HYMN XXX (30)

A charm to restore life and health

[0503001] From thy vicinity I call, from near, from far, from night at hand.
Stay here: depart not: follow not the Fathers of the olden time.
I bind thy vital spirit fast.

[0503002] If any man, a stranger or akin, hath cast a spell on thee, I with my voice to thee declare thy freedom and release there from.

[0503003] If in thy folly thou hast lied or cursed a woman or a man, I with my voice declare to thee thy freedom and release there from. [p. a195]

[0503004] If thou art lying there because of mother s or of father s sin, I with my voice declare to thee thy freedom and release there from.

[0503005] Accept the healing medicine, the balm thy mother and thy sire, Thy sister and thy brother bring.
I make thee live through lengthened years.

[050306] O man, stay here among us; stay with all thy spirit: follow not Yama s two messengers.
Approach the castles where the living dwell.

[0503007] Come back as thou art called to come, knowing the outlet of the path, And the Approach and its ascent, the way of every living man.

[0503008] Be not alarmed: thou wilt not die.
I give thee lengthened years of life.
Forth from thy members have I charmed Decline that caused the fever there.

[0503009] Gone is the pain that racked thee, gone thy fever, gone thy heart s disease.
Consumption, conquered by my voice, hath, like a hawk, fled far away.

[0503010] Two sages, Sense and Vigilance, the sleepless and the watchful one, These, the protectors of thy life, shall be awake both day and night.

[0503011] This Agni must be waited on.
Here let the Sun mount up for thee.
Rise from deep death and come away, yea, from black darkness rise thou up!

[0503012] Homage be paid to Yama, to Mrityu, and to the Fathers, and to those who guide us! I honour first, for this man s preservation, that Agni who well knoweth how to save him.

[0503013] Let breath and mind return to him, let sight and vigour come again Let all his body be restored and firmly stand upon its feet.

[0503014] Provide this man with breath and sight, O Agni, and with his body and his strength unite him.
Thou knowest Amrit: let him not go hence, nor dwell in house of clay.
[0503015] Let not thine inward breathing fail, let not thine outward breath [p. a196] be lost.
Let Surya who is Lord Supreme raise thee from death with beams of light.

[0503016] Tied, tremulously moving, here the tongue is speaking in the mouth.
With thee I charmed Decline away and Fever s hundred ago nies.

[0503017] This living world, unconquered of the Gods, is most beloved of all.
To whatsoever death thou wast destined when thou wast born,.
O man, This death and we call after thee.
Die not before decrepit age!

HYMN XXXI (31)

A counter charm against the incantations of an enemy

[0503101] The spell that they have cast for thee on unbaked dish or ming led meal, [p. a197] The witchcraft wrought on undressed meat, this I strike back again on them.

[0503104] The secret spell upon thy plants Amula or Narachi, spell That they have cast upon thy field, this I strike back again on them.

[0503105] The spell that wicked men have cast on thine original household fire, And on thy sacrificial hall, this I strike back again on them.

[0503110] He brought this by no proper path, by the right path we drive it back.
The fool in folly brought it to those who observe established bounds.

[0503111] No power had he who wrought the spell: he hurt his foot, he broke his toe.
Unlucky for his wealthy lords, he hath wrought happiness for us.

[0503112] May Indra slay with mighty bolt, may Agni with his missible pierce. [p. a198] The sorcerer who brings the curse, who deals with roots and secret spells.
