6. He then puts on one that has lain on the ground,—he (Agni) is born when he is built up: it is for all (kinds of) food that he is born. Now that (wood) which has lain on the ground is one kind of food (for the fire): it is thereby he now gratifies him. [Vajasaneyi Samhita XI, 74; Rik S. VIII, 102, 21] “What the red ant eats, what the white ant crawls over,”—for either the red ant eats it, or the white ant crawls over it;—“let all that be ghee for thee, do thou relish that, O youngest!” as the text, so its meaning: whatever (wood) has lain on the ground, that he makes palatable for him; and having made it food for him, he sets it before him.
