He thereupon touches (each) calf (in order to drive it away from the cow), with the formula (Vajasaneyi Samhita I, 1 c), “The winds are ye!”—for, indeed, it is this wind that here blows, it is this (wind) that makes swell all the rain that falls here; it is it that makes those (cows) swell; and for this reason he says 'the winds are ye!' Some people add here the formula, “Going near are ye!” but let him not say this, because thereby another (an enemy) approaches (the sacrificer).
