‘Hiranyavarnah suchayah pavakah yasu jatah kasyaposyasvindrah Agnim ya garbham dadhire virrupastana apasaggum syona bhavantu’ Annotation: This is a rayer to the Goddess-waters( Apodevih,) found in the Aposukta of Veda and panishad. Waters are the golden in Hue, pure,clear and purifiers. In it, the sage asyapa and Indra are born. Those water goddesses who conceived and contained Agni within them, who are of different Forms, would be to us providers of happiness, peace and comforts here and hereafter. Basically the water is adjudged as quite calm and cool (santah vai apah).Without water there is no creation, existence and annihilation. May water goddesses comfort us. This prayer is employed in the’ nitya sandhyopasana ‘and while taking bath and at other several religious applications. This prayer has magical and significant rewards.
