25. [He sets them down, with Vajasaneyi Samhita XIII, 33; Rik S. I, 22, 191 'See ye the deeds of Vishnu'—deed doubtless means power: thus, see ye the powers of Vishnu;—“whereby he beheld the sacred ordinances,”—ordinance means food: thus, whereby he did behold the food;—“Indra’s allied friend,” for he is indeed Indra’s allied friend. With a (verse) relating to two deities he sets them down, for the mortar and pestle are two. Once he 'settles' them: he thereby makes them one and the same; for one and the same is that food. Having 'settled' it, he pronounces the Sudadohas on it: the significance of this has been explained.
