This comprises of 11 parts. All the good things of the earth are there. For what purpose? With these transient goods of the world you can perform sacrifices unto the Gods and reach their abodes. So as to serve in them". Thereby you can rise in the scale of beings, from a man develop into a God.
Go a step further still. Understand the secret of sacrifice that the Creator Himself is performing with regard to His creation. It consists of 56 materials. Brief Summary of What it Asks for The 4th is the "Food and Drink" Anuvaka which craves for grains that sustain urkcha may soonruthaa cha may..
The 5th Anuvaka marks off the real bent of Chamakam by asking for the earth and treasures on it and inside it. The 6th is shortest called "Ardhendram" in which the names of 20 Vedic gods to whom sacrifices are usually offered are coupled with that of Indra asAgnischa may indrascha may.
The 7th indicates 29 vessels used for Soma sacrifices. The 9th prays for the main sacrifices including the famous Ashvamedha or horse-sacrifice along with their accompaniments and the 4 Vedas. The 10th Anuvaka is the great dedicatory prayer.
It mentions of 31 objects. It recalls the days of Vedic lifestyle of agriculture based economy prevalent at that time. And him who has three eyes, and Pray and request, to move us away from the catch of death, like the cucumber separated from its stalk, and firmly put us in the path of salvation.
Oh ye Gods Agni and Vishnu May both of you bear goodwill to me. Let these words of praise of mine magnify you. A sanskrit sloka runs: "The Body is the root or source of all Dharmas. The Hindus attach greatest importance and regard to purity of food.
This refers not only to the material external purity of food, but its inner one. Once dedicated to Gods, the food becomes nectar and lead the eater to heaven and immortality. Also it asks to be blessed with mellifluous voice, intonations of Vedic hymns, sound mind, good appetite and relish for food etc.
The first 2 in the list request prominence and overlordship over men. Three and four curiously enough seeks for internal and external anger.
As Aristotle puts it, "a man who is not getting justifiable anger is considered a coward". A deeper consideration will show that there are occasions when not to get angry argues cowardice.
This type of anger by Rama is commendable according to Chamakam. Besides this, the myth of believes by Westerners that Hinduism is an austere unworldly religion is smashed here by asking Bhukthi and Muthki, Shradda, healthy sports, well-stocked and furnished life, a good past and future.
This shows the ascendancy of mind and its desires. It can be noted here that words occur almost in pairs, the second completing and taking up what is stated in the first, are more usually balancing this world and the next, the material and the spiritual. To acquire this, men wanders all over the world to keep feeding the tiny stomach.
Starting with food in general, 38 things are prayed for here, which can be classified as "Food and Drink Anuvakam" or the "Grains Anuvakam" in its special aspect.
Grains, Millets and legume form the kings among them, the coarser and the smaller are also mentioned. The earth and all things standing on it like stone, clay, sands, hills and mountains and all trees, creepers and vegetation on it 1 to 6 ; and the animals inside it 7 to 12 ; fire and waters 13 to 14 are asked for.
Grains cultivated and uncultivated; and animals domestic and wild are next mentioned. For what? Then the sacrifices are rather expensive affairs. Wealth ancestral and self-earned, and the blessing of sons who can earn for themselves, and commodious houses well-furnished and well-stocked are hence listed in detail. Agni and Indra; Soma and Indra and so on. Either their actual presence in the particular sacrifice is prayed for or their grace and acceptance of the sacrifices.
The idea of invoking two Gods in a single hymn, or in a single sacrifice to ensure greater benefits, is a recurring one in the Vedas. Why is Indra coupled with every God? Indra obtains the greater portion of the offerings than the other Gods individually. As a result, Indra is considered Yajaman - the person performing the sacrifice in the head.
India is King of Gods and as such gets as tribute half the portion of the sacrificial offerings made to the Gods. Hence, the title of this is "Arthendram" or invocation to the Gods coupled with Indra. The performer attains to the results of the sacrifices by sacrificing to the instruments.
The instruments embody the form of the sacrifice. The vessels Amsu, etc. This point is stressed here. This section fits well with the human thought that first he is asking for worldly pleasures and enjoyment, then slowly ascending to the level of Godliness. It offers an illuminating commentary on life in Vedic times which seems to have revolved on the twin axes of agriculture and sacrifices.
Agriculture and home life revolved on cows and bulls. Items 21 to 30 are more or less a repetition of items 13 to 29 of the 1st Anuvaakam with some omissions. It prays for 41 things; a numerals of which 1 to 17 are odd, and 18 to 29 even and taking up the strain of food with which it began in first section, it repeats the cycle of food order, but it does not stop short as before, but traces it to the ultimate root causes.
It prays for food No. What do the numbers stand for? Similarly, he performs Homa mentioning even numbers till 44, for the Jagadi metre hath 44 letters. The prayer mentioned here reflects Vedic thoughts of positive thinking. In a nut shell, the Prayer here throws open its mind in calling for peaceful and serene atmosphere in the world.
Let our thoughts, actions and living be peaceful. Let our speech, hearing and praise be sweet; let this earth not cause me any trouble. Manu was the sacrificer. Let me think sweet thoughts; let me perform sweet actions which bear sweet fruits; let me bear sweet offerings; let my speech and praise be sweet; let me utter words which sound sweet unto the Gods; let me utter sweet words unto men who would lend their ears.
Let the Gods illumine me and render my speech sweet. The cessation of all these and the attainment of that peace which passeth understanding, which is Brahman is prayed for.
