2. He spreads it in front of the Garhapatya, on the Vedi, with the hairy side upwards, and the neck towards the east: thereon they appease that layer. Now he sprinkles (the bricks);—when he sprinkles, he thereby makes it pure, sacrificially clean;—with clarified butter (he sprinkles), for that is pure, sacrificially clean; and also with the view of its being unsurpassed, for no other sacrificial food is sprinkled with ghee;—silently (he sprinkles), for what is (done) silently is undefined, and the undefined is everything: by means of everything he thus makes it pure, and sacrificially clean; and also with the view of its being unsurpassed, for no other sacrificial food is sprinkled silently.
