Rig veda - Boats, Birds and Chariots
Type of Spiritual Experience
Very short extract, but it gives the general idea of the symbolism, the first paragraph is repeated - it is in another observation, but is needed for context
A description of the experience
The Rig Veda [translated by Wendy Doniger]
Tugra had left Bhujya in the cloud of water as a dead man leaves behind his wealth. You brought him back, Asvins, in ships that were alive, that swam through the realm of air far from water.
With birds that flew on for three nights and three days you, Nasatyas, brought Bhujya to the far shore of the ocean, to the edge of wetness, in three chariots with six horses and a hundred feet.
