Indra. The Lights are Shining in the Sky | Rig Veda 1.6

They who stand round him as he moves harness the bright, the ruddy Steed the lights are shining in the sky.

Book 1. Hymn 6. ´Indra


1 They who stand round him as he moves harness the bright, the ruddy Steed

The lights are shining in the sky.

2 On both sides to the car they yoke the two bay coursers dear to him,

Bold, tawny, bearers of the Chief.

3 Thou, making light where no light was, and form, O men: where form was not,

Wast born together with the Dawns.

4 Thereafter they, as is their wont, threw off the state of babes unborn,

Assuming sacrificial names.

5 Thou, Indra, with the Tempest-Gods, the breakers down of what is firm,

Foundest the kine even in the cave.

6 Worshipping even as they list, singers laud him who findeth wealth,

The far-renowned, the mighty One.

7 Mayest thou verily be seen coming by fearless Indra's side:

Both joyous, equal in your sheen.

8 With Indra's well beloved hosts, the blameless, hastening to heaven,

The sacrificer cries aloud.

9 Come from this place, O Wanderer, or downward from the light of heaven:

Our songs of praise all yearn for this.

10 Indra we seek to give us help, from here, from heaven above the earth,

Or from the spacious firmament.
