yvk.6.3 O god Tvastr, make pleasant our possessions he says; Tvastr is the form maker of the pairings of cattle; verily he places form in cattle.
yvk.6.3 Visvarupa, Tvastr s son, vomited over the beast from above; therefore they do not cut off (portions) from the beast above; in that he anoints the beast from above, verily he makes it pure [4].
yvk.6.3 O god Tvastr, let much be united for thee he says; for cattle have Tvastr as their deity.
yvk.6.5 The Agrayana is Prajapati, the Upansu is the breath, the wives produce offspring; in that he draws (the cup) for Tvastr() with the wives from the Agrayana with the Upansu vessel, (it serves) for the production of offspring.
yvk.6.5 In that he mixes (the cup) for Tvastr() with the wives with ghee, he overpowers it with a bolt and draws it.
yvk.6.5 O A ni he says; the impregnator of seed is Agni; With the wives he says, for pairing; in unison with the god Tvastr drink the Soma he says; Tvastr is the maker of the forms of pairings of animals; verily he places form in animals.
yvk.6.5 The gods sought to slay Tvastr; he went to the wives, they would not give him up; therefore [4] men do not give up even one worthy of death who has come for help.
yvk.6.5 Therefore in (the cup) for the wives for Tvastr also a drawing is made.
yvk.6.5 Indra forcibly drank the Soma of Tvastr; he went to pieces on all sides [3]; he found no stay in himself; he saw these cakes ,as an addition to the pressing, them he offered, and with them he made a stay in himself; therefore as additional to the pressing the cakes are offered; therefore as additional to the pressing he should partake of the cakes; verily he makes a stay in himself, and the Soma does not flow through him.
yvk.6.6 In that the set of eleven (is set up), a thunderbolt is set up; it is liable to crush the sacrifice face to face; in that he sets up (the stake) (for Tvastr) with the wives, (it serves) to establish the sacrifice and to bind.
yvk.6.6 Indra caused Manu to sacrifice with his wife; after she had been encircled with fire he let her go; therewith Manu prospered; in that he lets go (the victim), (for Tvastr with the wives, the sacrificer prospers with the prosperity with which Manu prospered.
yvk.6.6 From what is unsupported in the sacrifice the sacrifice comes to ruin; as the sacrifice comes to ruin the sacrificer comes to ruin along with it; in that he completes (the offering) (for Tvastr) with the wives with butter, (it serves) to support the sacrifice, and as the sacrifice finds support, the sacrificer finds support along with it.
yvk.6.6 The offering of the caul [1] has been performed, the offering of the cow is not yet over, then he performs (the offering) (for Tvastr) with the wives; verily he performs it at the right moment; then indeed comes the conclusion.
