HYMN V Apris.

1. ENKINDLED, Pavamana, Lord, sends forth his light on, every side

In friendly show, the bellowing Bull.

2 He, Pavamana, Self-produced, speeds onward sharpening his horns:

He glitters through the firmament.

3 Brilliant like wealth, adorable, with splendour Pavamana shines,

Mightily with the streams of meath.

4 The tawny Pavamana, who strews from of old the grass with might,

Is worshipped, God amid the Gods.

5 The golden, the Celestial Doors are lifted with their frames on high,

By Pavamana glorified.

6 With passion Pavamana longs for the great lofty pair, well-formed

Like beauteous maidens, Night and Dawn

7 Both Gods who look on men I call, Celestial Heralds: Indra's Self

Is Pavamana, yea, the Bull.

8 This, Pavamana's sacrifice, shall the three beauteous Goddesses,

Sarasvati and Bharati and Ila, Mighty One, attend.

9 1 summon Tvastar hither, our protector, champion, earliest-born,

Indu is Indra, tawny Steer; Pavamana is Prajapati.

10 O Pavamana, with the meath in streams anoint Vanaspati,

The ever-green. the golden-hued, refulgent, with a thousand boughs.

11 Come to the consecrating rite of Pavamana, all ye Gods, -

Vayu, Surya, Brhaspati, Indra, and Agni, in accord.
