5. That same sacrifice was afterwards performed by Devabhaga Shrautarsha. He was Purohita both to the Kurus and the Srinjayas. Now a very high position (is held by him) who is the Purohita of one kingdom: how much higher, then, is the position (of one) who (is the Purohita) of two (kingdoms). A very high position accordingly he obtains, whosoever, knowing this, performs that sacrifice: let him, therefore, perform that sacrifice.
