MANDALA 7

HYMN LXXX. Dawn. 80

1 THE priests, Vasisthas, are the first awakened to welcome Usas with their songs and praises,
Who makes surrounding regions part asunderand, shows apparent all existing creatures.
2 Giving fresh life when she hath hid the darkness, this Dawn hath wakened there with newborn-
lustre.
Youthful and unrestrained she cometh forward: she hath turned thoughts to Sun and fire and worship.
3 May blessed Mornings shine on us for ever, with wealth of kine, of horses, and of heroes,
Streaming with all abundance, pouring fatness. Preserve us evermore, ye Gods, with blessings.

HYMN LXXXI. Dawn. 81

1. ADVANCING, sending forth her rays, the Daughter of the Sky is seen.
Uncovering, that we may see, the mighty gloom, the friendly Lady makes the light.
2 The Sun ascending, the refulgent Star, pours down his beams together with the Dawn.
O Dawn, at thine arising, and the Suns', may we attain the share allotted us.
3 Promptly we woke to welcome thee, O Usas, Daughter of the Sky,
Thee, Bounteous One, who bringest all we long to have, and to the offerer health and wealth.
4 Thou, dawning, workest fain to light the great world, yea, heaven, Goddess! that it may be seen.
We yearn to be thine own, Dealer of Wealth: may we be to this Mother like her sons.
5 Bring us that wondrous bounty, Dawn, that shall be famed most far away.
What, Child of Heaven, thou hast of nourishment for man, bestow thou on us to enjoy.
6 Give to our princes opulence and immortal fame, and strength in herds of kine to us.
May she who prompts the wealthy, Lady of sweet strains, may Usas dawn our foes away.

HYMN LXXXIT. IndraVaruna- 82

1. GRANT us your strong protection, IndraVaruna, our people, and our family, for sacrifice.
May we subdue in fight our evilhearted- foes, him who attacks the man steadfast in lengthened
rites.
2 O IndraVaruna-, mighty and very rich One of you is called Monarch and One Autocrat.
All Gods in the most lofty region of the air have, O ye Steers, combined all power and might in
you.
3 Ye with your strength have pierced the fountains of the floods: the Sun have ye brought forward
as the Lord in heaven.
Cheered by this magic draught ye, IndraVaruna-, made the dry places stream, made songs of praise
flow forth.
4 In battels and in frays we ministering priests, kneeling upon our knees for furtherance of our
weal,
Invoke you, only you, the Lords of twofold wealth, you prompt to hear, we bards, O IndraVaruna-.
5 O IndraVaruna-, as ye created all these creatures of the world by your surpassing might,
In peace and quiet Mitra waits on Varuna, the Other, awful, with the Maruis seeks renown.
6 That Varunas' high worth may shine preeminent, these Twain have measured each his proper power
and might.
The One subdueth the destructive enemy; the Other with a few furthereth many a man.
7 No trouble, no misfortune, IndraVaruna-, no woe from any side assails the mortal man
Whose sacrifice, O Gods, ye visit and enjoy: Never doth the crafty guile of mortal injure him.
8 With your divine protection, Heroes, come to us: mine invncation hear, if ye be pleased
therewith.
Bestow ye upon us, O IndraVaruna-, your friendship and your kinship and your favouring grace.
9 In battle after battle, IndraVaruna-, be ye our Champions, ye who are the peoples' strength,
When both opposing bands invoke you for the fight, and men that they may gain offspring and
progeny.
10 May Indra, Varuna, Mitra, and Aryaman vouchsafe us glory and great shelter spreading far.
We think of the beneficent light of Aditi, and Savitars' song of praise, the God who strengthens
Law.

HYMN LXXXIII. IndraVaruna-. 83

1. LOOKING to you and your alliance, O ye Men, armed with broad axes they went forward, fain for
spoil.
Ye smote and slew his Dasa and his Aryan enemies, and helped Sudas with favour, IndraVaruna-.
2 Where heroes come together with their banners raised, in the encounter where is naught for us to
love,
Where all things that behold the light are terrified, there did ye comfort us, O IndraVaruna-.
3 The boundaries of earth were seen all dark with dust: O IndraVaruna-, the shout went up to
heaven.
The enmities of the people compassed me about. Ye heard my calling and ye came to me with help.
4 With your resistless weapons, IndraVaruna-, ye conquered Bheda and ye gave Sudas your aid.
Ye heard the prayers of these amid the cries of war: effectual was the service of the Trtsus'
priest.
5 O IndraVaruna-, the wickedness of foes and mine assailants' hatred sorely trouble me.
Ye Twain are Lords of riches both of earth and heaven: so grant to us your aid on the decisive day.
6 The men of both the hosts invoked you in the fight, Indra and Varuna, that they might win the
wealth,
What time ye helped Sudas, with all the Trtsu folk, when the Ten Kings had pressed him down in
their attack.
7 Ten Kings who worshipped not, O IndraVaruna-, confederate, in war prevailed not over Sudas.
True was the boast of heroes sitting at the feast: so at their invocations Gods were on their side.
8 O IndraVaruna-, ye gave Sudas your aid when the Ten Kings in battle compassed him about,
There where the whiterobed- Trtsus with their braided hair, skilled in song worshipped you with
homage and with hymn.
9 One of you Twain destroys the Vrtras in the fight, the Other evermore maintains his holy Laws.
We call on you, ye Mighty, with our hymns of praise. Vouchsafe us your protection, IndraVaruna-.
10 May Indra, Varuna, Mitra, and Aryaman vouchsafe us glory and great shelter spreading far.
We think of the beneficent light of Aditi, and Savitars' song of praise, the God who strengthens
Law.

HYMN LXXXIV. IndraVaruna-. 84

1. KINGS, IndraVaruna-, I would turn you hither to this our sacrifice with gifts and homage.
Held in both arms the ladle, dropping fatness, goes of itself to you whose forms are varied.
2 Dyaus quickens and promotes your high dominion who bind with bonds not wrought of rope or
cordage.
Far from us still be Varunas' displeasure may Indra give us spacious room to dwell in.
3 Make ye our sacrifice fair amid the assemblies: make ye our prayers approved among our princes.
May Godsent- riches come for our possession: further ye us with your delightful succours.
4 O IndraVaruna-, vouchsafe us riches with store of treasure, food, and every blessing;
For the Aditya, banisher of falsehood, the Hero, dealeth wealth in boundless plenty.
5 May this my song reach Varuna and Indra, and, strongly urging, win me sons and offspring.
To the Gods banquet may we go with riches. Preserve us evermore, ye Gods, with blessings.

HYMN LXXXV. IndraVaruna-. 85

1. FOR you I deck a harmless hymn, presenting the Soma juice to Varuna and Indra-
A hymn that shines like heavenly Dawn with fatness. May they be near us on the march and guard us.
2 Here where the arrows fall amid the banners both hosts invoke the Gods in emulation.
O IndraVaruna-, smite back thoseour- foemenyea,, smite them withyour shaft to every quarter.
3 Selflucid- in their seats, even heavenly Waters endowed with Godhead Varuna and Indra.
One of these holds the folk distinct and sundered, the Other smites and slays resistless foemen.
4 Wise be the priest and skilled in Law Eternal, who with his sacred gifts and oration.
Brings you to aid us with your might, Adityas: let him have viands to promote his welfare.
5 May this my song reach Varuna and Indra, and, strongly urging, win me sons and offspring.
To the Gods banquet may we go with riches. Preserve us evermore, ye Gods with blessings.

HYMN LXXXVI. Varuna. 86

1. WISE, verily, are creatures through his greatness who stayed ever, spacious heaven and earth
asunder;
Who urged the high and mighty sky to motion, the Star of old, and spread the earth before him.
2 With mine own heart I commune on the question how Varuna and I may be united.
What gift of mine will he accept unangered? When may I calmly look and find him gracious?
3 Fain to know this is my sin I question others: I seek the wise, O Varuna, and ask them.
This one same answer even the sages gave me, Surely" this Varuna is angry with thee."
4 What, Varuna, hath been my chief transgression, that thou wouldst slay the friend who sings thy
praises?
Tell me, Unconquerable Lord, and quickly sinless will I approach thee with mine homage.
5 Free us from sins committed by our fathers, from those wherein we have ourselves offended.
O King, loose, like a thief who feeds the cattle, as from the cord a calf, set free Vasistha.
6 Not our own will betrayed us, but seduction, thoughtlessness, Varuna wine, dice, or anger.
The old is near to lead astray the younger: even sleep removeth not all evildoing-.
7 Slavelike may I do service to the Bounteous, serve, free from sin, the God inclined to anger.
This gentle Lord gives wisdom to the simple: the wiser God leads on the wise to riches.
8 O Lord, O Varuna, may this laudation come close to thee and lie within thy spirit.
May it be well with us in rest and labour. Preserve us evermore-, ye Gods, with blessings.

HYMN LXXXVII. Varuna. 87

1. VARUNA cut a pathway out for Surya, and led the watery floods of rivers onward.
The Mares, as in a race, speed on in order. He made great channels for the days to follow.
2 The wind, thy breath, hath sounded through the region like a wild beast that seeks his food in
pastures.
Within these two, exalted Earth and Heaven, O Varuna, are all the forms thou lovest.
3 Varunas' spies, sent forth upon their errand, survey the two worldhalves- well formed and
fashioned.
Wise are they, holy, skilled in sacrifices, the furtherers of the praisesongs- of the prudent.
4 To me who understand hath Varuna spoken, the names borne by the Cow are three times seven.
The sapient God, knowing the places' secret, shall speak as it were to teach the race that cometh.
5 On him three heavens rest and are supported, and the three earths are there in sixfold order.
The wise King Varuna hath made in heaven that Golden Swing to cover it with glory.
6 Like Varuna from heaven he sinks in Sindhu, like a whiteshining- spark, a strong wild creature.
Ruling in depths and meting out the region, great saving power hath he, this worlds' Controller.
7 Before this Varuna may we be sinless him who shows mercy even to the sinner-
While we are keeping Aditis' ordinances. Preserve us evermore, ye Gods, with blessings.

HYMN LXXXVIII. Varuna. 88

1. PRESENT to Varuna thine hymn, Vasistha, bright, most delightful to the Bounteous Giver,
Who bringeth on to us the Bull, the lofty, the Holy, laden with a thousand treasures.
2 And now, as I am come before his presence, I take the face of Varuna for Agnis'.
So might he bringLord- also of the darknessthe- light in heaven that I may see its beauty!
3 When Varuna and I embark together and urge our boat into the midst of ocean,
We, when we ride over ridges of the waters, will swing within that swing and there be happy.
4 Varuna placed Vasistha in the vessel, and deftly with his niight made him a Rsi.
When days shone bright the Sage made him a singer, while the heavens broadened and the Dawns were
lengthened.
5 What hath become of those our ancient friendships, when without enmity we walked together?
I, Varuna, thou glorious Lord, have entered thy lofty home, thine house with thousand portals.
6 If he, thy true ally, hath sinned against thee, still, Varuna, he is the friend thou lovedst.
Let us not, Living One, as sinners I know thee: give shelter, as a Sage, to him who lauds thee.
7 While we abide in these fixed habitations, and from the lap of Aditi win favour,
May Varuna untie the bond that binds us. Preserve us evermore, ye Gods, with blessings.

HYMN LXXXIX Varuna. 89

1. LET me not yet, King Varuna, enter into the house of clay:
Have mercy, spare me, Mighty Lord.
2 When, Thunderer! I move along tremulous like a windblown- skin,
Have mercy, spare me, Mighty Lord.
3 O Bright and Powerful God, through want of strength I erred and went astray
Have mercy, spare me, Mighty Lord.
4 Thirst found thy worshipper though he stood in the midst of waterfijods-:
Have mercy, spare me, Mighty Lord.
5 O Varuna, whatever the offence may be which we as men commit against the heavenly host,
When through our want of thought we violate thy laws, punish us not, O God, for that iniquity.
