Mandala 4 – Hymn 46 [Rig Veda]

1. DRINK the best draught of Soma-juice, O Vayu, at our holy rites: For thou art he who drinketh first. 2. Come, team-drawn, with thy hundred helps, with Indra, seated in the car, Vaya, and drink your fill of juice. 3. May steeds a thousand bring you both, Indra. and Vayu, hitherward To drink the Soma, to the feagt. 4. For ye, O Indra-Vayu, mount the goldenseated car that aids The sacrifice, that reaches heaven. 5. On far-refulgent chariot come unto the man who offers gifts: Come, Indra-Vayu, hitherward. 6. Here, Indra-Vayu, is the juice: drink it, accordant with the Gods, Within the giver’s dwelling-place. 7. Hither, O Indra-Vayu, be your journey here unyoke your steeds, Here for your draught of Soma juice.
