HYMN XXVI
A prayer for protection, guidance, and prosperity
1
Let that Destructive Weapon be far distant from us, O ye Gods;far be the Stone ye wont to hurl.
2
Our friend be that Celestial Grace, Indra and Bhaga be our friends,and Savitar with splendid Wealth.
 p. a25
3
Thou, Offspring of the waterflood, ye Maruts, with your sun-bright skins, give us protection reaching far.
4
Further us rightly, favour ye our bodies with your gracious love.Give thou our children happiness
.
HYMN XXVII
A charm to obtain invisibility
1
There on the bank those Vipers lie, thrice-seven, having casttheir skins:Now we with their discarded sloughs bind close and cover up theeyes of the malicious highway thief.
2
Far let her go, cutting her way, brandishing, as it were, a club:Diverted be the new-born's mind: ne'er are the wickedprosperous.
3
 Not many have had power enough; the feeble ones have notprevailed,Like scattered fragments of a reed: ne'er are the wicked pros-perous.
4
Go forward, feet, press quickly on, bring to the house of himwho pays.Unconquered and unplundered, let Indrānf, foremost, lead theway.
HYMN XXXI
A prayer for protection and general prosperity
1
Here will we serve with sacrifice the great Controllers of theworld,The four immortal Warders who protect the regions of the sky.
2
Ye, Guardians of the regions, Gods who keep the quarters of the heavens,Rescue and free us from the bonds of Nirriti, from grief andwoe!
3
I, free from stiffness, serve thee with oblation, not lame I sacri-fice with oil and fatness.Let the strong Warder God, who keeps the regions bring to ushither safety and well-being.
4
Well be it with our mother and our father, well be it with our cows, and beasts, and people.Ours be all happy fortune, grace, and favour. Long, very longmay we behold the sunlight.
HYMN XXXIII
 
2
To the Waters, for health and happiness
1
May they, the golden-hued, the bright, the splendid, they whereinSavitar was born and Agni,They who took Agni as a germ, fair-coloured, the Waters, bringfelicity and bless us!
2
They in the midst whereof King Varuna moveth, viewing men'srighteous and unrighteous dealing.They who took Agni as a germ, fair-coloured,—those Waters bringfelicity and bless us!
3
Whom the Gods make their beverage in heaven, they who waxmanifold in air's mid-region,They who took Agni as a germ, fair-coloured,—those Waters bringfelicity and bless us!
4
Ye Waters, with auspicious eye behold me: touch ye my skinwith your auspicious body.May they, the bright and pure, distilling fatness, those Waters,bring felicity and bless us.
HYMN XXXIV
A young man's love-charm
0
1. From honey sprang this Plant to life; with honey now we digthee up.Make us as sweet as honey, for from honey hast thou been pro-duced.
2
My tongue hath honey at the tip, and sweetest honey at the root:
 p. a31
Thou yieldest to my wish and will, and shalt be mine and onlymine.
3
My coming in is honey-sweet and honey-sweet, my going forth:My voice and words are sweet: I fain would be like honey inmy look.
4
Sweeter am I than honey, yet more full of sweets than licorice:So mayst thou love me as a branch full of all sweets, and only me.
5
Around thee have I girt a zone of sugar-cane to banish hate.That thou mayst be in love with me, my darling never to depart.
HYMN XXXV
A charm to ensure long life and glory to the wearer of an amulet
1
This Ornament of Gold which Daksha's children bound, withbenevolent thoughts, on Satānïka,This do I bind on thee for life, for glory, for long life lastingthrough a hundred autumns.
2
This man no fiends may conquer, no Pisāchas, for this is mightof Gods, their primal offspring.Whoever wears the Gold of Daksha's children hath a longlengthened life among the living.
3
The light, the power, the lustre of the Waters, the strength of 
 
3
Trees, and all their forceful vigour,We lay on him as powers abide in Indra: so let him wear thisGold and show his valour.
4
With monthly and six-monthly times and seasons, with the fullyear's sweet essence do we fill thee,
 p. a32
May Indra, Agni, and all Gods together, showing no anger, grantthee what thou wishest.
HYMN I
Glorification of the prime cause of all things
1
Vena beholds That Highest which lies hidden, wherein this Allresumes one form and fashion.Thence Prisni milked all life that had existence: the hosts thatknow the light with songs extolled her.
2
Knowing Eternity, may the Gandharva declare to us that highestsecret station.Three steps thereof lie hidden in the darkness: he who knowsthese shall be the father's father.
3
He is our kinsman, father, and begetter: he knows all beingsand all Ordinances.He only gave the Gods their appellations: all creatures go tohim to ask direction.
4
I have gone forth around the earth and heaven, I have approachedthe first-born Son of Order.He, putting voice, as 'twere, within the speaker, stands in theworld, he, verily is Agni.
5
I round the circumjacent worlds have travelled to see the far-extended thread of Order.Wherein the Gods, obtaining life eternal, have risen upward toone common birthplace.
HYMN II
A charm to ensure success in gambling
1
Lord of the World, divine Gandharva, only he should behonoured in the Tribes and worshipped.Fast with my spell, celestial God, I hold thee. Homage to thee!Thy home is in the heavens.
2
Sky-reaching, like the Sun in brightness, holy, he who avertsfrom us the Gods' displeasure.Lord of the World, may the Gandharva bless us, the friendlyGod who only must be worshipped.
3
I came, I met these faultless, blameless beings: among theApsarases was the Gandharva.Their home is in the sea—so men have told me,—whence theycome quickly hitherward and vanish.
4
Thou, Cloudy! ye who follow the Gandharva Visvā-vasu, ye,Starry! Lightning-Flasher!
