XII 1 Hymn to goddess Earth Part 13
At that time, o goddess, when, spreading forth,
named broad by the gods, thou didst extend to greatness,
then prosperity did enter thee,
and thou didst fashion the four regions.
As dust, a steed did she, as soon as she was born,
scatter these people, that dwelt upon the earth,
She the lovely one, the leader,
the guardian of the world, that holds the trees and plants.
She whom Visvakarman (the creator of all) did search out
by means of oblations, when she had entered the surging atmosphere,
she, the vessel destined to nourish, deposited in a secret place,
became visible to the gods.
Thou art the scatterer of men,
the broadly expanding Aditi that yields milk according to wish.
What is wanting in thee,
Pragapati, first-born of the divine order,
shall supply for thee
