2. ‘He who knows this Dakṣiṇāgni fire and worships it thus has all his sins removed, and he attains the world of the Dakṣiṇāgni fire. He lives a long and bright life, and his descendants do not perish. In this world and the next, we look after that person who knows this fire and worships it thus’.
Saḥ yaḥ, he who; etam evam vidvān, knowing this in this way; upāste, [and] worships; apahate pāpakṛtyām, he destroys his sins; lokī bhavati, becomes a dweller in the world of the god of fire; sarvam āyuḥ eti, lives the full range of his life; jyok jīvati, he lives a bright life; asya āvarapuruṣāḥ, his descendants; na kṣīyante, do not perish [i.e., his line is never broken]; asmin ca loke amuṣmin ca, in this world and also in the other world; vayam tam upabhuñjāmaḥ, we will look after him; yaḥ etam evam vidvān upāste, he who knows this [fire] thus and worships it. Iti dvādaśaḥ khaṇḍaḥ, here ends the twelfth section.
