19. But let him rather make it just of man’s size: he thus leaves no room for another;—broader (variyas) behind, for what is (left) behind is offspring: he thus makes the (dead man's) offspring more excellent (variyas);—and broader on the left (north or higher, uttara) side, for the later (uttara) are offspring: he thus makes the offspring more excellent. Having attended to this, he encloses it with cords twisted (and extended) in the non-sunwise way; for the (sacrificial) performance connected with the Fathers is done in the non-sunwise way.
