17. [Vajasaneyi Samhita XI, 5 Rik S. X, 13, 1] “By devotions I harness your old inspiration,”—the old inspiration (brahman) doubtless is the vital air, and devotion is food, and that food is this oblation: by means of this oblation, by means of this food, he harnesses the vital airs for this holy work,—“May the praise spread abroad on the lord’s path,”—this he says in order that there may be for the Sacrificer the praise of fame among both gods and men;—“may all sons of the immortal hear!”—the immortal one doubtless is Prajapati, and his sons are all the gods;—“who have resorted to the heavenly abodes;”—the heavenly abodes are these worlds: the gods that are in these worlds, with regard to them he says this.
