Preview of English translation:

13. And of the fifth layer (of bricks) he lays down the Asapatna and Viraj (bricks) on the first day, and of the Stomabhagas one each day: these he 'settles' together once, and pronounces once the sudadohas-formula over them. For a month they silently apply the earth-layer for the Stomabhagas, for so long desire (lasts) in the winter season: thus he builds for himself a body so as to obtain all of whatever desire there is in the winter season.
