Hymns of the Atharva Veda, by Ralph T.H. Griffith, , at sacred-texts.com
1Cleanse us Vaisvānara with rays of splendour! With breath and
clouds let quickening Vāyu cleanse us. p. a229
And, rich in milky rain, let Earth and Heaven, worshipful, holy,
cleanse us with their water.
2Lay hold on Sūnritā whose forms and regions have fair smooth
backs, her who is all men's treasure.
Through her may we, in sacrificial banquets singing her glory, be
the lords of riches.
3For splendour, seize on her whom all men worship, becoming
pure yourselves, and bright, and brilliant.
Here, through our prayer rejoicing in the banquet, long may we
look upon the Sun ascending.
