Mandala 9 – Hymn 30 [Rig Veda]

1. STREAMS of this Potent One have flowed easily to the straining-cloth: While he is cleansed he lifts his voice. 2. Indu, by pressers urged to speed, bellowing out while beautified. Sends forth a very mighty sound. 3. Pour on us, Soma, with thy stream manconquering might which many crave, Accompanied with hero sons. 4. Hither hath Pavamana flowed, Soma flowed hither in a stream, To settle in the vats of wood. 5. To waters with the stones they drive thee tawny-hued, most rich in sweets, O Indu, to be Indra’s drink. 6. For Indra, for the Thunderer press the Soma very rich in sweets, Lovely, inspiriting, for strength.
