Aarti is an integral part of every puja and yagna. Aarti is performed using a oil lamp and rotating it in clockwise direction infront of the deity. After the Aarti is concluded, all the devotees take the Aarti on them as a sign on blessing.
The lighting of ‘diya’ or lamp at home is considered highly auspiciousness as it brings prosperity and good health. The daily evening lamp lit at home also gives us an opportunity to ponder over one’s omissions and commissions in a day.
The lamp has its own special place in SanatanVaidikHindu Dharma. It is a form and a symbol of Tej (Absolute fire principle). The lamp is invoked as, ‘à¤¤à¤®à¤¸à¥‹ à¤®à¤¾ à¤œà¥à¤¯à¥‹à¤¤à¤¿à¤°à¥à¤—à¤®à¤¯ à¥¤’ meaning the lamp leads us from darkness towards light. It burns only to give message of peace and light to the man. This is its greatness. In this Satsang we shall try to understand what the scriptures have to say about the lamp. Amongst the articles of puja the lamp is an important article. The following mantra which is recited during the ritual of puja explains its significance.
Meaning: O Deity of lamp, you are of the form of Bramhan (the absolute truth). You are full of radiance. You never wither. Please bestow me health and good progeny and please fulfill my wishes.
Make: Made of thick brass with long lasting finish. Special hand held aarti diya. Both round and long cotton wicks can be used with this lamp. Brass is well known for its grasping capacity. It grasps the divine spirit upto 30%, when compared to other metals. The spiritual vibrations are attracted towards these shining idols easily.
