3. And again what fire there is in the hall (sabha), that is the same as Anashnat Saṅgamana: Anashvat (not eating) it is for the reason that people approach it before they eat. And that (place) where they throw the ashes they remove (from the fireplaces) is the same as Asat Pamsava. And whosoever knows this, thus gains all those worlds, traverses all those worlds, thinking, “In me those gods reside.”
