6. Those same first two days, and a Mahavrata Atiratra,—therewith Marutta Avikshita, the Ayogava king, once performed sacrifice; whence the Maruts became his guards-men, Agni his chamberlain, and the Vishve Devah his counsellors: it is of this that the Gatha sings,—“The Maruts dwelt as guards-men in Marutta Avikshita’s house, Agni as his chamberlain, and the Vishve Devah as his counsellors.” And, verily, the Maruts become the guards-men, Agni the chamberlain, and the Vishve Devah the counsellors of him who performs the horse-sacrifice.
