Hymns of the Atharva Veda, by Ralph T.H. Griffith, , at sacred-texts.com
1Come as home-guardians, saving us from foemen, guarding our
living creatures and our bodies,
Come to the house to give us seed and offspring:
2Whatever with Indra ye be faring, Asvins, or resting in one
dwelling-place with Vāyu,
In concord with the Ribhus or Ādityas, or standing still in
3When 1, O Asvins, call on you to-day that I may gather strength,
Or as all-conquering might in war, be that the Asvins' noblest
4Now come, ye Asvins, hitherward: here are oblations set for
These Soma draughts to aid Yadu and Turvasa, these offered
you mid Kanva's sons.
5Whatever healing balm is yours, Nāsatyas near or far away,
Therewith, great Sages, grant a home to Vatsa and to Vimāda.
