Hymns of the Atharva Veda, by Ralph T.H. Griffith, [1895] 1There was a roaming Vrātya. He roused Prajāpati to action. 2 Prajāpati beheld gold in himself and engendered it. 3 That became unique, that became distinguished, that became    great, that became excellent, that became Devotion, that be-    came holy Fervour, that became Truth: through that he was    born. 4 He grew, he became great, he became Mahādeva. 5 He gained the lordship of the Gods. He became Lord. 6 He became Chief Vrātya. He held a bow, even that Bow of   Indra. 7 His belly is dark-blue, his back is red. 8 With dark-blue he envelops a detested rival, with red he pierces    the man who hates him: so the theologians say.
