BOOK III (3)
HYMN XXIX (30)
On the means to obtain immunity from taxation in the next world
 Freedom from hate I bring to you, concord and unanimity.
Love one another as the cow loveth the calf that she hath borne.
 One minded with his mother let the son be loyal to his sire.
Let the wife, calm and gentle, speak words sweet as honey to her lord.
 No brother hate his brother, no sister to sister be unkind.
Unanimous, with one intent, speak ye your speech in friend liness.
 That spell through which Gods sever not, nor ever bear each other hate, That spell we lay upon your home, a bond of union for the men.
 Intelligent, submissive, rest united, friendly and kind, bearing the yoke together.
Come, speaking sweetly each one to the other.
I make you one intentioned and one minded. [p. a102]
 Let what you drink, your share of food be common together, with one common bond I bid you. Serve Agni, gathered round him like the spokes about the chariot nave.
 With binding charm I make you all united, obeying one sole leader and one minded.
Even as the Gods who watch and guard the Amrit, at morn and eve may ye be kindly hearted.
