HYMN XL. Indu.

THE Very Active hath assailed, while purified, all enemies: They deck the Sage with holy songs.

The Red hath mounted to his place; to India, goes the mighty juice: He settles in his firm abode.

O Indu, Soma, send us now great opulence from every side, Pour on us treasures thousandfold.

O Indu, bring, indu, all splcndours hitherward: Find for us food in boundless store.

As thou art cleansed, bring hero strength and riches to thy worshipper, and prosper thou the singer's hymns.

O Indu, Soma, being cleansed, bring hither riches doublypiled, Wealth, mighty Indu, meet for lauds.
