ATHARVA VEDA

BOOK VII (7)

HYMN XX (20)

A prayer for prosperity and happiness

[0702001] Anumati approve to day our sacrifice among the Gods! May Agni bear mine offerings away for me the worshipper.

[0702002] Do thou, Anumati! approve, and grant us health and happiness.
Accept the offered sacrifice, and, Goddess, give us progeny. [p. a279]

[0702003] May he approving in return accord us wealth inexhaustible with store of children.
Never may we be subject to his anger, but rest in his benevo lence and mercy.

[0702004] Thy name is easy to invoke, good leader! approved, Anumati and rich in bounty.
Source of all bonds! fill up therewith our worship, and, Blest One! grant us wealth with goodly heroes.

[0702005] Anumati hath come to this our worship well formed to give good lands and valiant heroes: For her kind care hath blessed us.
God protected, may she assist the sacrifice we offer.

[0702006] Anumati became this All, whatever standeth or walketh, every thing that moveth.
May we enjoy thy gracious love, O Goddess.
Regard us, O Anumati, with favour.

HYMN XXI (21)

A funeral stanza

[0702101] With prayer come all together to the Lord of Heaven: he is the peerless one, far reaching, guest of men.
He, God of ancient time, hath gained a recent thrall; to him alone is turned the path which all must tread.

HYMN XXII (22)

To Savitar, or Yama invested with Savitar s attributes

[0702201] Unto a thousand sages he hath given sight: thought, light is he in ranging all.

[0702202] The Bright One hath sent forth the Dawns, a closely gathered band, Immaculate, unanimous, brightly refulgent in their homes.

[p. a280]

HYMN XXIII (23)

A charm to banish fiends and troubles

[0702301] The fearful dream, and indigence, the monster, the malignant hags.
All female fiends of evil name and wicked tongue we drive afar.

HYMN XXIV (24)

A prayer for riches

[0702401] What treasure hath been dug for us by Indra, by Agni, Visve devas, tuneful Maruts, On us may Savitar whose laws are faithful, Prajapati, and Heavenly Grace bestow it.

HYMN XXV (25)

Praise of Vishnu and Varuna

[0702501] The early morning prayer hath come to Vishnu and Varuna, Lords through might, whom none hath equalled, Gods by whose power the realms of air were stablished, strongest and most heroic in their vigour.

[0702502] The early prayer hath ever come to Vishnu and Varuna by that God s high power and statute.
In whose control is all this world that shineth, all that hath powers to see and all that breatheth.

HYMN XXVI (26)

Praise of Vishnu

[0702601] I will declare the mighty deeds of Vishnu, of him who measured out the earthly regions, [p. a281] Who propped the highest place of congregation, thrice setting down his footstep, widely striding.

[0702602] Loud boast doth Vishnu make of this achievement, like some wild beast, dread, prowling, mountain roaming.
May he approach us from the farthest distance.

[0702603] Thou within whose three wide extended paces all worlds and creatures have their habitation, Drink oil, thou homed in oil! promote the sacrificer more and more.

[0702604] Through all this world strode Vishnu: thrice his foot he planted, and the whole Was gathered in his footstep s dust.

[0702605] Vishnu the guardian, he whom none deceiveth, made three steps, thenceforth.
Establishing these high decrees.

[0702606] Look ye on Vishnu s works, whereby the friend of Indra, close allied, Hath let his holy ways be seen.

[0702607] The princes evermore behold that loftiest place where Vishnu is, Like an extended eye in heaven,

[0702608] From heaven, O Vishnu, or from earth, O Vishnu, or from the great far spreading air s mid region, Fill both thy hands full of abundant treasures, and from the right and left bestow them freely.

[p. a282]

HYMN XXVII (27)

A prayer to Ida, Goddess of devotion

[0702701] May Ida with her statute dwell beside us, she in whose place the pious purge and cleanse them.
She, mighty, Soma decked, whose foot drops fatness, meet for All Gods, hath come to aid our worship.

HYMN XXVIII (28)

Praise of the sacrificial utensils

[0702801] Blest be the Broom, may the Mace bring a blessing, and may the Altar and the Hatchet bless us.
Worshipful Gods, may they accept this worship, lovers of sacri fice, and sacrificers.

HYMN XXIX (29)

To Agni and Vishnu

[0702901] This is your glorious might, Agni and Vishnu! Ye drink the essence of the mystic butter.
Placing in every home seven costly treasures.
Let your tongue stretch to take the offered fatness.

[0702902] Ye love the great law, Agni Vishnu! joying, ye feast on mystic essences of butter, Exalted in each house with fair laudation.
Let your tongue stretch to take the offered fatness.
