He performs with (Vajasaneyi Samhita VI, 36), “From east, from west, from north, from south—from every side may the regions resort to thee!” whereby he makes him consort with the regions as his mate, his loved resort. “O mother, satisfy (him)! may the noble meet together!” A mother (amba) is a woman, and the regions (dish, fem.) are women: therefore he says, “O mother, satisfy (him)!—May the noble meet together!” The noble doubtless means people (creatures, offspring): he thus means to say, “May the people live in harmony with each other!” Even the people that are far away (from each other) live in harmony with each other: therefore he says, “May the noble meet together.”
