What my nani used to chant whisperingly under her breath on lighting her diya at the alter during dawn and dusk:
शुभं कुरुत्वम कल्याणमारोग्यं धनसंपदः।
(Salutations to the light that brings auspiciousness, health and prosperity)
(Which destroys inimical feelings, salutations to the light of the lamp)
दीपज्योतिः परब्रह्म दीपज्योतिर्जनार्दनः।
(The light of the lamp is supreme being, the light of the lamp represents the protector of the devotee or Lord Vishnu)
दीपो हरतु मे पापं संध्यादीपनमोस्तुते॥
(Let the light of the lamp wipe away my sins, salutations to the light of the lamp)
Amazingly she never spoke Sanskrit, but recited it when she communicated with her maker!
