1. THE Very Active hath assailed, while purified, all enemies: They deck the Sage with holy songs. 2 The Red hath mounted to his place; to India, goes the mighty juice: He settles in his firm abode. 3 O Indu, Soma, send us now great opulence from every side, Pour on us treasures thousandfold. 4 O Soma Pavamana, bring, Indu, all splcndours hitherward: Find for us food in boundless store. 5 As thou art cleansed, bring hero strength and riches to thy worshipper, And prosper thou the singer's hymns. 6 O Indu, Soma, being cleansed, bring hither riches doublypiled, Wealth, mighty Indu, meet for lauds.
