ayājayan — they performed the sacrifice; mahā-rājam — for the great King; yājakāḥ — the sacrificial priests; deva — of demigods; varcasaḥ — possessing the power; rājasūyena — the Rājasūya; vidhi-vat — according to the prescriptions of the Vedas; pracetasam — Varuṇa; iva — as; amarāḥ — the demigods.
The priests, as powerful as gods, performed the Rājasūya sacrifice for King Yudhiṣṭhira in accordance with the Vedic injunctions, just as the demigods had previously performed it for Varuṇa.
