Awaken us from ignorance
Behold, Usha... the beautiful dawn...
Heaven’s darling daughter
decked in pure pious white,
the goddess of worldly wealth in its entirety....
has slowly emerged in her magnificence
and vermillion splendor
to brighten the eastern hemisphere!
Oh, most lovely and lucky lady
of golden hue and luster,
spread your light
here and everywhere
to awaken us from the deep inertia of ignorance.
