He now puts on the one that is (to stand) on the right (i.e. south of the first), with the text (Vajasaneyi Samhita I, 18 d): “For all the regions I put thee on!” What fourth (world) there is or is not beyond these (three) worlds, by that indeed he thereby chases away the spiteful enemy. Uncertain, no doubt, is what fourth (world) there is or is not beyond these (three) worlds, and uncertain also are all those regions; for this reason he says, “For all the regions I put thee on!” The remaining potsherds he puts on either silently, or with the text (Vajasaneyi Samhita I, 18 e): “Layer-forming are ye! heap-forming are ye!”
