šŸ“–Valmiki Ramayana 1:49:7
ThisĀ ramĀ that is being offered to you shall now be gelded to give its testes to Indra, and though thisĀ ramĀ is deprived of its organ it will be complete and it endows complete satisfaction to you. To those humans who hereafter offer testes-lessĀ ramsĀ in sacrifices for the purpose of your gratification, you shall truly offer them plentiful and unmitigated benefits. Thus Agni, the Fire-god spoke to manes.
