”Of truth there exist many riches. The vision of truth smashes the crooked, and the signal call of truth bored open deaf ears; [...] and by truth the cows approached truth. (Whoever) holds fast to truth, just he wins truth. The explosive force of truth hastens swiftly as it seeks cattle. For truth the two (worlds) are wide, ample, and deep; for truth do they, as the two highest milk-cows, give their milk.“  ––– R̥gveda IV 23 (319), 8–10, Indra & r̥ta; tsl. Jamison & Brereton 2014: 596
