अथ येऽस्योदञ्चो रश्मयस्ता एवास्योदीच्यो मधुनाड्योऽथर्वाङ्गिरस एव मधुकृत इतिहासपुराणं पुष्पं ता अमृता आपः ॥ ३.४.१ ॥
atha ye’syodañco raśmayastā evāsyodīcyo madhunāḍyo’tharvāṅgirasa eva madhukṛta itihāsapurāṇaṃ puṣpaṃ tā amṛtā āpaḥ || 3.4.1 ||
1. Then the northern rays of the sun are the northern honey-cells [of the beehive]. The mantras envisioned by the sages Atharvā and Aṅgirā are the bees, and the Itihāsas and Purāṇas [i.e., history and legends] are the flower. The water [from the sacrifice, such as the soma juice and other things] is the nectar [of the flower].
Atha, then; ye, that which; asya, of it [the sun]; udañcaḥ raśmayaḥ, the rays in the north; tāḥ eva, they all; asya udīcyaḥ madhunāḍyaḥ, are its northern honey-cells; atharvāṅgirasaḥ eva madhukṛtaḥ, the mantras envisioned by Atharvā and Aṅgirā are the bees; itihāsapurāṇam eva puṣpam, history and legends are the flower; tāḥ āpaḥ amṛtāḥ, the water [of the soma and other things offered as oblations] is the nectar.
