HYMN CII Parjanya – Rig Veda – Book 7

English Translation

Translated by Ralph T.H. Griffith

1 SING forth and laud Parjanya, son of Heaven, who sends the gift of rain
May he provide our pasturage.

2 Parjanya is the God who forms in kine, in mares, in plants of earth,
And womankind, the germ of life.

3 Offer and pour into his mouth oblation rich in savoury juice:
May he for ever give us food.
