prativastoraha dyubhiḥ ||

English Translation

Translated by Ralph T.H. Griffith

1. THIS spotted Bull hath come, and sat before the Mother in the east,
Advancing to his Father heaven.

2 Expiring when he draws his breath, she moves along the lucid spheres:
The Bull shines out through all the sky.

3 Song is bestowed upon the Bird: it rules supreme through thirty realms
Throughout the days at break of morn.
