6. Having gone back to the Garhapatya fire, he offers the gift offerings. Having tied a piece of gold in a fringed cloth, and laid it (into the spoon), he offers. “May there be a place for me in the world of the gods!” With this hope he offers whoever offers: that same sacrifice of his goes to the world of the gods; and behind it goes the gift he gives to the priests, and holding on to the gift follows the sacrificer.
