On Skambha Fervour rests, the worlds and Holy Law repose on
Skambha, I clearly know that all of thee is set within Indra!
On Indra Fervour rests, on him the worlds and Holy Law
Indra, I clearly know as all established in Skambha.
Be reverence paid to him, that highest Brahma, whose base is
Earth, his belly Air, who made the sky to be his head.
Homage to highest Brahma, him whose eye is Surya and the
Moon who groweth young and new again, him who made
Agni for his mouth.
Homage to highest Brahma, him whose two life-breaths were
The Angirasas his sight: who made the regions be his means of
Skambha set fast these two, the earth and heaven, Skambha
maintained the ample air between them.
