Preview of English translation:

21. Now some people offer (the Sannayya) to (Indra under the name of) “Mahendra” (the great Indra), arguing, “Before the slaying of Vritra he was Indra, it is true; but after slaying Vritra he became Mahendra, even as (a ragan, or king, becomes) a Maharaja after obtaining the victory: hence (the Sannayya should be offered) to Mahendra.” Let him, nevertheless, offer it to 'Indra;' for Indra he was before the slaying of Vritra, and Indra he is after slaying Vritra: therefore let him offer it to 'Indra.'
