5. [He sprinkles the stone, with, Vajasaneyi Samhita XVII, 1], “The food that is lying in the rock, in the mountain,”—for that food, water, is indeed contained in the rock, in the mountains;—“the drink that is gathered from waters, plants and trees,”—for from all that that drink is indeed gathered;—“that sap and food bring ye unto us, O Maruts, as bountiful givers!”—for the Maruts are the rulers of the rain. With 'In the rock is thy hunger,' he (after watering the altar) sets down (the pitcher on the stone): he thus lays hunger into the stone, whence the stone is not fit for eating. But hard also is the stone, and hard is hunger: he thus puts the hard along with the hard. With, “In me thy food!” he takes up (the pitcher): he thereby takes up the food into his own self. Thus (he does) a second and a third time.
