ATHARVA VEDA

BOOK VI (6)

HYMN C (100)

A charm against poison

[0610001] The Gods and Surya gave the gift, the Earth and Heaven best owed the boon.
The three Sarasvatis in full accord bestowed the antidote.

[0610002] That water, Upajikas! which Gods poured for you on thirsty land, With that same water sent by Gods, drive ye away this poison here. [p. a247]

[0609803] The daughter of the Asuras art thou, and sister of the Gods.
Thou who hast sprung from heaven and earth hast robbed the poison of its power.

HYMN CI (101)

A charm to promote virile vigour

[0610101] Taurum age, palpita, incresce et teipsum extende: per totum membrum increscat penis: hoc tu caede feminam.

[0610102] Quo debilem stimulant, quo aegrum excitant (homines), hoc, O Brahmanaspatis Brahmanaspati(), hujus penem in arcus modum extende.

[0610103] Velut nervum in arcu ego tuum fascinum extendo.
Aggredere (mulierem) semper indefessus velut cervus damam.

HYMN CII (102)

A man s love charm

[0610201] Even as this ox, O Asvins, steps and turns together with his mate, So let thy fancy turn itself, come nearer, and unite with me.

[0610202] I, as the shaft horse draws the mare beside him, draw thee to myself.
Like grass that storm and wind have rent, so be thy mind at tached to me!

[0610203] Swiftly from Bhaga s hands I bear away a love compelling charm Of ointment and of sugar cane, of Spikenard and the Kushtha plant.

[p. a248]

HYMN CIII (103)

A charm to check the approach of a hostile army

[0610301] Brihaspati and Savitar prepare a rope to bind you fast! Let Bhaga, Mitra, Aryaman, and both the Asvins make the bond.

[0610302] I bind together all of them, the first, the last, the middlemost.
Indra hath girded these with cord: bind them together, Agni, thou!

[0610303] Those yonder who approach to fight, with banners raised along their ranks, Indra hath girded these with cord: bind them together, Agni, thou!

HYMN CIV (104)

The same

[0610401] We bind our foemen with a bond that binds them close and holds them fast.
Their breath and respiration I dissever, and their lives from life.

[0610402] This bond, made keen by Indra, I have formed with heat of holy zeal.
Securely bind our enemies, O Agni, who are standing here.

[0610403] Indra and Agni bind them fast, Soma the King, and both the Friends! May Indra, girt by Maruts, make a bond to bind our enemies.

[p. a249]

HYMN CV (105)

A charm to cure cough

[0610501] Rapidly as the fancy flies forth with conceptions of the mind.
So following the fancy s flight, O Cough, flee rapidly away.

[0610502] Rapidly as an arrow flies away with keenly sharpened point, So swiftly flee away, O Cough, over the region of the earth!

[0610503] Rapidly as the beams of light, the rays of Surya, fly away, So, Cough! fly rapidly away over the current of the sea!

HYMN CVI (106)

A charm to protect a house from fire

[0610601] Let flowery Durva grass grow up about thine exit and approach.
There let a spring of water rise, or lake with blooming lotuses.

[0610602] This is the place where waters meet, here is the gathering of the flood.
Our home is set amid the lake: turn thou thy jaws away from it.

[0610603] O House, we compass thee about with coolness to envelop thee.
Cool as a lake be thou to us.
Let Agni bring us healing balm!

HYMN CVII (107)

A charm to protect men and cattle

[0610701] Entrust me, Visvajit, to Trayamana.
Guard, Trayamana, all our men, guard all our wealth of quadrupeds.

[0610702] To Visvajit entrust me, Trayamana.
O Visvajit, guard all our men, etc.

[0610703] To Visvajit entrust me, O Kalyani.
Guard, O Kalyani, all our men, etc. [p. a250]

[0610704] To Sarvavid entrust me, O Kalyani.
O Sarvavid, guard all our men, guard all our wealth of quadrupeds.

HYMN CVIII (108)

A prayer for wisdom

[0610801] Intelligence, come first to us with store of horses and of kine! Thou with the rays of Surya art our worshipful and holy one.

[0610802] The first, devout Intelligence, lauded by sages, sped by prayer, Drunk by Brahmacharis, for the favour of the Gods I call.

[0610803] That excellent Intelligence which Ribhus know, and Asuras, Intelligence which sages know, we cause to enter into me.

[0610804] Do thou, O Agni, make me wise this day with that Intelligence.
Which the creative ishis, which the men endowed with wisdom knew.

[0610805] Intelligence at eve, at morn, Intelligence at noon of day, With the Sun s beams, and by our speech we plant in us Intelligence.

HYMN CIX (109)

A charm to heal punctured wounds

[0610901] The Berry heals the missile s rent, it heals the deeply piercing wound.
The Gods prepared and fashioned it.
This hath sufficient power for life.

[0610902] When from their origin they came, the Berries spake among themselves: The man whom we shall find alive shall never suffer injury. [p. a251]

[0610903] Asuras buried thee in earth: the Gods again uplifted thee.
Healer of sickness caused by wounds and healer of the missile s rent.
