Rig Veda Book 1 Verse 15 is dedicated to Indra but mentions someone or something called Ritu (Ṛtu). Now Ritu generally means season and Reet means the cosmic order and am confused which of these is being referred to here:
1 O INDRA drink the Soma juice with Ṛtu; let the cheering drops Sink deep within, which settle there.
2 Drink from the Purifier's cup, Maruts, with Ṛtu; sanctify The rite, for ye give precious gifts.
3 O Neṣṭar, with thy Dame accept our sacrifice; with Ṛtu drink, For thou art he who giveth wealth.
4 Bring the Gods, Agni; in the three appointed places set them down: Surround them, and with Ṛtu drink.
5 Drink Soma after the Ṛtus, from the Brāhmaṇa's bounty: undissolved, O Indra, is thy friendship's bond.
6 Mitra, Varuṇa, ye whose ways are firm—a Power that none deceives—, With Ṛtu ye have reached the rite.
7 The Soma-pressers, fain for wealth, praise the Wealth-giver in the rite, In sacrifices praise the God.
8 May the Wealth-giver grant to us riches that shall be far renowned. These things we gain, among the Gods.
9 He with the Ṛtu fain would drink, Wealth-giver, from the Neṣṭar's bowl. Haste, give your offering, and depart.
10 As we this fourth time, Wealth-giver, honour thee with the Ṛtus, be A Giver bountiful to us.
11 Drink ye the meath, O Aśvins bright with flames, whose acts are pure, who with Ṛtus accept the sacrifice.
12 With Ṛtu, through the house-fire, thou, kind Giver, guidest sacrifice: Worship the Gods for the pious man.
So my question is Who or what is the Ṛtu mentioned in this particular hymn according to the Vedic commentaries.
