A King's charm to secure the fidelity of his people

1Close gathered be your bodies: be your minds and vows in.
  Here present Brāhmanaspati and Bhaga have assembled you.
2Let there be union of your minds, let there be union of your
  All that is troubled in your lot with this I mend and harmonize.
3As, free from jealousy, the strong Ādityas have been the Vasus'
   and the Rudras' fellows.
  So free from jealousy, Lord of Three Titles! cause thou these
   people here to be one-minded.
