4. He recites (verses) addressed to Agni: he accordingly kindles it (the fire) with the aid of its own deity. In the gayatri metre (are the verses which) he recites; for the gayatri is Agni’s metre: by means of its own metre he thereby kindles it. The gayatri is vigour, the gayatri is the brahman (the priestly order): with vigour he thereby kindles it.
