I, 36, 13] “Upright for our protection, stand thou like the god Savitri!”—as the text, so its meaning;—“upright, as a bestower 2 of strength,”—for standing upright he (the sun) indeed bestows strength, food;—“when we utter our call with the shining offerers”—the shining offerers, doubtless, are his (the sun's) rays: it is these he means. He lifts it up beyond the reach of his arms, for beyond the reach of his arms is that (sun) from here. He then lowers it; and having lowered it, he holds it above the navel: the meaning of this (will be explained) hereafter.
