Hymns of the Atharva Veda, by Ralph T.H. Griffith, , at sacred-texts.com
1Let him to whose house the Vrātya who possesses this knowledge
comes as a guest.
2Rise up of his own accord to meet him, and say, Vrātya, where
didst thou pass the night? Vratya, here is water, Let them
refresh thee. Vrātya, let it be as thou pleasest. Vrātya, as thy
wish is so let it be. Vrātya, as thy desire is so be it.
3When he says to his guest, Where didst thou pass the night? he
reserves for himself thereby the paths that lead to the Gods.
4When he says to him, Here is water, he secures thereby water
5When he says to him, Let them refresh thee, he thereby wins
vital breath to exceeding old age.
6When he says to him, Vrātya, let it be as thou pleasest, he
secures to himself thereby what is pleasant. p. 157
7That which is pleasant comes to him, and he is the beloved of
the beloved, who is possessed of this knowledge.
8When he says to him, Vrātya, as thy will is so let it be, he
secures to himself thereby the fulfilment of his will.
9Authority comes to him who possesses this knowledge, and he
becomes the controller of the powerful.
10When he says to him, Vrātya, as thy desire is so be it, he secures
to himself thereby the attainment of his desire.
11His desire comes to him who possesses this knowledge and he
gains the complete satisfaction of his wish.
