3. Now the Udgatri is Prajapati, and the Hotri, (being) the Rik (fem.), is a female. And when he chants, then the Udgatri, Prajapati, implants seed in the female Hotri, the Rik; this the Hotri brings forth by means of the shastra (recitation), he sharpens it even as this man is sharpened, and because he thereby sharpens (sho) therefore it is called sastra.
