132. To compel a man's love.

[Atharvān̄giras.—pan̄carcam. smaradevatākam. ānuṣṭubham: 1. 3-p. anuṣṭubh; 3. bhurij; 2, 4, 5. 3-p. mahābṛhatī; 2, 4. virāj.]

Like the two preceding hymns, not found in Pāipp. Used by Kāuç. only with its two predecessors (see under 130). The metrical definitions of the Anukr. are artificial and worthless.

Translated: Weber, Ind. Stud. v. 245; Griffith, i. 319; Bloomfield, 104, 535.
