Preview of English translation:

30. Now some indeed pour (some of) the Vasativari water into the Maitravaruna’s cup, and from the Maitravaruna’s cup (back) to the Vasativari water, arguing, “Thereby we mix together both the sap of the sacrifice which was fetched yesterday and that fetched to-day.” But let him not do this; for when he pours (the water) together into the Adhavaniya trough, then both kinds of sap are mixed together. Thereupon he pours the Vasativari water into the Hotri’s cup for the Nigrabhyas. And as to why he makes them touch one another close over the pit, it was from thence, forsooth, that the gods rose to heaven; he thus makes the sacrificer look along the road to heaven.
