Prayer for the Boon of Companions in the Journey

The first verse in chapter 26 is the prayer for the boon for companions on the journey, both physical and spiritual, in which the sage spreads the knowledge among all persons as mentioned in verse 2 above.

May Agni and Pŗthivi in mutual harmony bring down for me this boon

May Vāyu and Agni, in mutual harmony, bring down for me this boon

May Āditya and Heaven, in mutual harmony, bring down for me this boon

May Waters and Varuņa, in mutual harmony, bring down for me this boon

May the Seven Assemblies and the Eighth which unites all beings fill our paths with what we desire.

May I be united with so and so. SYV (26.1)
