    Lead us along the right path..Agni
    At the conclusion of oblations to the fire in the vedic way yajnas, homams etc, we pray to Agni requesting him to lead us in the path of righteousness and also to destroy our propensities to tread the sinful path..
    The mantram is from Rigvedam first Mandalam.. The mantram is also found as the concluding mantra of Isha or Ishavasya upanishad.
    अग्ने नय सुपथा राये अस्मान् विश्वानि देव वयुनानि विद्वान्।
    युयोध्यस्मज्जुहुरणमेनो भूयिष्ठाम् ते नमौक्तिम् विधेम॥
    ऋग्वेदम् १ -१८९ - १-२

    Oh Lord Agni, we praise you with lots and lots of praises and nice words.
    May you be pleased to lead us in the fair and righteous path for the enjoyment of all our actions and endevours. Blessed Lord, you are knowing or keenly watching all our activities and we pray that you may be pleased to destroy our tendencies to tread the crooked or deceitful path and save us from our sins.
