Rig Veda

  1. THE Godlike hero, famousest of nobles, hath granted me two oxen with a wagon. Trvrsan’s son Tryaruna hath distinguished himself, Vaiśvānara Agni! with ten thousands. 2 Protect Tryaruna, as thou art waxing strong and art highly praised, Vaiśvānara Agni! Who granteth me a hundred kine and twenty, and two bay horses, good at draught, and harnessed. 3 So Trasadasyu served thee, God Most Youthful, craving thy favour for the ninth time, Agni; Tryaruya who with attentive spirit accepteth many a song from me the mighty. 4 He who declares his wish to me, to Asvamedha, to the Prince, Pays him who with his verse seeks gain, gives power to him who keeps the Law. 5 From whom a hundred oxen, all of speckled hue, delight my heart, The gifts of Asvamedha, like thrice-mingled draughts of Soma juice. 6 To Asvamedha who bestows a hundred gifts grant hero power, O Indra-Agni! lofty rule like the unwasting Sun in heaven.
