An invitation to Indra and Varuna

1True to laws, Indra Varuna, drinkers of the juice, quaff this
   pressed Soma which shall give you rapturous joy!
  Let sacrifice, your car, to entertain the Gods, approach its rest-
   ing-place that they may drink thereof.
2O Indra Varuna, drink your fill, ye heroes, of this effectual and
   sweetest Soma.
  This juice was shed by us that ye might quaff it. On this trimmed
   grass be seated and rejoice you.
