KAAND`A 7, ANUVAAKAM 9, SUUKTAM 95 (2)
Ahameena ud atisht`hapam
gaavan s`raanta sadau iva
Kurkurau iva kuujantaa
vudavantau vrikaa viva.
I am raising the lips of the enemies. Just as I chase away the barking dogs, chase the howling wolves which take away the calves from their resting mothers in cowsheds, I raise the lips of the enemies. (Here the enemy is personified in the form of a frog and by moving its lips while chanting the mantra, the performer of the ritual believes he is moving the lips of the enemy. Moving enemies' lips may, in the belief of those days, harm harm them).
