HYMN CXXXIII (133)

A glorification of the sacred girdle

[0613301] By the direction of that God we journey, he will seek means to save and he will free us; The God who hath engirt us with this Girdle, he who hath fast ened it, and made us ready.

[0613302] Thou, weapon of the Rishis, art adored and served with sacrifice.
First tasting of the votive milk, Zone, be a hero slayer thou!

[0613303] As I am now Death s Brahmachari claiming out of the living world a man for Yama, So with Austerity and Prayer and Fervour I bind this Girdle round the man before me.

[0613304] She hath become, Faith s daughter, sprung from Fervour, the sister of the world creating Rishis; As such, O Girdle, give us thought and wisdom, give us religious zeal and mental vigour.

[0613305] Thou whom primeval Rishis girt about them, they who made the world, As such do thou encircle me, O Girdle, for long days of life.

[0613401] This Thunderbolt shall take its fill of Order, scare life away and overthrow the kingdom.
Tear necks in pieces.
rend napes asunder, even as the Lord of Might the neck of Vritra.

[0613402] Down, down beneath the conquerors, let him not rise, concealed in earth, but lie down smitten with the bolt.

[0613403] Seek out the fierce oppressor, yea, strike only the oppressor dead. [p. a265] Down on the fierce oppressor s head strike at full length, O Thunderbolt!

HYMN CXXXV (135)

A priest s fulmination against an enemy

[0613501] Whatever I eat I turn to strength, and thus I grasp the Thunder bolt, Rending the shoulders of that man as Indra shattered Vritra s neck.

[0613502] I drink together what I drink, even as the sea that swallows all.
Drinking the life breath of that man, we drink that man and swallow him.

[0613503] Whatever I eat I swallow up, even as the sea that swallows all.
Swallowing that man s vital breath, we swallow him completely up.

HYMN CXXXVI (136)

A charm to promote the growth of hair

[0613601] Born from the bosom of wide Earth the Goddess, godlike Plant, art thou: So we, Nitatni! dig thee up to strengthen and fix fast the hair.

[0613602] Make the old firm, make new hair spring, lengthen what has already grown.

[0613603] Thy hair where it is falling off, and with the roots is torn away, I wet and sprinkle with the Plant, the remedy for all disease.

[p. a266]

HYMN CXXXVII (137)

grow long, This same hath Vitahavya brought to us from Asita s abode.

[0613702] They might be measured with a rein, meted with both extended arms.
Let the black locks spring thick and strong and grow like reeds upon thy head.

[0613703] Strengthen the roots, prolong the points, lengthen the middle part, O Plant.
Let the black locks spring thick and strong and grow like reeds upon thy head.

HYMN CXXXVIII (138)

A woman s imprecation on her unfaithful lover

[0613801] O Plant, thy fame is spread abroad as best of all the herbs that grow.
Unman for me to day this man that he may wear the horn of hair.

[0613802] Make him a eunuch with a horn, set thou the crest upon his head.
Let Indra with two pressing stones deprive him of his manly strength.

[0613803] I have unmanned thee, eunuch! yea, impotent! made thee impotent, and robbed thee, weakling! of thy strength.
Upon his head we set the horn, we set the branching ornament.

[0613804] Duas tuas venas, a Diis factas, in quibus stat vigor virilis, paxillo ligneo in testiculis ob istam mulierem tibi findo.

[0613805] Ut mulieres mattam (tegetem) facturae arundinem lapide findunt, sic fascinum tuum cum testiculis ob istam mulierem findo.

[p. a267]

HYMN CXXXIX (139)

A woman s love charm

[0613901] Thou hast grown up, a source of joy to bless me with pros perity.
A hundred are thy tendrils, three and thirty thy descending shoots.
With this that bears a thousand leaves I dry thy heart and wither it.

[0613902] Let thy heart wither for my love and let thy month be dry for me.
Parch and dry up with longing, go with lips that love of me hath dried.

[0613903] Drive us together, tawny! fair! a go between who wakens love.
Drive us together, him and me, and give us both one heart and mind.

[0613904] Even as his mouth is parched who finds no water for his burn ing thirst, So parch and burn with longing, go with lips that love of me hath dried.

[0613905] Even as the Mungoose bites and rends and then restores the wounded snake, So do thou, Mighty one, restore the fracture of our severed love.
