Rig Veda 10.59.7

May Earth restore to us our vital spirit, may Heaven the Goddess and mid-air restore it. May Soma give us once again our body, and Pūṣan show the Path of peace and comfort.

What is the context of this verse? And does this talk about rebirth?

1 Answer 1


Please review the following hindi translation of the same verse Rig Veda 10.59.7:

enter image description here

Which basically translates differently to what you posted, it says:

Earth, space and mid-air again provides us the vital energy (prana), somdev again provides us the physical ability and pushadev that feeds everything provides us compassionate voice, so that we are blessed in every way.

So, it doesn't talk anything about rebirth.

  • Which word here is translating to physical ability? What could be the reason for difference of choices? Jun 7, 2019 at 4:54
