3. “King Manu Vaivasvata,” he says;—“his people are Men, and they are staying here;”-householders , unlearned in the scriptures, have come thither: it is these he instructs;—“The Rik (verses) are the Veda: this it is;” thus saying, let him go over a hymn of the Ric, as if reciting it. Masters of lute-players have come thither: these he calls upon, “Masters of lute-players,” he says, “sing ye of this Sacrificer along with righteous kings of yore!” and they accordingly sing of him; and in thus singing of him, they make him share the same world with the righteous kings of yore.
