Rudhirasrāva nivartana dhamanībandhana sūkta –
Hymn for homeostasis in haemorrhage occurring due to rupture of capillaries or blood vessels :-


Hemorrhage means escape of blood from blood vessels into surrounding tissue. When a vessel is injured, hemorrhage continues as long as the vessel remains open and the pressure in it exceeds the pressure outside of it. Normally, coagulation closes the vessel and stops the bleeding.
Uncontrolled hemorrhage can result from anticoagulant therapy, hemophilia, or severe blood-vessel damage, leading to excessive blood loss.

Followed by mentioning of the element of lineage of one’s self (like ——-gotra jātasya, ———–nāmadheyasya,). And finally, followed by mentioning of the element of purpose like the desire or need or cause for chanting the mantra.

The red blood carrying (lohitavāsasa:) veins (hirā) in a women (yoṣito) get stabilised and stop (amūryā yanti) from bleeding, to avoid getting bereft of vigour and stamina (hatavarcasa:),  as in the manner (iva) in which a sister (jāmaya)would stop leaving the house (tiṣṭhantu) without the company of her brother (abhrātara). || 1.17.1 ||

Let the blood flowing through the downward moving (तिष्ठावरे), upward moving (tiṣṭha para) and the (uta) one present inbetween the above two (tiṣṭha madhyame), along with the smaller (kaniṣṭhikā) and bigger sozed dhamanis get stabilised from flowing out excessively  (tiṣṭhādid dhamanirmahi). ||1.17.2 ||

Let the  hundreds of arteries (śatasya dhaman); the thousands of vein  (sahasrasya hirāṇām) and  those present in between (madhyamā) along with the ones present in the end of the body like the end artery (or terminal artery) simultaneously (imā: sākamantā:)  by force  stop the bleeding and get stabilised (asthurin – araṃsata). ||1.17.3 ||
[Dictionary meaning:-  ināṃ=  by force; asthu =  √स्था (√sthā) –    stopping, being restrained / nivṛtt; hirāṇām = veins; dhamanīnāṃ = arteries; imā: = all these; sākam = ind.(prob. fr. 7. sa- añc-; see sāci-) together, jointly, at the same time, simultaneously; araṃsata  = to cause to stay, stop, set at rest.]

Hey great channels (bṛhati) carrying the blood, who are spread across the entire body , curved (tortuous) like the dhanush (bow), bestow this person with quick (su) wellness (kam) by stopping the flow (tiṣṭhate layatā)of blood. ||1.17.4 ||
