BOOK 22.


SPLENDOUR art thou, bright, deathless, life protector.
Protector of my life be thou.
By impulse of God Savitar I take thee with arms of Asvins, with the hands of Pushan.


This girdle, which in their religious meetings sages assumed in earlier time of worship, Is present with us here at this libation, in the Law s hymn, proclaiming rich abundance.


Famous art thou, thou art the world, controller and upholder thou.
Go, consecrate by Svaha to Agni Vaisvanara widely famed.


For Gods and for Prajapati I fit thee.
For Gods and for Prajapati, O Brahman, Will I tie up the horse.
Thence may I prosper! Binding him for Prajapati and Gods be thou successful.


Thee welcome to Prajapati I sprinkle.
I sprinkle thee welcome to Indra Agni.
I sprinkle thee acceptable to Vayu.
Thee welcome to the All Gods I besprinkle.
Thee welcome to all Deities I sprinkle.
With fury Varuna attacks the man who fain would slay the steed.
Avaunt the man! Avaunt the dog!

For our protection I invoke the golden handed Savitar: He knoweth, as a God, the place.


We specially invoke the grace of Savitar, observant God, The great good will that gives true boons.


We seek the eulogy and gift of Savitar who strengthens grace, Yea, of the God who knows our thoughts.


I invocate the heroes’ Lord, free giving Savitar, and call The Cheerer to the feast of Gods.

The judgment of bright Savitar, that cheers the All Gods’ company, With prayer we estimate as bliss.


Wake Agni with thy laud and set the Immortal One aflame, let him Bestow our offerings on the Gods.


Oblation bearer, well inclined, immortal, eager Messenger, Agni comes near us with the thought.


Agni, Envoy, I place in front, the oblation bearer I address: Here let him seat the Deities.


Yea, Pavamana, thou didst generate the Sun and spread the moisture out with power, Basting to us with plenty vivified with milk.


Mighty through thy dam, eminent through thy sire, thou art a horse, thou art a steed, thou art a courser, thou art a comfort, thou art a racer, thou art a yoke horse, thou art a strong steed, thou art a stallion, thou art manly minded.
Thou art called Yayu, thou art called Sisu.
Follow thou the flight of the adityas.
Gods, Warders of the Regions, protect for the Gods this horse besprinkled for sacrifice.
Here is delight.
Here take thy pleasure.
Here is content.
Here is self content.
