6. And on the morrow, the second day, after those (three) offerings to Savitri have been performed in the same way, there is that same course of procedure. “Adhvaryu!” he (the Hotri) says.—“Havai hotar!” replies the Adhvaryu.—“King Yama Vaivasvata,” he (the Hotri) says, “his people are the Fathers, and they are staying here;”—old men have come thither: it is these he instructs;—“The Yajus-formulas are the Veda: this it is;” thus saying, let him go over a chapter (anuvaka) of the Yajus, as if reciting it.
