He purifies it with stalks of Darbha-grass, thinking, “Let it be pure,”—with (Vajasaneyi Samhita X, 31), “The inviting Soma, purified by the purifying (strainer), has overflown backwards, Indra’s mated friend.” He then pours in flour of 'kuvala, karkandhu, and badara' berries, for when he (Indra) spit out thrice, that was what was produced therefrom: therewith he now supplies him and makes him whole,—therefore he pours in that (flour).
