yvk.1.8 The Stotra is the Saptadasa.
yvk.3.2 If he were to begin (the Stotra) without drawing them off, he would split the Pavamana [2], and with its being split the breath of the Adhvaryu would be split.
yvk.3.2 Him, who sacrifices not knowing the milking of the Stotra and the Sastra, the sacrifice milks, he after sacrificing becomes worse; he, who knowing the milking of these two sacrifices, milks the sacrifice; he after sacrificing becomes better.
yvk.3.2 The Sastra, of the Sastra thou art, may the Sastra milk strength for me, may the Sastra of the Sastra come to me he says; this is the milking of the Stotra and the Sastra; he who sacrifices knowing thus milks the sacrifice, and by sacrificing becomes better.
yvk.5.3 The fire is a hymn; I verily in that this arrangement [6] is made are its Stotra and Sastra produced; verily in the hymn the Arkya Saman( and Sastra) is produced; he eats food, and his son is born to eat food, for whom this arrangement is made, and he too who knows it thus.
yvk.5.4 He strokes with two (verses) in the Stotra of the Yajnayajniya; the sacrifice is as great as is the Agnistoma; a further extension is performed over and above it; verily he mounts at the end the whole extent of the sacrifice.
yvk.5.4 The Prstha Stotra() is of Sakvari verses to make the horse complete, there are various metres, different sets of animals are offered, both domesticated and wild; in that the Prstha is of Sakvari verses, (it is) to complete the horse.
yvk.6.3 Conquered as it were they go who creep to the Bahispavamana Stotra() when the Bahispavamana has been sung [1], he says, Agnidh, draw off the fires, spread the strew, make ready the sacrificial cake.
yvk.6.4 Having purified them by the Bahispavamana Stotra() they drew for them this cup for the Asvins; therefore (the cup) for the Asvins is drawn when the Bahispavamana has been sung.
yvk.6.6 Prajapati assigned the sacrifices to the gods; he thought himself emptied; he pressed over himself the power and strength of the sacrifice in sixteen ways; that became the Sodasin; there is no sacrifice called Sodasin; in that there is a sixteenth Stotra and a sixteenth Sastra, therefore is it the Sodasin, and that is why the Sodasin has its name.
yvk.6.6 He should also draw (it) in the Agnistoma for a Rajanya, for a Rajanya sacrifices desiring distinction; verily in the day rite he grasps a bolt for him, and the bolt kindles him to prosperity, or it burns him; the twenty onefold is the Stotra used, for support; what is recited has the word bay in it; he obtains the dear abode of Indra [4].
yvk.6.6 When the sun is half set, he sets about the Stotra of the Sodasin; in this world Indra slew Vrtra; verily straightway be hurls the bolt against his foe.
