Mandala 6 – Hymn 58 [Rig Veda]

1. LIKE heaven art thou: one form is bright, one holy, like Day and Night dissimilar in colour. All magic powers thou aidest, self-depen. dent! Auspicious be thy bounty here, O Pusan. 2. Goat-borne, the guard of cattle, he whose home is strength, inspirer of the hymn, set over all the world; Brandishing here and there his lightly. moving goad, beholding every creature, Pusan, God, goes forth. 3. O Pusan, with thy golden ships that travel across the ocean, in the air’s mid-region, Thou goest on an embassy to Surya, subdued by love, desirous of the glory. 4. Near kinsman of the heaven and earth is Pusan, liberal, Lord of food, of wondrous iustre, Whom strong and vigorous and swiftlymoving, subdued by love, the Deities gave to Surya.
