ज्योतिषैकेषामसत्यन्ने ॥ १३ ॥
jyotiṣaikeṣāmasatyanne || 13 ||
jyotiā—By light; ekeṣām—of some; asati anne—food not being mentioned.
13. (In the text) of some (the Kanva recension) food not being mentioned (in the complementary passage referred to in the previous Sutra) (the number is made up) by ‘light’ (mentioned in the previous verse).
“That immortal Light of lights the gods worship as longevity” (Brih. 4. 4. 16).
Though food is not mentioned in the text cited in the last Sutra according to the Kanva recension of the Satapatha Brahmana, yet the four of that verse, together with ‘light’ mentioned in the text cited above, would make the ‘five people’.
