44. [He offers, with, Vajasaneyi Samhita XVII, 79], Thine, O Agni, are seven logs,'—logs mean vital airs, for the vital airs do kindle him;—“seven tongues,”—this he says with regard to those seven persons which they made into one person;—“seven Rishis,”—for seven Rishis they indeed were;—“seven beloved seats,”—this he says with regard to the metres, for his seven beloved seats are the metres;—“sevenfold the seven priests worship thee,”—for in a sevenfold way the seven priests indeed worship him;—“the seven homes,”—he thereby means the seven layers (of the altar);—“fill thou!”—that is, “generate thou;”—“with ghee,”—ghee means seed: he thus lays seed into these worlds;—“svaha!”—the svaha (hail!) is the sacrifice; he thus at once makes everything here fit for sacrifice.
