liṅgabhūyastvāt, taddhi balīyaḥ, tadapi || 44 ||
liṅga-bhūyastvāt—On account of the abundance of indicatory marks; tat—it (an indicatory mark); hi—for; balīyaḥ—is stronger; tat—that; api—also.
44. On account of the abundance of indicatory marks (the fires of the mind, speech, etc. in the Agnirahasya of the Vajasaneyins do not form part of the sacrifice), for it (an indicatory mark) is stronger (than the context). That also (has been stated by Jaimini).
In Agnirahasya of the Satapatha Brahmana certain fires, named after mind, speech, eyes, etc. are mentioned. The question is whether these form part of the sacrifice mentioned therein, or form an independent Vidya. The Sutra says that in spite of the prima facie view which arises from the context, these constitute an independent Vidya. For there are many indicatory marks to show that these fires form a Vidya; and indicatory marks are more forceful than the context, according to Purva Mimamsa.
