vaitānike — offering of oblations; karmaṇi — the activity; yat — of the fire-gods; nāmabhiḥ — by the names; brahma-vādibhiḥ — by impersonalist brāhmaṇas; āgneyyaḥ — for Agni; iṣṭayaḥ — sacrifices; yajñe — in the sacrifice; nirūpyante — are the objective; agnayaḥ — the forty-nine fire-gods; tu — but; te — those.
These forty-nine fire-gods are the beneficiaries of the oblations offered in the Vedic sacrificial fire by impersonalist brāhmaṇas.
Impersonalists who perform Vedic fruitive sacrifices are attracted to the various fire-gods and offer oblations in their name. The forty-nine fire-gods are described herewith.
