37. [Vajasaneyi Samhita VI, 20], “To Indra belongeth the out-breathing: may it attend to every limb! To Indra belongeth the in-breathing: it is attended to in every limb.” Where it has been cut up limb by limb, there he heals it by means of the out-breathing and in-breathing.—“O divine Tvashtri, let thine ample (forms) closely unite together, that it be uniform what is of different shape:” whereby he makes it completely enclosed (in its limbs and flesh). “May thy friends, thy father and mother, to please thee, joyfully welcome thee going to the gods!” Thus, having made it whole wherever he has offered (a piece of) it, he afterwards unites it firmly, and that body (self) of it is complete in yonder world.
