12. And there, in the Havirdhana, that male, the Soma, longs after the female, the water. From that generation the moon was produced: from food, indeed, food is produced, viz. the moon from water and Soma; for the moon is the food of him that burns yonder. Hence he thereby produces the sacrificer, and for him he produces food: from the Ric and Saman he produces the sacrificer, and from water and Soma he produces food for him.
