rvs.1.32 HYMN XXXII. Indra. 32
rvs.1.32 1 I WILL declare the manly deeds of Indra, the first that he achieved, the Thunderwielder-.
rvs.1.32 4 When, Indra, thou hadst slain the dragons' firstborn, and overcome the charms of the enchanters,
rvs.1.32 5 Indra with his own great and deadly thunder smote into pieces Vrtra, worst of Vrtras.
rvs.1.32 6 He, like a mad weak warrior, challenged Indra, the great impetuous manyslaying- Hero.
rvs.1.32 7 Footless and handless still he challenged Indra, who smote him with his bolt between the
rvs.1.32 9 Then humbled was the strength of Vrtras' mother: Indra hath cast his deadly bolt against her.

rvs.1.33 They, like emasculates with men contending, fled, conscious, by steep paths from Indra, scattered.
rvs.1.33 7 Whether they weep or laugh, thou hast overthrown them, O Indra, on the skys' extremest limit.
rvs.1.33 Although they hastened, they overcame not Indra: their spies he compassed with the Sun of morning.
rvs.1.33 9 As thou enjoyest heaven and earth, O Indra, on every side surrounded with thy greatness,
rvs.1.33 Indra, the Bull, made his ally the thunder, and with its light milked cows from out the darkness.
rvs.1.33 Then Indra, with his spirit concentrated, smote him for ever with his strongest weapon.
rvs.1.33 12 Indra broke through Ilibisas' strong castles, and Susna with his horn he cut to pieces:

rvs.4.19 1. THEE, verily, O Thunderwielding- Indra, all the Gods here, the Helpers swift to listen,
rvs.4.19 2 The Gods, as worn witheld, relaxed their efforts: thou, Indra, born of truth, wast Sovran Ruler.
rvs.4.19 3 The insatiate one, extended, hard to waken, who slumbered in perpetual sleep, O Indra,
rvs.4.19 4 Indra with might shook earth and her foundation as the wind stirs the water with its fury.
rvs.4.19 Thou didst refresh the streams and force the billows: thou, Indra, settest free obstructed rivers.
rvs.4.19 Yea, at their prayer didst check the rushing river and make the floods easy to cross, O Indra.
rvs.4.19 Indra hath set at liberty to wander on earth the streams encompassed pressed together.
rvs.4.19 11 Now, Indra! lauded, glorified with praises, let powers swell high, like rivers, for the singer.
rvs.4.20 HYMN XX. Indra. 20
rvs.4.20 1. FROM near or far away may mighty Indra giver of succour, come for our protection
rvs.4.20 2 May Indra come to us with Tawny Coursers, inclined to us, to favour and enrich us.
rvs.4.20 3 Thou, honouring this our sacrifice, O Indra, shalt give us strength and fill us full of courage.
rvs.4.20 4 Loving us well, benevolent, close beside us, drink, Godlike Indra, of the wellpressed- Soma.
rvs.4.20 I, like a bridegroom thinking of his consort, call hither Indra, him invoked of many;
rvs.4.20 6 Him who in native strength is like a mountain, the lofty Indra born or old for conquest,
rvs.4.20 At this new gift, with this laud sung before thee, extolling thee, we, Indra, will declare it.
rvs.4.20 11 Now, Indra! lauded, glorified with praises, let power swell high, like rivers, for the singer.
rvs.4.21 HYMN XXI. Indra. 21
rvs.4.21 1. MAY Indra come to us for our protection; here be the Hero, praised, our feastcompanion-.
rvs.4.21 3 Hither let Indra come from earth or heaven, hither with speech from firmament or ocean;
rvs.4.21 4 That Indra will we laud in our assemblies, him who is Lord of great and lasting riches,
rvs.4.21 Vent to his voice, inciteth men to worship; with lauds bring Indra hither to our dwellings.
rvs.4.21 9 Auspicious are thy hands, thine arms wellfashioned- which proffer bounty, Indra, to thy praiser.
rvs.4.21 10 So Indra is the truthful Lord of treasure. Freedom he gave to man by slaying Vrtra.
rvs.4.21 11 Now, Indra! lauded, glorified with praises, let power swell high, like rivers, for the singer.
rvs.4.22 HYMN XXII. Indra. 22
rvs.4.22 1. THAT gift of ours which Indra loves and welcomes, even that he makes for us, the Great and
rvs.4.22 5 These are thy great deeds, Indra, thine, the Mighty, deeds to be told aloud at all libations,
rvs.4.22 7 With joy, O Indra, Lord of Tawny Coursers, the Sisters then, these Goddesses, extolled thee,
rvs.4.22 10 Graciously listen to our prayer, O Indra, and strength of varied sort bestow thou on us.
rvs.4.22 11 Now, Indra! lauded, glorified with praises, let wealth swell high like rivers to the singer.
rvs.4.23 HYMN XXIII. Indra. 23
rvs.4.23 3 How heareth Indra offered invocation? How, hearing, marketh he the invokers' wishes?
rvs.4.23 11 Now, Indra! lauded, glorified with praises, let power swell high like rivers to the singer.
rvs.4.24 HYMN XXIV. Indra. 24
rvs.4.24 1. WHAT worthy praise will bring before us Indra, the Son of Strength, that he may grant us riches;
rvs.4.24 2 To be invoked and hymned in fight with Vrtra, that wellpraised- Indra gives us real bounties.
rvs.4.24 When warrior bands encounter one another some in the grapple quit themselves like Indra.
rvs.4.24 5 Hence many a one worships the might of Indra: hence let the brew succeed the mealoblation-.
rvs.4.24 6 Indra gives comfort to the man who truly presses, for him who longs for it, the Soma,
rvs.4.24 7 He who this day for Indra presses Soma, prepares the brew and fries the grains of barley;
rvs.4.24 Loving the hymns of that devoted servant, to him may Indra give heroic vigour.
rvs.4.24 10 Who for ten milchkine- purchaseth from me this Indra who is mine?
rvs.4.24 11 Now, Indra! lauded, glorified with praises, let wealth swell high like rivers for the singer.
rvs.4.25 HYMN XXV. Indra. 25
rvs.4.25 Who seeks bond, friendship, brotherhood with Indra? Who hath recourse unto the Sage for succour?
rvs.4.25 Of whose pressed stalk of Soma drink the Asvins, Indra, and Agni, wellinclined- in spirit?
rvs.4.25 Who sayeth, Let us press the juice for Indra, mans' Friend, the Hero manliest of heroes.
rvs.4.25 Dear is the pious, the devout, to Indra dear is the zealous, dear the Somabringer-.
rvs.4.25 6 This Hero curbs the mighty for the zealous: the pressers' brew Indra possesses solely:
rvs.4.25 7 Not with the wealthy churl who pours no Soma doth Indra, Somadrinker-, bind alliance.
rvs.4.25 Indra.
rvs.4.26 HYMN XXVI. Indra. 26
rvs.4.27 The best of sweet meath which the priests have offered: that Indra to his joy may drink, the Hero,
rvs.4.28 1. ALLIED with thee, in this thy friendship, Soma, Indra for man made waters flow together,
rvs.4.28 2 Indu, with thee for his confederate, Indra swiftly with might pressed down the wheel of Surya.
rvs.4.28 3 Indra smote down, Agni consumed, O Indu, the Dasyus ere the noontide in the conflict.
rvs.4.28 4 Lower than all besides hast thou, O Indra, cast down the Dasyus, abject tribes of Dasas.
rvs.4.28 5 So, of a truth, Indra and Soma, Heroes, ye burst the stable of the kine and horses,
rvs.4.29 HYMN XXIX. Indra. 29
rvs.4.29 1. COME, lauded, unto us with powers and succours, O Indra, with thy Tawny Steeds; exulting,
rvs.4.29 May mighty Indra pouring forth in bounty bestow on us good roads and perfect safety;
rvs.4.29 5 O Indra Maghavan, by thee protected may we be thine, princes and priests and singers,
rvs.4.30 HYMN XXX. Indra. 30
rvs.4.30 3 Not even all the gathered Gods conquered thee, Indra, in the war,
rvs.4.30 5 When, fighting singly, Indra. thou overcamest all the furious Gods, thou slewest those who
rvs.4.30 6 When also for a mortal man, Indra, thou speddest forth the Sun,
rvs.4.30 8 And this heroic deed of might thou, Indra, also hast achieved,
rvs.4.30 9 Thou, Indra, Mighty One, didst crush Usas, though Daughter of the Sky.
rvs.4.30 12 Thou, Indra, didst. with magic power resist the overflowing stream
rvs.4.30 14 Thou, Indra, also smotest down Kulitaras' son Sambara,
rvs.4.30 16 So Indra, Lord of Heroes, Powers, caused the unwedded damsels' son,
rvs.4.30 17 So sapient Indra, Lord of Might, brought Turvasa and Yadu, those
rvs.4.30 18 Arna and Citraratha, both Aryas, thou, Indra, slewest swift,
rvs.4.30 20 For Divodasa, him who brought oblations, Indra overthrew
rvs.4.30 23 Indra, whatever deed of might thou hast this day to execute,
rvs.4.31 HYMN XXXI. Indra. 31
rvs.4.31 6 What time thy courage and his wheels together, Indra, run their course

rvs.4.31 14 Our chariot, Indra, boldly moves endued with splendour, Never repulsed,
rvs.4.32 HYMN XXXII. Indra. 32
rvs.4.32 1. O THOU who slewest Vrtra, come, O Indra, hither to our side,
rvs.4.32 4 O Indra, we are close to thee; to thee we sing aloud our songs:
rvs.4.32 6 May we be friends of one like thee, O Indra, with the wealth of kine,
rvs.4.32 7 For thou, O Indra, art alone the Lord of strength that comes from kine
rvs.4.32 Indra, for lively energy.
rvs.4.32 11 The sages sing those manly deeds which, Indra, Lover of the Song,
rvs.4.32 12 Indra, the Gotamas who bring thee praises have grown strong by thee.
rvs.4.32 13 For, Indra, verily thou art the general treasure even of all .
rvs.4.32 14 Excellent Indra, turn to us: glad thee among us with the juice
rvs.4.32 15 May praise from us who think Qn thee, O Indra, bring thee near to us.
rvs.4.32 Much, Indra, wilt thou fain bestow.
rvs.4.33 May Vaja, Vibhvan, Rbhu, joined with Indra , protect our sacrifice, the Somalovers-.
rvs.4.33 Indra,
rvs.4.34 1. To this our sacrifice come Rbhu, Vibhvan, Vaja, and Indra with the gift of riches,

rvs.4.34 Rejoice you with the Maruts and with Indra, with the Kings, Gods! that ye may give us riches.
rvs.4.35 With cunning, Rbhus, rich in treasure, fashioned the two swift Tawny Steeds who carry Indra.
rvs.4.35 Now drink thou with the wealthbestowing- Rbhus, whom for their skill thou madest friends, O Indra.
rvs.4.37 Ye Sons of Strength, ye progeny of Indra, to you the best is offered to delight you.
rvs.4.37 6 The mortal man whom, Rbhus, ye and Indra favour with your help,
rvs.4.37 8 O Vajas and Rbhuksans, ye Nasatyas, Indra, bless this wealth,
rvs.4.39 Varuna, Mitra, we invoke for welfare, and Agni, and the thunderwielding- Indra.
rvs.4.39 5 Both sides invoke him as they call on Indra when they stir forth and turn to sacrificing.
rvs.4.41 2 He who with dainty food hath won you, Indra and Varuna, Gods, as his allies to friendship,
rvs.4.41 3 Indra and Varuna are most liberal givers of treasure to the men who toil to serve them,
rvs.4.41 4 Indra and Varuna, ye hurl, O Mighty, on him your strongest flashing bolt of thunder
rvs.4.41 9 To Indra and to Varuna, desirous of gaining wealth have these my thoughts proceeded.
rvs.4.42 3 I Varuna am Indra: in their greatness, these the two wide deep fairlyfashioned- regions,
rvs.4.42 I Indra Maghavan, excite the conflict; I stir the dust, Lord of surpassing vigour.
rvs.4.42 For her they gained by sacrifice Trasadasyu, a demigod-, like Indra, conquering foemen.
rvs.4.43 3 So many days do ye come swiftly hither, as Indra to give help in stress of battle.
rvs.4.46 2 Come, teamdrawn-, with thy hundred helps, with Indra, seated in the car,
rvs.4.46 3 May steeds a thousand bring you both, Indra. and Vayu, hitherward

rvs.4.55 10 So then may Bhaga, Savitar, Varuna, Mitra, Aryaman, Indra, with bounty come to us.
rvs.4.57 7 May Indra press the furrow down, may Pusan guide its course aright.
rvs.4.58 Indra produced one shape, Surya another: by their own power they formed the third from Vena.
rvs.5.2 Indra who knoweth bent his eye upon thee: by him instructed am I come, O Agni.
rvs.5.3 In thee, O Son of Strength, all Gods are centred. Indra art thou to man who brings oblation.
rvs.5.5 3 Adored, O Agni, hither bring Indra the Wonderful, the Friend,
rvs.5.5 11 To Agni and to Varuna, Indra, the Maruts, and the Gods,

rvs.5.29 The Maruts gifted with pure strength adore thee, for thou, O Indra, art their sapient Rsi.
rvs.5.29 2 What time the Maruts sang their song to Indra, joyous when he had drunk of Soma juices,
rvs.5.29 3 And, O ye Brahmans, Maruts, so may Indra drink draughts of this my carefully pressed Soma;
rvs.5.29 For this oblation found for man the cattle, and Indra, having quaffed it, slew the Dragon.
rvs.5.29 So Indra forced the Engulfer to disgorgement, and slew the Danava. panting against him.
rvs.5.29 The Maruts, where they met, glorified Indra: ye with the Trstup hymn obstructed heaven.
rvs.5.29 And Indra, from mans' gift, for Vrtras' slaughter, drank ofr at once three lakes of pressedout-
rvs.5.29 All the Gods raised as it were a shout of triumph to Indra praise because he slew the Dragon.
rvs.5.29 9 What time ye came with strong steeds swiftly speeding, O Usana and Indra, to the dwelling,
rvs.5.29 12 Navagvas and Dasgvas with libations of Soma juice sing hymns of praise to Indra.
rvs.5.29 14 Resistless from of old through hero courage, thou hast done all these many acts, O Indra.
rvs.5.29 15 Indra, accept the prayers which now are offered, accept the new prayers, Mightiest! which we

rvs.5.30 1. WHERE is that Hero? Who hath looked on Indra borne on lightrolling- car by Tawny Coursers,
rvs.5.30 I asked of others, and they said in answer, May we, awakened men, attain to Indra.
rvs.5.30 3 We will tell, Indra, when we pour libation, what mighty deeds thou hast performed to please us.
rvs.5.30 4 Indra, when born, thou madest firm thy spirit: alone thou seekest war to fight with many.
rvs.5.30 Since then even Gods have been afraid of Indra: he conquered all the floods which served the Dasa.
rvs.5.30 Indra with wondrous powers subdued the Dragon, the guileful lurker who beset the waters.
rvs.5.30 8 Pounding the head of Namuci the Dasa, me, too thou madest thine associate, Indra!
rvs.5.30 Well he distinguished his two different voices, and Indra then advanced to fight the Dasyu.
rvs.5.30 These Indra reunited- with his helpers, what time the wellpressed- Soma made him joyful.
rvs.5.30 So Indra drank thereof, the Fortdestroyer-, and gave him guerdon, in return, of milchkine-.

rvs.5.31 The Brahmans with their songs exalting Indra increased his strength that he might slaughter Ahi.
rvs.5.31 5 When heroes sang their laud to thee the Hero, Indra! and stones and Aditi accordant,
rvs.5.31 Without or steed or chariot were the fellies which, sped by Indra, rolled upon the Dasytis.
rvs.5.31 8 Thou, Indra, on the farther bank forYadu and Turvaga didst stay the gushing waters.

rvs.5.32 HYMN XXXII. Indra. 32
rvs.5.32 Thou, Indra, laying the great mountain open, slaying the Danava, didst loose the torrents.
rvs.5.32 Strong Indra, thou by slaying even the Dragon that lay extended there hast shown thy vigour.
rvs.5.32 3 Indra with violence smote down the weapon,
rvs.5.32 Him, after loudvoiced- threats, the Hero Indra, rejoicing in the poured libation, slaughtered.
rvs.5.32 7 When gainst' the mighty Danava his weapon Indra uplifted, power which none could combat,
rvs.5.32 10 even the Celestial Axe bows down before him, and the Earth, loverlike-, gives way to Indra.
rvs.5.32 As such my wishes have most lately grasped him, invoking Indra both at eve and morning.
