Hindu Preachers and Teachers
From him come the scriptures, chants, and prayers, Religious rites and sacrificial gifts; From him come work, time, and givers of gifts, And all things under the sun and moon. From him come the gods of the natural world, Men, beasts, and birds, and food to nourish them; From him come all spiritual disciplines, Meditation, truth, faith, and purity.
