1. 1Knew Agni samidhā2, for the people3, coming dawn4; like milchcow5. Like the ones who call6, properly rise7, shooting up on high8 like a bird9, proper suns10, to the right place11 where there isn’t any sorrow12.
The Mandal contains 87 Sookts/hymns.
The first Sookt/hymn contains 12 Mantrs/Verses.
The person who is Agni, i.e, leads to light, should not be ignorant of his/her surroundings.
The past tense, ‘abodhi’, ‘knew’, is used here.
The warning must never be taken lightly.
It’s a serious matter.
It’s not serious for himself only.
The future of other people is also involved with it.
That is the light, Agni has and the others, who are not Agni, do not have.
He knows very well that his devotion to lead the others to light is never fruitless, even if at present it may seem so.
The dawn is coming eventually.
It will not be fruitful to the others only.
It will be fruitful to him/her self as well as a milchcow.
When someone leads others to light, he/she makes friends with them knowingly or unknowingly.
It benefits him/her eventually in this worldly life as well as in the life hereafter.
