7. “Thou art taken with a support: for Agni I take thee, possessed of the Gayatri metre!”—the morning-service is of Gayatri nature: he thus possesses himself of the morning-service;—“For Indra I take thee, possessed of the Trishtubh metre!”—the midday-service is of Trishtubh nature: he thus possesses himself of the midday-service;—“For the Vishve Devah I take thee, possessed of the Jagati metre!”—the evening-service is of Jagati nature: he thus possesses himself of the evening-service;—“The Anushtubh is thy song of praise;”—whatever is subsequent to the (three) services, that is of Anushtubh nature: it is thereof he thus possesses himself.
