13. As to this they ask, “Who is the better one, the self-offerer, or the god-offerer?” Let him say, “The self-offerer;” for a self-offerer, doubtless, is he who knows, “This my (new) body is formed by that (body of Yajna, the sacrifice), this my (new) body is procured thereby.” And even as a snake frees itself from its skin, so does he free himself from his mortal body, from sin; and made up of the Ric, the Yajus, the Saman, and of offerings, does he pass on to the heavenly world.
