4. According to others, the Adhvaryu passes between the wife (and the Garhapatya fire). Let him not, however, do this either; for were he to pass that way, he would cut off the wife from the sacrifice. Along the east side of the Garhapatya and the inner side of the Ahavaniya (he passes); for thus he is not outside the sacrifice; and as before, in walking forward (to the Ahavaniya), he passed along the inner side, so he now also takes that path.
