2. He addresses the horse, with (Vajasaneyi Samhita XI, 43 Rik S. X, 1, 2), “Thus born, art thou the child of the two worlds;”—the two worlds, doubtless, are these two, heaven and earth; and he (Agni) thus born, is the child of these two;—“O Agni, the lovely (child), distributed among the plants,”—for he, the lovely one, is indeed distributed among all the plants;—“a brilliant child, through gloom and night,”—for as a brilliant child, he (Agni) indeed shines beyond gloom and night;—“crying aloud thou didst go forth from the mothers;”—his mothers, doubtless, are the plants, and from them he comes forth crying aloud. He thereby lays vigour into the horse.
