हे दीप! धर्मं क्षेत्रीय दीप
Translated in English by:
Dr. Abhinav Raina
O LAMP! The Lamp of the Dharma Kshetra
Tell me about your kinship with the Fire,
and how it did develop.
What prompts you to be Dhananjaya
----the Arjuna of Mahabharata?
Are you not satisfied with the flame you have in your own being
to illumine the dark space in a holding?
Your nature is to lead---, from darkness to light.
You are Arjuna--the Partha.
Fire is for maintaining our body strength.
The preparation of food depends on the ignition of fire.
It saves life against the cold waves of frozen winter.
But let us know why you want to be Fire,
when you are an enlightening lamp.
Dense forests need you to give life to the soil,
purely to bring back the new plants after they are grown old
and reduced to ashes by you.
Why you seem to handle the Gandeeva missile?
Is it essential to hold the Gandeeva?
Nay, its aim is annihilate Duryodhana.
You need to identify him.
His actions are governed by Uncle Shakuni.
He was the embodiment of Ego
-the worst ego created in him by Karan.
Karan being a great philanthropist,the son of Indra ,
was instrumental to ignite the Agni of False ego in Duryodhana.
O Arjuna! You have to become Surya the Effulgent Sun.
As the Sun you have every potential in sharing strength and light
to the world of existence.
Please do not allow Rahu
--- the eclipse to be born again and again
to disturb the natural cosmic phenomenon.
Then you need to be Chanakya,
who evolved from a lamp to the effulgent sun.
I pray for it--,
O Burning lamp! Keep on burning and burning.
