3. He takes it with (Vajasaneyi Samhita VI, 30), “At the impulse of the divine Savitri I take thee with the arms of the Ashvins, with the hands of Pushan; thou art a giver!” For Savitri is the impeller of the gods; thus he takes it, impelled by Savitri. “With the arms of the Ashvins,” he says,—the Ashvins are the Adhvaryus (of the gods): with their arms he thus takes it, not with his own. “With the hands of Pushan,” he says,—Pushan is the distributor of portions: with his hands he thus takes it, not with his own. Moreover, that (stone) is a thunderbolt, and no man can hold it: by means of those deities he takes it.
