LIKE Atri, Viśvasāman! sing to him of purifying light, who must be praised in holy rites, the Monk most welcome in the house.

Set Jātavedas in his place, Agni the Deva and Minister.

Let offering proceed to-day duly, comprising all the Devas.

All mortals come to thee for aid of most observant mind. Of thine excelling favour we bethink us as we long for it.

Mark with attention this our speech, O Agni, thou victorious One. Thee, Strong-jawed! as the homestead's Lord, the Atris with their lauds exalt, the Atris beautify with songs.
