KAAND`A 7, ANUVAAKAM 10, SUUKTAM 109 E
Yee noo dyuvee dhanam idam cakaara,
Yoo akshaan`aan`am glahanam s`eeshan`am ca,
Sa noo deevoo havir idam jushaan`oo,
Gandharvee bhi hi sadhaamaadam madeeshee.
The God who brought us riches and made us glorious (by defeating the wealth of the other competing gamblers),
The God who won others' dice and fetched them for us,
Let that God enjoy these sacrificial oblations.
We also relish the oblations along with the Gandharvas and become inebriated.
Gandharvas : Believed to be a class of celestial demy-Gods. Historians believe these to be a tribe in Kandahar (Afghanistan).
