Mandala 1 – Hymn 78 [Rig Veda]

1. O JATAVEDAS, keen and swift, we Gotamas with sacred song exalt thee for thy glories’ sake. 2. Thee, as thou art, desiring wealth Gotama worships with his song: We laud thee for thy glories’ sake. 3. As such, like Angiras we call on thee best winner of the spoil: We laud thee for thy glories’ sake. 4. Thee, best of Vrtra-slayers, thee who shakest off our Dasyu foes: We laud thee for thy glories’ sake. 5. A pleasant song to Agni we, sons of Rahugana, have sung: We laud thee for thy glories’ sake.
