Karpoora deepam thozhuthu nilkumbol
Ullathil engo nyaan mohichu
Amme devi, amrita varshiniKarpooram aayirunengil
Nyaan aa karpooram aayirunengil...
Here's a rough translation:
As I prayed before the lamps, filled with burning camphor, I found myself wishing that I was the camphor in the lamp... (Gosh, it is hard to translate!)
I consider the camphor to be a symbol of surrender. It burns itself in the fire and thus completely vanishes. In a similar vein, I shall seek refuge in the Lord and surrender to His Will.
And so, I shall continue my climb. :)
