Rig Veda, tr. by Ralph T.H. Griffith,  1. MAY Varuṇa with guidance straight, and Mitra lead us, he who knows, And Aryaman in accord with Gods. 2 For they are dealers forth of wealth, and, not deluded, with their might Guard evermore the holy laws. 3 Shelter may they vouchsafe to us, Immortal Gods to mortal men, Chasing our enemies away. 4 May they mark out our paths to bliss, Indra, the Maruts, Pūṣan, and Bhaga, the Gods to be adored. 5 Yea, Pūṣan, Viṣṇu, ye who run your course, enrich our hymns with kine; Bless us with all prosperity. 6 The winds waft sweets, the rivers pour sweets for the man who keeps the Law So may the plants be sweet for us. 7 Sweet be the night and sweet the dawns, sweet the terrestrial atmosphere; Sweet be our Father Heaven to us. 8 May the tall tree be full of sweets for us, and full of sweets the Sun: May our milch-kine be sweet for us. 9 Be Mitra gracious unto us, and Varuṇa and Aryaman: Indra, Bṛhaspati be kind, and Viṣṇu of the mighty stride.
