Rig Veda, tr. by Ralph T.H. Griffith, [1896], at


1. MAY Viṣṇu form and mould the womb, may Tvaṣṭar duly shape the forms,
Prajāpati infuse the stream, and Dhātar lay the germ for thee.
2 O Sinīvālī, set the germ, set thou the germ, Sarasvatī:
May the Twain Gods bestow the germ, the Aśvins crowned with lotuses.
3 That which the Aśvins Twain rub forth with the attrition-sticks of gold,—
That germ of thine we invocate, that in the tenth month thou mayst bear.
