Mitra - Varuna


Mitra - Varuna upholds the Cosmic Order (Rita)

- ऋतेन ऋतमपिहितं ध्रुवं वां सूर्यस्य यत्र विमुचन्त्यश्वान् । दश शता सह तस्थुस्तदेकं देवानां श्रेष्ठं वपुषामपश्यम् ॥
O Mitra-Varuna, by the Rita (Cosmic Order) of yours (Vaam), immovable (Dhruvam) Rita is placed (Apihitam) where (Yatra) the horses (Ashvaan) of Surya (i.e. rays of Sun) are released (Vimucanti); (From where) thousands (Dasha Shataa) (of rays of the Sun emanate, there) I saw (Apashyam) that (Tad) one (Ekam) beautiful form (Vapussaam) who is the greatest (Shressttham) among the devas (Devaanaam).

- अधारयतं पृथिवीमुत द्यां मित्रराजाना वरुणा महोभिः । वर्धयतमोषधिः पिन्वतं गा अव वृष्टिं सृजतं जीरदानू ॥
[Adhaarayatam Prthiviim-Uta Dyaam Mitra-Raajaanaa Varunnaa Mahobhih | Vardhayatam-Ossadhih Pinvatam Gaa Ava Vrssttim Srjatam Jiira-Daanuu] (RV 5.62.3)
O Mitra-Varuna, you who are the kings (Raajaanaa), hold (Adhaarayatam) the Earth (Prthiviim) and (Uta) Heaven (Dyaam) by your might (Mahobhih); You (i.e. your Cosmic Order) are the prompt (Jiira) givers (Daanu) (of the gifts of Nature to man) - you make the vegetation (Ossadhiih) grow (Vardhayatam), you make the cattle (Gaa) flourish (Pinvatam) and you make the rains (Vrssttim) shower (Srjatam) downwards.
