HYMN II (2)

In praise of Indra

[0600201] For Indra, ministering priests! run ye and press the Soma juice, That he may hear his praiser s word, and this my call.

[0600202] Thou into whom the drops find way as sap pours life into a tree, Drive off in thine abundant might our demon foes.

[0600203] For Indra, thunder armed, who drinks the Soma press the Soma out: He, youthful, conqueror, and Lord is praised by all.

HYMN III (3)

[0600301] Guard us the Maruts! Guard us well, O Indra, Pushan, Aditi.
Guard us, O Waters Child, and Rivers Seven.
May Vishnu guard us, and the Sky. [p. a200]

[0600302] May Heaven and Earth take care of us for victory, may Pressing Stone and Soma save us from distress.
Sarasvati, auspicious Goddess, guard us well: preserve us Agni and his kind protecting powers.

[0600303] Preserve us both the Asvins, Gods and Lords of Light, and let the Dawns and Night bring us deliverance.
The Waters Child protect our house from every harm.
Do thou, God Tvashtar, make us strong for health and wealth.

HYMN IV (4)

[0600401] May Tvashtar, Brahmanaspati, Parjanya hear my holy prayer.
May Aditi with all her sons, the brothers, guard us, invincible, protecting power.

[0600402] May Ansa, Bhaga, Varuna, and Mitra, Aryaman, Aditi, and Maruts guard us.
May we be freed from that oppressor s hatred.
May he keep off that foeman who is near us.

[0600403] May both the Asvins further our devotion.
With ceaseless care deliver us, Wide Ranger! O Father Heaven, keep from us all misfortunes.

HYMN V (5)

A prayer to Agni and Indra for the well being of a princely patron

[0600501] Agni, adored with sacred oil, lift up this man to high estate.
Endow him with full store of strength and make him rich in progeny.
[0600502] Advance him, Indra! Let him be ruler of all akin to him. [p. a201] Grant him sufficiency of wealth: guide him to life and length of days.

[0600503] Prosper this man, O Agni, in whose house we offer sacrifice.
May Soma bless him, and the God here present, Brahmanaspati.

HYMN VI (6)

A prayer to Brahmanaspati for protection from wicked men

[0600601] The godless man whoever plots against us, Brahmanaspati, Thou shalt give up as prey to me the worshipper who pour the juice.

[0600602] If, Soma, any spiteful man hath aimed at us whose thoughts are kind, Smite with thy bolt upon his face: he, crushed to pieces, vani sheth.

[0600603] Soma, whoever troubleth us, be he a stranger or akin, Deprive him of the strength he hath: slay him thy self like mighty Dyaus!

HYMN VI (7)

A prayer to Aditi for help and protection

[0700601] Aditi is sky, and air s mid region, Aditi is the father, son, and mother, Aditi all the Gods and the Five Nations, Aditi what is now and what is future.

[0700602] We call for help the Queen of Law and Order, great mother of all those whose ways are righteous, Far spread, unwasting strong in her dominion, Aditi wisely lead ing, well protecting. [p. a273]

[0700603] Sinless may we ascend, for weal, the vessel, rowed with good oars, divine, that never leaketh, Earth, our strong guard, incomparable Heaven, Aditi wisely lead ing, well protecting.

[0700604] Let us bring hither, in pursuit of riches, Aditi with our word, the mighty mother, Her in whose lap the spacious air is lying: may she afford us triply guarding shelter!

HYMN VIII (8)

A man s love charm

[0600801] Like as the creeper throws, her arms on every side around the tree, So hold thou me in thine embrace that thou mayst be in love with me, my darling, never to depart.

[0600802] As, when he mounts, the eagle strikes his pinions downward on the earth, So do I strike thy spirit down that thou mayst be in love with me, my darling, never to depart.

[0600803] As in his rapid course the Sun encompasses the heaven and: earth, So do I compass round thy mind that thou mayst be in love with.
me, my darling, never to depart.

HYMN IX (9)

A man s love charm

[0600901] Desire my body, love my feet, love thou mine eyes, and love my legs.
Let both thine eyes and hair, fond girl! be dried and parched.
through love of me.

[0600902] I make thee hang upon mine arm, I make thee lie upon my heart.
Thou yieldest to my wish, that thou mayst be submissive to my will.

[0600903] May they whose kisses are a bond, a love charm laid within the heart, Mothers of butter, may the cows incline that maid to love of me.

[p. a203]
