5. He then lays down two Ritavya (seasonal bricks);—the two seasonal ones being the same as the seasons, it is the seasons he thus places therein.[Vajasaneyi Samhita XIV, 15], “Nabha and Nabhasya, the two rainy seasons,” these are the names of those two (bricks): it is by their names he thus lays them down. There are two (such) bricks, for a season consists of two months. He settles them once only: he thereby makes (the two months) one season. He places them on avaka-plants and covers them with avaka-plants; for avaka-plants mean water he thus bestows water on that season, whence it rains most abundantly in that season.
