14. And as to why the performer of the Rajasuya performs this offering. He who performs the Rajasuya assuredly gains for himself all sacrificial rites, all offerings, even the spoonful-oblations; and instituted by the gods indeed is this offering, the Sautramani: “May offering be made by me with this one also! may I be consecrated by this one also!” thus (he thinks, and) therefore the performer of the Rajasuya performs this offering.
