16. “Into thee I lay day and night; into thee I lay the wide air: allied with the gods, the lower and the higher,”—thereby he makes this (graha) one belonging to all the gods: because by means of it these creatures move about in the air breathing out and breathing in, therefore it belongs to all the gods.—“Delight thyself in the Antaryama, O mighty one!” the mighty one is Indra, and Indra is the leader of the sacrifice, wherefore he says 'O mighty one!' and in that he draws it with 'into—into,' thereby he means to say 'I lay thee into his (Indra's) self.'
