PRAYER WHILE LIGHTING A LAMP:

(apologies for the noise on the background)


शुभं करोति कल्याणमारोग्यं धनसंपदा ।

शत्रुबुद्धिविनाशाय दीपज्योतिर्नमोऽस्तुते ॥


śubham karōti kalyāṇam 

ārōgyam dhana saṁpadaḥ |

śatrubuddhi vināśāya 

dīpa jyōtir namōstutē ||



दीपज्योतिः परब्रह्म दीपज्योतिर्जनार्दनः ।

दीपो हरतु मे पापं दीपज्योतिर्नमोऽस्तुते ॥


dīpajyotih parabrahma 

dīpajyotir janārdanah |

dīpo haratu me pāpaṁ 

dīpa jyōtir namōstutē ||


The accurate meaning of the mantra is: "I fold my hands before the light that brings prosperity, auspiciousness, good health, abundance of wealth and destruction of the enemy's intellect". Here, Darkness symbolizes enemy's intellect and with the arrival of light, darkness disappears. Likewise, light (God's Grace) destroys darkness (enemy's intellect). 


Salutations to the Light of the Lamp 

The Light of the Lamp represents the Supreme Brahman, the Light of the Lamp represents Janardhana (Sri Vishnu),

Let the Light of the Lamp Remove My Sins; 

Salutations to the Light of the Lamp.
