yvk.1.6 One knows Prajapati, Prajapati knows one; whom Prajapati knows, he becomes pure.
yvk.2.1 One who is engaged in a struggle should offer a dwarf (beast) to Visnu; then he becomes Visnu and conquers these worlds.
yvk.2.3 k One from the sky Matarisvan bore, The falcon churned another from the rock; Agni and Soma, waxing great through prayer, Ye made broad room for the sacrifice.
yvk.2.5 The theologians say, One should offer curds first, for curds is made first [4].
yvk.2.5 One should disregard that and offer ready (milk) first; verily one places power and strength in him and later impels him by curds; and he proceeds in order (of production).
yvk.2.5 One should sacrifice at the full moon, if one has enemies, not at the new moon; having slain one s enemy one does not cause him to grow again.
yvk.2.5 One should offer in full and large measure; Indra then being pleased delights him with offspring and cattle.
yvk.2.5 One should not sacrifice to, Mahendra, if one is not prosperous.
yvk.2.5 One offering only should one make; a valiant son is born to him.
yvk.2.5 One should disregard this and offer twice.
yvk.2.5 One who desires distinction should sacrifice with it, for this sacrifice has a razor edge, and swiftly he becomes holy or perishes.
yvk.2.5 One should not approach a woman on the new moon or the full moon night; if one were to do so, one would be impotent.
yvk.2.5 One should repeat in the intermediate note, to secure the gods.
yvk.2.5 One foot should be within the sacrificial altar, the other outside; then he repeats, to hold the ways apart and to avoid conflict of the paths.
yvk.3.3 c O Visvalopa, I offer thee in the mouth of the burner of all; One is an eater of the uneaten, one an eater of the unoffered, one an eater of that which is gathered; May they make for us medicine, An abode, delightful strength.
yvk.4.2 o Hearken to this our call, that is offered, O youngest one, Of the most generous one, O thou that hast power; One hateth, one praiseth.
yvk.4.2 d Be ye of one mind for us, One dwelling [1], spotless; Harm not the sacrifice, nor the lord of the sacrifice, O all knowers; Be ye two auspicious to day unto us.
yvk.4.3 M She who first shone forth is the child of holy order; One supporteth the might of the waters; One moveth in the places of the sun, And one in those of the heat; Savitr governeth one.
yvk.4.6 h One carver is there of the steed of Tvastr Two restrainers are there, so is the use; Those parts of thy limbs that I place in order, Those in balls I offer in the fire.
yvk.5.4 But again they say, One should pile it up.
yvk.5.6 h One god stepped upon them, As they glided, according to his will, (Saying) The great ones have breathed forth (d) Therefore they are called water.
yvk.6.2 One ox is unyoked, one ox is not unyoked; then he offers hospitality, for the continuance of the sacrifice.
yvk.6.2 One should not offer another libation in front; if be were to offer another libation in front [2], he would make something else the beginning.
yvk.6.2 One should take out of curd, that is the symbol of cattle; verily by the symbol he wins cattle [1].
yvk.6.2 One teat (of the cow) is used for a child, for that is fortunate.
yvk.6.3 One should recover one s former body they say, for who knows if the richer, when his will is accomplished will restore it or not.
yvk.6.3 One (of them) lies around the omentum; verily the body lies around the body.
yvk.6.5 One should not follow the other; if one were to follow the other, season would follow season, the seasons would be confused [3]; therefore in order the Adhvaryu sets out by the southern (door), the Pratiprasthatr by the nor hern; therefore the sun goes south for six months, north for six months.
yvk.7.1 The One Day Sacrifices
yvk.7.2 One should sacrifice by oneself, for Prajapati prospered by himself.
yvk.7.2 One should be consecrated for twelve nights; the year consists of twelve months, Prajapati is the year, he is Prajapati, he is born indeed who is born from fervour.
yvk.7.4 One took one day, one another, and with them all equally prospered.
yvk.7.5 The theologians say, They sit; by what path do they go? One should reply, By the path that leads to the gods.
yvk.7.5 One should recite the Sajaniya hymn; one should recite the Vihavya hymn; one should recite the Kayasubhiya hymn of Agastya.
yvk.7.5 One reviles, another extols.
