yvs.11 HARNESSING, first of all, the mind, Savitar having stretched the thought With reverent look upon the light of Agni bore them up from earth.
yvs.11 From the earth s seat bring thou Purishya Agni, as Angiras was wont, with Trishtup metre.
yvs.11 Ours be power with thee to dig out Agni in his dwelling, as Angiras was wont, with Jagati metre.
yvs.11 11 Savitar, bearing in his hand the gold spade which he took therewith, Looking with reverence on the light of Agni, raised it from the earth, With the Anushtup metre and as Angiras was wont to do.
yvs.11 13 Upon this course, O lords of wealth, harness; ye twain, the Ass who bears Agni, and kindly favours us.
yvs.11 16 From the Earth s seat, like Anginas, bring thou Purishya Agni forth.
yvs.11 After the wont of Angiras we to Purishya Agni go.
yvs.11 Agni Purishya we will bear after the went of Angiras.
yvs.11 17 Agni hath looked along the van of Mornings, looked on the days, the earliest Jatavedas, And many a time along the beams of Surya: along the heaven and earth hast thou extended.
yvs.11 He longs to look with reverent eye on Agni is the mighty.
yvs.11 19 O Courser, having come to earth, seek Agni with a longing wish.
yvs.11 May we enjoy Earth s favour while we dig forth Agni from her 22 Down hath he stepped, wealth giver, racer, courser.
yvs.11 Thence let us dig forth Agni, fair to look on, while to the loftiest vault we mount, to heaven.
yvs.11 Agni with bridegroom s face and lovely colour may not be touched when all his form is fury.
yvs.11 25 Round the oblation bath he paced, Agni the wise, the Lord of Strength, Giving the offerer precious boons.
yvs.11 26 We set thee round us as a fort, victorious Agni, thee a Sage, Of hero lineage, day by day destroyer of our treacherous foes.
yvs.11 27 Thou, Agni, with the days, fain to shine hitherward, art brought to life from out the waters, from the stone,
yvs.11 28 At Savitar s, the Shining One s, impulsion, with arms of Asvins and with hands of Pushan, As Angiras was wont to do, I dig thee forth from the seat of Earth, Agni Purishya.
yvs.11 Thee, Agni, luminous and fair of aspect, resplendent with imperishable lustre, gracious to living creatures, never harming, As Angiras was wont to do, we dig thee forth from the seat of Earth, Agni Purishya.
yvs.11 29 Thou art the Waters back, the womb of Agni, around the ocean as it swells and surges.
yvs.11 Do ye; expansive, cover him: bear ye Purishya Agni up. 31 Cover him, finders of the light, united both with breast and self, Bearing between you Agni, the refulgent, everlasting One.
yvs.11 Atharvan was the first, Agni, who rubbed thee into life.
yvs.11 Agni, Atharvan brought thee forth by rubbing from the lotus, from The head of Visva, of the Priest.
yvs.11 Agni, give long life to the Sacrificer.
yvs.11 36 Accustomed to the Hotar s place, the Hotar hath seated him, bright, splendid, passing mighty, Whose foresight keeps the Law from violation, excellent, pure tongued, bringing thousands, Agni.
yvs.11 Worthy of sacred food, praised Agni! loose the smoke, ruddy and beautiful to see.
yvs.11 O Agni, Rich in Splendour, robe thyself in many hued attire.
yvs.11 With great light splendid to behold come, Agni, through sweet hymns of praise.
yvs.11 43 Thou, being horn, art Child of Earth and Heaven, parted, fair Babe, among the plants, O Agni.
yvs.11 Broad be thou, pleasant as a seat, bearing the store which Agni needs.
yvs.11 Bearing Purishya Agni on, let him not perish ere his time, Male bearer of male Agni, Child of Waters, Offspring of the Sea.
yvs.11 Agni, come hither to the feast.
yvs.11 As Angiras was wont to do, we bear Purishya Agni on.
yvs.11 Ye Plants, with joyous welcome greet this Agni, auspicious One who cometh on to meet you.
yvs.11 May lofty Agni be my guide and shelter, ready to hear our call, the good Protector.
yvs.11 57 Aditi shape the Fire pan with her power, her arms, her intellect, And in her womb bear Agni as a mother, in her lap, her son.
yvs.11 She, having made the great Fire pan, a womb for Agni, formed of clay, Aditi, gave it to her Sons and, Let them bake it, were her words.
yvs.11 66 Intention, Agni.
yvs.11 Motive, Hail! Mind, Wisdom, Agni, Motive, Hail! Thought, Knowledge, Agni, Motive, Hail! Rule of Speech, Agni, Motive, Hail! To Manu Lord of creatures, Hail! To Agni dear to all men, Hail! 67 May every mortal man elect the friendship of the guiding God.
yvs.11 Endure, O Mother, and be brave; This work will thou and Agni do.
yvs.11 Do thou Purishya, Agni, loved of many, overcome our foes.
yvs.11 73 O Agni, whatsoever be the fuel that we lay on thee, May that he butter unto thee.
yvs.11 75 Bringing to him, with care unceasing, fodder day after day as to a stabled courser, Joying in food and in the growth of riches, may we thy neighbours, Agni, never be injured.
yvs.11 76 While on earth s navel Agni is enkindled, we call, for ample increase of our riches, On Agni joying in the draught, much lauded, worshipful; victor conquering in battle.
yvs.11 77 Whatever hosts there are, fiercely assailant, charging in lengthened lines, drawn up in order, Whatever thieves there are, whatever robbers, all these I cast into thy mouth, O Agni.
yvs.12 Agni by vital powers became immortal when his prolific Father Dyaus begat him.
yvs.12 The wealth possessing Gods supported Agni.
yvs.12 6 Agni roared out like Dyaus what time he thunders: licking full oft the earth round plants he flickered.
yvs.12 7 Return to me, thou still returning Agni, with life, with lustre, progeny, and treasure, With profit, wisdom, riches, and abundance.
yvs.12 8 A hundred, Agni Angiras! be thy ways, a thousand thy returns.
yvs.12 9 Return again with nourishment; Agni, again with food and life.
yvs.12 10 Agni, return with store of wealth.
yvs.12 Fair shapen Agni with white shining splendour hath filled at birth all human habitations.
yvs.12 15 Knowing all holy ordinances, Agni, be seated in the lap of this thy mother.
yvs.12 16 Within this Fire pan with thy light, O Agni, in thy proper seat, Glowing with warmth, be gracious thou, O Jatavedas, unto her.
yvs.12 17 Being propitious unto me, O Agni, sit propitiously.
yvs.12 18 First Agni sprang to life from out of heaven, the second time from us came Jatavedas.
yvs.12 19 Agni, we know thy three powers in three stations, we know thy forms in many a place divided.
yvs.12 21 Agni roared out, etc.
yvs.12 Even the firm rock he cleft when passing over, when the Five Tribes brought sacrifice to Agni.
yvs.12 24 So among mortals was immortal Agni stablished as cleansing, wise, and eager envoy.
yvs.12 26 Whoso this day, O God whose flames are lovely, makes thee a cake, O Agni, mixed with butter, Lead thou and further him to higher fortune, to bliss bestowed by Gods, O thou Most Youthful.
yvs.12 27 Endow him, Agni, with a share of glory, at every, song of praise sung forth enrich him.
yvs.12 Dear let him be to Surya, dear to Agni, preminent with son and children s children.
yvs.12 28 While, Agni, day by day men pay thee worship they win themselves all treasures worth the wishing.
yvs.12 29 Agni, man s gracious Friend, the Soma s keeper, Vaisvanara, hath been lauded by the Rishis.
yvs.12 30 Pay service unto Agni with your fuel, rouse your Guest with oil: In him present your offerings.
yvs.12 31 May all the Gods, O Agni, bear thee upward with their earnest thoughts: Not to be looked on, rich in light, be thou propitious unto us, 32 Agni, go forth resplendent, thou with thine auspicious flames of fire.
yvs.12 33 Agni roared out, etc.
yvs.12 34 Far famed is this the Bharata s own Agni: he shineth like the Sun with lofty splendour.
yvs.12 36 Agni, thy home is in the floods: into the plants thou forcest way, And as their child art born anew.
yvs.12 37 Thou art the offspring of the plants, thou art the offspring of the trees: The offspring thou of all that is, thou, Agni, art the Waters Child, 38 With ashes having reached the womb, the waters, Agni and the earth, United with the mothers, thou blazing hast seated thee again.
yvs.12 39 Seated again upon thy seat, the waters, Agni! and the earth, In her, thou, most auspicious One, liest as in a mother s lap
yvs.12 Agni, return, etc.
yvs.12 I thine adorer laud thy form, O Agni.
yvs.12 Thou art the ashes, thou the mould of Agni.
yvs.12 47 This is that Agni where the longing Indra took the pressed Soma deep within his body.
yvs.12 48 The splendour which is thine in heaven, O Agni, in earth, O Holy One, in plants, in waters, Wherewith thou hast overspread mid air s broad region, that light is brilliant, billowy, man surveying.
yvs.12 49 O Agni, to the flood of heaven thou mountest, thou tallest hither Gods, the thought inspirers.
yvs.12 51 As holy food, Agni, to thine invoker give wealth in cattle, lasting, rich in marvels.
yvs.12 Agni, be this thy gracious will to us ward.
yvs.12 Knowing this, Agni, mount on high and cause our riches to increase.
yvs.12 Be thou our Sovran Lord, Agni Purishya; give food and vigour to the Sacrificer.
yvs.12 59 Thou art Purishya Agni, thou art wealthy, thou art prosperous.
yvs.12 61 Even as a mother bears her son, Earth, Ukha hath borne within her womb Purishya Agni.
yvs.12 Thy covering skin Agni, urged forth, hath mounted.
yvs.12 105 All, Agni, that in thee is bright, pure, cleansed, and meet for sacrifice, That do we bring unto the Gods.
yvs.12 107 Agni, life power and fame are thine: thy fires blaze mightily, thou rich in wealth of beams! Sage, passing bright, thou givest to the worshipper, with strength, the food that merits laud.
yvs.12 In thee are treasured various forms of strengthening food, born nobly and of wondrous help. 110 Agni, spread forth, as Ruler, over living things: give wealth to us, Immortal God.
yvs.12 112 The men have set before them for their welfare Agni, strong, visible to all, the Holy.
yvs.12 116 May Vatsa draw thy mind away, even from thy loftiest dwelling place, Agni, with song that yearns for thee.
yvs.12 117 Agni, best Angiras, to thee all people who have pleasant homes Apart have turned to gain their wish.
yvs.12 118 In dear homes, Agni, the desire of all that is and is to be, Shines forth the One Imperial Lord.
yvs.13 I TAKE within me Agni first, for increase of my wealth, good offspring, manly strength: So may the Deities wait on me.
yvs.13 2 Thou art the waters back, the womb of Agni, around the ocean as it swells and surges.
yvs.13 Spread with thy tongue the winged flames, O Agni: unfettered cast thy firebrands all around thee.
yvs.13 12 Rise up, O Agni, spread thee out before us, burn down our foes, thou who hast sharpened arrows.
yvs.13 Him, blazing Agni! who hath worked us mischief, consume thou utterly like dried up stubble.
yvs.13 13 Rise, Agni, drive off those who fight against us: make manifest thine own celestial vigour.
yvs.13 I settle thee with Agni s fiery ardour.
yvs.13 14 Agni is head and height of heaven, the Master of the earth is he: He quickeneth the waters seed.
yvs.13 Thy light bestowing head to heaven thou liftest, making thy tongue the oblation bearer, Agni! 16 Steady art thou, sustainer, laid by Visvakarman in thy place.
yvs.13 19 For all breath, out breath; through breath, upward breathing, for high position, for prescribed observance, May Agni keep thee safe with great well being, with the securest shelter.
yvs.13 22 Thy lights, O Agni, in the Sun that with their beams overspread the sky, With all of those assist thou us to day to light and progeny.
yvs.13 Lights of yours in the Sun, O Gods, or lights that are in kine and steeds, O Indra Agni, with all those vouchsafe us light, Brihaspati! 24 The Far.
yvs.13 Thy Sovran Lord is Agni.
yvs.13 25 Madhu and Madhava, the two Spring seasons thou art the innermost cement of Agni.
yvs.13 30 Seat thyself in the deepness of the waters, lest Surya, lest Vaisvanara Agni scorch thee.
yvs.13 Thou art all ruling, independent Ruler: both fountains of Sarasvati protect thee! 36 O radiant Agni, harness thou thy steeds which are most excellent! They bear thee as thy spirit wills.
yvs.13 37 Yoke, Agni, as a charioteer, thy steeds who best invoke the Gods: As ancient Hotar take thy seat.
yvs.13 I look upon the flowing streams of butter: the golden reed is in the midst of Agni.
yvs.13 This hath become the energetic spirit of all the world and of Vaisvanara Agni.
yvs.13 40 Agni, all luminous with light, splendid with splendour, golden One.
yvs.13 42 The wind s impetuous rush, Varuna s navel! the horse that springs to life amid the waters! The rivers tawny child, based on the mountain, harm not, O Agni, in the loftiest region.
yvs.13 43 Unwasting Drop, red, eager, pressing forward, Agni I worship with repeated homage.
yvs.13 Forming thyself with joints in proper order, harm not the Cow, Aditi widely ruling! 44 Her who is Tvashtar s guardian, Varuna s navel, the Ewe brought forth from out the loftiest region, The Asura s mighty thousandfold contrivance, injure not in the highest sphere, O Agni.
yvs.13 45 The Agni who from Agni had his being, from heat of Earth or also heat of Heaven, Whereby the Omnific One engendered creatures, him may thy fierce displeasure spare, O Agni.
yvs.13 46 The brilliant presence of the Gods hath risen, the eye of Mitra, Varuna, and Agni.
yvs.13 Accept as pith man s counterfeit the victim, Agni: therewith building thy forms, be settled.
yvs.13 49 Thousandfold, with a hundred streams, this fountain, expanded in the middle of the waters, Infinite, yielding butter for the people, harm not, O Agni, in the highest region.
yvs.13 50 This creature clothed in wool, Varuna s navel, the skin of animals quadruped and biped, The first that was produced of Tvashtar s creatures, O Agni, harm not in the highest region.
yvs.13 51 From Agni s warmth the he goat had his being: he looked at first upon his generator.
yvs.14 6 Sukra and Suchi, seasons, both, of summer thou art the innermost cement of Agni.
yvs.14 7 Associate with the Seasons, with the Modes with the Gods, with the health establishing Gods may the Asvins the Adhvaryus settle thee here for Agni Vaisvanara.
