26. Now when he says, “Hail, from the mind (I take hold of) the sacrifice,” he takes hold of it from the mind;—in saying, “From the wide ether,” he takes hold of it from the ether;—in saying, “From heaven and earth,” he takes hold of it from those two, heaven and earth, on which this entire universe rests;—and in saying, “From the wind I take hold of (the sacrifice)”—the wind being the sacrifice—he takes hold of the sacrifice directly.
