ATHARVA VEDA

BOOK VII (7)

HYMN I (1)

Glorification of the power of prayer and to Agni

[0700101] They who by thought have guided all that Speech hath best, or they who with their heart have uttered words of truth, Made stronger by the strength which the third prayer bestows, have by the fourth prayer learned the nature of the Cow.

[0700102] Well knows this son his sire, he knows his mother well: he hath been son, and he hath been illiberal.
He hath encompassed heaven, and air s mid realm, and sky; he hath become this All; he hath come nigh to us.

HYMN II (2)

Praise of Atharvan

[0700201] Invoke for us, proclaim in sundry places, the kinsman of the Gods, our sire Atharvan, His mother s germ, his father s breath, the youthful, who with his mind hath noticed this oblation.

HYMN IV (3)

To Vayu God of the Wind

[0700401] With thine eleven teams, to aid our wishes, yea, with thy two and twenty teams, O Vayu, With all thy three and thirty teams for drawing, here loose these teams, thou who art prompt to listen!

HYMN IV (4)

To Vayu God of the Wind

[0700401] With thine eleven teams, to aid our wishes, yea, with thy two and twenty teams, O Vayu, With all thy three and thirty teams for drawing, here loose these teams, thou who art prompt to listen!

HYMN V (5)

A glorification of sacrifice

[0700501] The Gods adored the Sacrifice with worship: these were the statutes of primeval ages.
Those mighty ones attained the cope of heaven, there where the Sadhyas, Gods of old, are dwelling.

[0700502] Sacrifice was, was manifest among us: it sprang to life and then in time grew stronger.
Then it became thedeities lord and ruler: may it bestow on us abundant riches.

[0700503] Where the Gods worshipped Gods with their oblation, worship ped immortals with immortal spirit, [p. a272] There in the loftiest heaven may we be happy, and look upon that light when Surya rises.

[0700504] With their oblation, Purusha, the Gods performed a sacrifice.
A sacrifice more potent still they paid with the invoking hymn.

[0700505] With dog the Gods, perplexed, have paid oblation, and with cow s limbs in sundry sacrifices.
Invoke for us, in many a place declare him who with his mind.
hath noticed this our worship.

HYMN VI (6)

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 VII (7)

Praise of the Adityas

[0700701] I have sung praise to Diti s sons and Aditi s, those very lofty and invulnerable Gods.
For far within the depths of ocean is their home and in the wor ship paid them none excelleth these.

HYMN VIII (8)

Godspeed to a departing traveller

[0700801] Go forward on thy way from good to better: Brihaspati pre cede thy steps and guide thee! [p. a274] Place this man here, within this earth s enclosure, afar from foes with all his men about him.

HYMN IX (9)

A prayer to Pushan for protection and the recovery of lost property

[0700901] Pushan was born to move on distant pathways, on roads remote from earth, remote from heaven.
To both most lovely places of assembly he travels and returns with perfect knowledge.

[0700902] Pushan knows all these realms: may he conduct us by ways that are most free from fear and danger.
Giver of blessings, glowing, all heroic, may he the wise and watchful go before us.

[0700903] We are thy praisers here, O Pushan: never let us be injured under thy protection.

[0700904] From out the distance, far and wide, may Pushan stretch his right hand forth.
Let him drive back our lost to us, let us return with what is lost.
