Simple

vāyur yamo ’gnir varuṇaḥ śaśāṅkaḥ
prajāpatis tvaṁ prapitāmahaś ca

‘Vāyu, and Yama, Agni and Varuṇa, and the moon art Thou; the Grand-sire and the Great Grand-sire’.

Thou art the Great Grand-sire: The Prajāpatis are the Patriarchs of all creatures. The Father of the Prajāpatis is Hiraṇyagarbha, and therefore Thou art the Grand-Sire= Pitāmaha. Of Hiraṇyagarbha also, Thou art the Father and therefore the great Grand-sire of creatures=Prapitāmaha; the sense being that every term such as Pitāmaha, is Thy name by the fact of Thy being the indwelling Soul of all viz., Hiraṇyagarbha etc.,
