ATHARVA VEDA

BOOK VII (7)

HYMN XC (90)

A charm against a rival in love

[0709001] Tear thou asunder, as of old, like tangles of a creeping plant.
Demolish thou the Dasa s might.

[0709002] May we with Indra s help divide the gathered treasure of the foe.
I, by the law of Varuna, bring down thy pride and wantonness.

[0709003] Ut virga abeat et feminis innocua fiat, (virga) membri humidi, membri quod verberat penetratque, id quod tentum est laxa, id quod sursum tentum est deorsum tende.

HYMN XCI (91)

A Prayer for protection

[0709101] May Indra with his help, Lord of all treasures, be unto us a careful protector.
Drive off our foes and give us peace and safety.
May we be lords of goodly store of heroes.

[p. a312]

HYMN XCII (92)

A Prayer for protection

[0709201] May this rich Indra as our good protector keep even far away the men who hate us.
May we enjoy his favour, his the holy: may we enjoy his blessed loving kindness.

HYMN XCIII (93)

A prayer for success in battle

[0709301] With Indra s and with Manyu s aid may we subdue our enemies, resistlessly destroying foes.

HYMN XCIV (94)

A charm to ensure the obedience of subjects

[0709401] We laid the constant Soma on with constant sacrificial gift, That Indra may make all the tribes unanimous and only ours.

HYMN XCV (95)

An incantation against an undetected thief

[0709501] To heaven, as it were, have soared this man s two vultures, staggering, dusky hued.
The Parcher and the Drier up, the pair who parch and dry his heart.

[0709502] I verily have stirred them up like oxen resting after toil.
Like two loud snarling curs, or like two wolves who watch to make their spring:

[0709503] Like two that thrust, like two that pierce, like two that strike with mutual blows.
I bind the conduit of the man or dame who hence hath taken aught.

[p. a313]

HYMN XCVI (96)

An incantation against an undetected thief

[0709601] The kine are resting in the stall, home to her nest hath flown the bird, The hills are firmly rooted: I have fixed the kidneys in their place.

HYMN XCVII (97)

Sacrificial formulas

[0709701] As we have here elected thee, skilled Hotar! to day as this our sacrifice proceedeth, Come to the firm place, mightiest! yea, come firmly.
Knowing the sacrifice, approach the Soma.

[0709702] With kine connect us, and with spirit, Indra! Lord of Bay Steeds, with princes and with favour, With the God destined portion of the Brahmans, and the good will of Gods who merit worship.

[0709703] The willing Gods whom, God, thou hast brought hither, send thou to their own dwelling place, O Agni.
When ye have eaten and have drunk sweet juices, endow this man with precious wealth, ye Vasus.

[0709704] Gods, we have made your seats of easy access, who, pleased with me, have come to my libation.
Bearing and bringing hitherward your treasures, after the rich warm beverage mount to heaven.

[0709705] Go to the sacrifiee, go to its master, Sacrifice! To thy birth place go with Svaha. [p. a314]

[0709706] This is thy sacrifice with holehymnal, Lord of the Rite, Svaha! and fraught with vigour.

[0709707] Vashat to paid and yet unpaid oblations! Ye Gods who know the way, find and pursue it!

[0709708] Lord of the Mind, lay this our sacrifice in heaven among the Gods.
Svaha in heaven! Svaha on earth! Svaha in air! In wind have I paid offerings.
Hail!

HYMN XCVIII (98)

Anointing the sacred grass

[0709801] Balmed is the Grass with butter and libation, with Indra.
gracious Lord, and with the Maruts.
Hail! let the sacrifice go forth anointed to Indra with the Gods and Visve Devas.

HYMN XCIX (99)

The preparation of the altar

[0709901] Strew thou the Grass, and spread it on the Altar: rob not the sister who is lying yonder.
The Hotar s seat is green and golden: these are gold necklets.
in the plaee of him who worships.

[p. a315]
