athartvijo yajamānaḥ sadasyāḥ
kakubhy udīcyāṁ prasamīkṣya reṇum
tamaḥ kim etat kuta etad rajo ’bhūd
iti dvijā dvija-patnyaś ca dadhyuḥ
atha—at that time; ṛtvijaḥ—the priests; yajamānaḥ—the chief person performing the sacrifice (Dakṣa); sadasyāḥ—all the persons assembled in the sacrificial arena; kakubhi udīcyām—in the northern direction; prasamīkṣya—seeing; reṇum—the dust storm; tamaḥ—darkness; kim—what; etat—this; kutaḥ—from where; etat—this; rajaḥ—dust; abhūt—has come; iti—thus; dvijāḥ—the brāhmaṇas; dvija-patnyaḥ—the wives of the brāhmaṇas; ca—and; dadhyuḥ—began to speculate.
