Mandala 8 – Hymn 100 [Rig Veda]

1. THY bounty, Dasyave-vrka, exhaustless hath displayed itself: Its fulness is as broad as heaven. 2. Ten thousand Dasyave-vrka, the son of Putakrata, hath From his own wealth bestowed on me. 3. A hundred asses hath he given, a hundred head of fleecy sheep, A hundred slaves, and wreaths besides. 4. There also was a mare led forth, picked out for Putakrata’s sake, Not of the horses of the herd. 5. Observant Agni hath appeared, oblation-bearer with his car. Agni with his resplendent flame hath shone on high as shines the Sun, hath shone like Surya in theheavens.
