The Rig Veda/Mandala 2/Hymn 43
1. HERE on the right sing forth chanters of hymns of praise, even the winged birds that in due season speak. He, like: a Sama-chanter utters both the notes, skilled in the mode of Trstup and of Gayatri. 2. Thou like the chanter-priest chantest the Sama, Bird; thou singest at libations like a Brahman's son. Even as a vigorous horse when he comes near the mare, announce to us good forturue, Bird, on every side, proclaim in all directions happy luck, O Bird. 3. When singing here, O Bird. announce good luck to us, and when thou sittest still think on us with kind thoughts.
