemanam yo na tandrayate charan.
Charaiveti, charaiveti."

Aitareya Upanishad, 7.15

["The honey bee, by its motion, collects honey, and birds enjoy tasty fruits by constant movement. The sun is revered, by virtue of its constant shining movement; therefore, one should be constantly in motion. Keep moving, keep moving on!"]

चरैवेति! चरैवेति!

  1. Is this in Aitareya Brahmana or Aitareya Aranyaka? Can you please post the entire charaiveti sukta and also mention exactly which text is it from?
