Mandala 4 – Hymn 14 [Rig Veda]

1. THE God hath looked, even Agni Jatavedas, to meet the Dawns refulgent in their glories. Come on your chariot, ye who travel widely, come to this sacrifice of ours, Nasatyas. 2. Producing light for all the world of creatures, God Savitar hath raised aloft his banner. Making his presence known by sunbeams, Surya hath filled the firmament and earth and heaven. 3. Red Dawn.is come, riding with brightness onward, distinguished by her beams, gay-hued and mighty. Dawn on her nobly-harnessed car, the Goddess, awaking men to happiness, approacheth. 4. May those most powerful steeds and chariot bring you, O Asvins, hither at the break of morning. Here for your drauglit of meath are Soma juices: at this our sacrifice rejoice, ye Mighty. 5. How is it that, unbound and unsupported, he falleth not although directed downward? By what self-power moves he? Who hath seen it? He guards the vault of heaven, a close-set pillar?
