10. But on going down to the water, let him bury it at the place where the dry and the moist meet. But if he feel disinclined to going down (to the water), he pours out a vessel of water in front of the sacrificial stake and buries (the spit) at the place where the dry and the moist meet, with (Vajasaneyi Samhita VI, 22), “Injure thou not the waters nor the plants!” thus it injures neither the waters nor the plants; 'From every fetter—therefrom deliver us, O king Varuna! That they say, we swear by the "Inviolable (cows)," by "Varuna," therefrom deliver us, O Varuna!' Thereby he delivers him from every noose of Varuna, from all (guilt) against Varuna.
