8. [Vajasaneyi Samhita XI, 18] “The courser, having started on his way,”—for his way has indeed been started upon;—“shaketh off all assaults,”—assaults mean evils: thus, “shakes off all evils;” and hence, indeed, the horse, whilst running, shakes itself;—“Agni he seeks to descry with his eye on the great seat;”—the great seat doubtless is this sacrificial (place): thus, “Agni he wishes to see with his eye on this great seat.”
