‘By this (yajña), serve the devas1; let the devas serve you. Reciprocating services (thus), you will attain the highest good.’
By this yajña, worship the devas (minor divine functionaries) who constitute My body, and whose Ātmā, I am. For, it is declared further on;-
‘(Aham hi etc.,) i.e., I indeed am the Enjoyer of all the Yajñās, and the Lord etc.’ (ix-24)
Let the devas, -of whom I am Ātmā,-worshipped by you, grant you your prayers for food, water etc., (i.e., general prosperity and abundance).
Mutually exchanging services thus, you shall reap the highest good, moksha2.
