Prayer to Agni Dev
From Hindupedia, the Hindu Encyclopedia
Translated by P. R. Ramachander
Fire (Agni Dev) acts as a bridge between this ordinary world and the Gods. Symbolically the lamp is lit and kept in the house. Here is a prayer addressed to the lamp (deepa):
Shubham karothi kalyanam, aarogyam, dhana sampadam, Shathru budhi vruddhi vinasaya deepa jyothi namo nama.
Salutations and salutations,
To the holy flame of the lamp,
Which bestows on me all that is good,
Health as well as wealth,
And destroys all my enemies.
