Arathi

"Aa-rathi" is a Sanskrit word meaning "The Close". "Aa-rathi" is the prayer song sung at the close of each Bhajan session. The "Aa-rathi" at the close of Sai Bhajans is really of profound significance.

The camphor flame has itself has been endowed by Bhagavan Baba with the value and validity of a grand prayer, the culmination of the hour-long yearning of all devoted hearts. Bhagavan says, "While it is being waved pray - O Lord! Make the allotted span of my life as pure, as fragrant and as transparent as camphor; let it consume itself in the fire, scattering light and the warmth of love to all around me and at the end of it all, let there be nothing left of me (as the camphor leaves no ashes or residue) to render me liable to another sojourn amidst pleasure and pain." This is the prayer with which every session of homage to Sai can appropriately close.

The ‘Arathi’ song is composed in the Telugu Language. Here is the English script of the song along with Translation, each stanza wise:
