20. Now, indeed, it was Gotama Rahugana who discovered this (sacrifice). It went away to Janaka of Videha, and he searched for it in the Brahmanas versed in the Aṅgas (limbs of the Veda), and found it in Yajnavalkya. He said, “A thousand we give thee, O Yajnavalkya, in whom we have found that Mitravinda.” He finds (vind) Mitra, and his is the kingdom, he conquers recurring death and gains all life, whosoever, knowing this, performs this sacrifice; or whosoever thus knows it.
