1. He puts a piece of copper into the mouth of a long-haired man, with (Vajasaneyi Samhita X, 10), “Removed by sacrifice are the mordacious.” For verily he who performs the Rajasuya escapes all kinds of death, all murderous blows, and old age alone is his death: hence whatever kind of death, whatever murderous blow there is, past that he now guides him, as past the mordacious ones.
