7. Then, as to his taking out the Ahavaniya (from the Garhapatya) before the setting of the sun;—the rays, doubtless, are all those gods; and what highest light there is, that, indeed, is either Prajapati or Indra. Now all the gods approach the house of him who performs the Agnihotra: but whosesoever (offering) they approach before the fire has been taken out, from that the gods turn away, and he fails in it; and after the failure of that (offering) from which the gods turn away, people say, that, whether one knows it or not, the sun went down on account of that (fire) not having been taken out.
