Aayurdaayakam, Walnana Arjitam

आयुर्दायाकम, वाल्नना अर्जितम
लययोगेना ईप्सितम आईटीआई दीपावली
दीपावली प्रकाश्येता खलु सर्वं!!
The translation runs as:
May the Deepawali (Diwali) take the humanity towards Eternal Light! This light is the physical light created by the earthen Lamp, for seeing around, where I do exist. May it lead me to Eternal flame and to provide me meaningful Long life, the higher Yoga of Supreme realization and grant me the boon of Spiritual illumination!
All the phonemes of the word Deepawali have been explained in the Sanskrit Sloka. The three lines are the sound structures of the term Deepawali, signifying the quintessence of the effulgence of the clay lamps ,The fourth line of the Shloka is prayer for all.
The Sanskrit word Deepavali means an array of lights that stands for victory of brightness over darkness. The festival marks the victory of good over evil, and uplifting of spiritual darkness. Symbolically it marks the homecoming of goodwill and faith after an absence, as suggested by the story of Ramayana.
