A description of the experience

The Atharvaveda - translated by Maurice Bloomfield

That which has caused thee to miscarry
Do we drive away from thee,
that very thing do we deposit outside of thee
away
in a far place.

Into thy womb shall enter a seed
as an arrow into a quiver
May a child be born there
a child ten months old!

A child shall you produce
and a child shall be born
Thou shalt be the mother of sons
of those who are born
and those whom thou shalt bear

Pragapati's work do I perform for thee
may the seed enter into thy womb
Obtain thou, woman,
a child who shall bring prosperity to thee
And bring thou prosperity to them

And plants whose father was the sky
Whose mother the earth
whose root the heavenly ocean
May those divine herbs
Aid thee
And bless thee with a child.
