Atharvaveda - VI 142 Blessing during the sowing of seed



Type of spiritual experience

A description of the experience

The Atharvaveda - translated by Maurice Bloomfield

Raise thyself up
Grow thick by thy own might
O grain
Burst every vessel
The lightning in the heavens shall not destroy thee
Nor the rain

When we invoke thee o god of grain
and thou dost listen
then do thou raise thyself up like the sky
Be inexhaustible as the sea.

Inexhaustible shall be those that attend thee
inexhaustible thy heaps
They who give thee as a present shall be inexhaustible
they who eat thee shall be inexhaustible
