Jump to: navigation, search
1. HE lighting up the flame shall conquer enemies: strong shall he be who offers prayer and brings his gift.
     He with his seed spreads forth beyond another's seed, whomever Brahmanaspati takes for his friend.
2. With heroes he shall overcome his hero foes, and spread his wealth by kine wise by himself is be.
     His children and his children's children
     grow in strength, whomever Brahmanaspati takes for his friend.
3. He, mighty like a raving river's billowy flood, as a bull conquers oxen, overcomes with strength.
     Like Agni's blazing rush he may not be restrained, whomever Brahmanaspati takes for his friend.
4. For him the floods of heaven flow never failing down: first with the heroes he goes forth to war for kine.
     He slays in unabated vigour with great might, whomever Brahmanaspati takes for his friend.
5. All roaring rivers pour their waters down for him, and many a flawless shelter hath been granted him.
     Blest with the happiness of Gods he prospers well, whomever Brahmanaspati takes for his friend.
