Description
Excerpt: V, 22. Charm against takman (fever) and related diseases. 1. May Agni drive the takman away from here, may Soma, the press?stone, and Varuna, of tried skill; may the altar, the straw (upon the altar), and the brightly?flaming fagots (drive him away)! Away to naught shall go the hateful powers! 2. Thou that makest all men sallow, inflarning them like a searing fire, even now, O takman, thou shalt become void of strength: do thou now go away down, aye, into the depths! The takman that is spotted, covered Nvith spots, like reddish sediment, him thou, (O plant) of unremitting potency, drive away down below! 4. Having made obeisance to the takman, I cast him down below: let him, the champion of Sakambhara, return again to the Mahavrishas! 5. His home is with the Mugavants, his home with the Mahavrishas. From the moment of thy birth thou art indigenous with the Balhikas. 6. O takman, vy?la, vi gada, vyanga, hold off (thy missile) far! Seek the gadabout slave?girl, strike her with thy bolt! 7. O takman, go to the Mugavants, or to the Balhikas farther away! Seek the lecherous Sudra female: her, O takman, give a good shaking?up! 8. Go away to the Mahavrishas and the Mugavants, thy kinsfolk, and consume them! Those (regions) do we bespeak for the takman, or these regions here other (than ours). 9. (If) in other regions thou dost not abide, mayest thou that art powerful take pity on us! Takman, now, has become eager: he will go to the Balhikas.
