Mandala 8 – Hymn 74 [Rig Veda]

1. To this mine invocation, O ye Asvins, ye Nasatyas, come, To drink the savoury Soma juice. 2. This laud of mine, ye Asvins Twain, and this mine invitation hear, To drink the savoury Soma juice. 3. Here Krsna is invoking you, O Asvins, Lords of ample wealth. To drink the savoury Soma juice. 4. List, Heroes, to the singer’s call, the call of Krsna lauding you, To drink the savoury Soma juice. 5. Chiefs, to the sage who sings your praise grant an inviolable home, To drink the savoury Soma juice. 6. Come to the worshipper’s abode, Asvins, who here is lauding you, To drink the savoury Soma juice. 7. Yoke to the firmly jointed car the ass which draws you, Lords of wealth. To drink the savoury Soma juice. 8. Come hither, Asvins, on your car of triple form with triple seat, To drink the savoury Soma juice. 9. O Asvins, O Nasatyas, now accept with favouring grace my songs, To drink the savoury Soma juice.
