MANDALA 3

HYMN LX. Rbhus. 60

1. HERE is your ghostly kinship, here, O Men: they came desirous to these holy rites with store of
wealth,
With wondrous arts, whereby, with schemes to meet each need, Ye gained, Sudhanvans' Sons! your
share in sacrifice.
2 The mighty powers wherewith. ye formed the chalices, the thought by which ye drew the cow from
out the hide,
The intellect wherewith ye wrought the two Bay Steeds, through these, O Rbhus, ye attained
divinity.
3 Friendship with Indra have the Rbhus, fully gained: grandsons of Manu, they skilfully urged the
work.
Sudhanvans' Children won them everlasting life, serving with holy rites, pious with noble acts.
4In: company with Indra come ye to the juice, then gloriously shall your wishes be fulfilled.
Not to be paragoned, ye Priests, are your good deeds, nor your heroic acts, Rbhus, Sudhanvans'
Sons.
5 O Indra, with the Rbhus, Mighty Ones, pour down the Soma juice effused, wellblent-, from both
thy hands.
Maghavan, urged by song, in the drinkofferers-' house rejoice thee with the Heroes, with
Sudhanvans' Sons.
6 With Rbhu near, and Vaja, Indra, here exult, with Saci, praised of many, in the juice we pour.
These homes wherein we dwell have turned themselves to thee, devotions- to the Gods, as laws of
men ordain.
7 Come with the mighty Rbhus, Indra, come to us, strengthening with thy help the singers' holy
praise;
At hundred eager calls come to the living man, with thousand arts attend the act of sacrifice.

HYMN LXI. Usas. 61

1. O Usas, strong with strength, endowed witli knowledge, accept the singers' praise, O wealthy
Lady.
Thou, Goddess, ancient, young, and full of wisdom, movest, allbounteous-! as the Law ordaineth.
2 Shine forth, O Morning, thou auspicious Goddess, on thy bright car awaking pleasant voices.
Let docile horses of farreaching- splendour convey thee hitherward, the goldencoloured.
3 Thou, Morning, turning thee to every creature, standest on high as ensign of the Immortal,
To one same goal ever and ever wending now, like a wheel, O newlyborn-, roll hi ther.
4 Letting her reins drop downward, Morning cometh, the wealthy Dame, the Lady of the dwelling;
Bringing forth light, the Wonderful, the Blessed hath spread her from the bounds of earth and
heaven.
5 Hither invoke the radiant Goddess Morning, and bring with reverence your hymn to praise her.
She, dropping sweets, hath set in heaven her brightness, and, fair to look on, hath beamed forth
her splendour.
6 From heaven, with hymns, the Holy One was wakened: brightly to both worlds came the wealthy Lady.
To Morning, Agni, when she comes refulgent, thou goest forth soliciting fair riches.
7 On Laws' firm base the speeder of the Mornings, the Bull, hath entered mighty earth and heaven.
Great is the power of Varuna and Mitra, which, bright, hath spread in every place its splendour.

HYMN LXII. Indra and Others. 62

1. YOUR wellknown- prompt activities aforetime needed no impulse from your faithful servant.
Where, IndraVaruna-, is now that glory wherewith ye brought support to those who loved you?
2 This man, most diligent, seeking after riches, incessantly invokes you for your favour.
Accordant, IndraVaruna-, with Maruts, with Heaven and Earth, hear ye mine invocation.
3 O IndraVaruna-, ours be this treasure ours be wealth, Maruts, with full store of heroes.
May the Varutris with their shelter aid us, and Bharati and Hotra with the Mornings.
4 Be pleased! with our oblations, thou loved of all Gods, Brhaspati:
Give wealth to him who brings thee gifts.
5 At sacrifices, with your hymns worship the pure Brhaspati;
I pray for power which none may bend;
6 The Bull of men, whom none deceive, the wearer of each shape at will,
Brhaspati Most Excellent.
7 Divine, resplendent Pusan, this our newest hymn of eulogy,
By us is chanted forth to thee.
8 Accept with favour this my song, be gracious to the earnest thought,
Even as a bridegroom to his bride.
9 May he who sees all living things, see, them together at a glance,
May he, may Pusan be our help.
10 May we attain that excellent glory of Savitar the God:
So May he stimulate our prayers.
11 With understanding, earnestly, of Savitar the God we crave
Our portion of prosperity.
12 Men, singers worship Savitar the God with hymn and holy rites,
Urged by the impulse of their thoughts.
13 Soma who gives success goes forth, goes to the gathering place of Gods,
To seat him at the seat of Law.
14 To us and to our cattle may Soma give salutary food,
To biped and to quadruped.
15 May Soma, strengthening our power of life, and conquering our foes,
In our assembly take his seat.
16 May MitraVaruna-, sapient Pair, bedew our pasturage with oil,
With meatb the regions of the air.
17 Farruling-, joyful when adored, ye reign through majesty of might,
With pure laws everlastingly.
18 Lauded by Jamadagnis' song, sit in the place of holy Law:
