O forefathers, come to us in this dark evening, we light your way to heaven. Having Mahaprasad, May you attain salvation on the 22 steps of the Jagannath temple of Puri

“Bada badua ho,
andhaara re aasa,
aluwa re jaa.
Baaisi pahaacha re gada gadau tha.”

(“O forefathers,
come to us in this dark evening,
we light your way to heaven.
Having Mahaprasad,
May you attain salvation on the 22 steps of the Jagannath temple of Puri”)

All the members of the Odiya family hold a bunch of jute stick in their hands and lit them from the fire from main diya i.e. the diya kept over prasad and raise the bunch towards the sky chanting the above verse.
