Diyas

We keep various kinds of beautifully crafted brass diyas and diyas stand of designs which eradicate the darkness and lighten up your poojaghar, your house and your heart with hopes and lighting up  your surrounding with positive vibes.

diyadiyodeya, divaadeepadeepam, or deepak is an oil lamp usually made from clay, with a cotton wick dipped in ghee or vegetable oils.

WHY DO WE LIGHT A DIYA?

Light symbolizes knowledge, darkness and ignorance. Lord is the “Knowledge principle” (Chaitanya), who is the source, enliven-er and the illuminator of all knowledge. Hence light is worshipped as the Lord himself.

Knowledge removes ignorance just as light removes darkness.  Also  knowledge  is a  lasting  inner  wealth  by  which  all  outer  achievement  can  be  accomplished. Hence we light the lamp to bow down to knowledge as the greatest of all forms of wealth.

Well, you might be thinking why not to light a bulb or tube light?  

Well, that too would remove darkness. But the traditional oil lamp has a further spiritual significance. The oil or ghee in the lamp symbolizes our vaasanas or negative tendencies and the wick, the ego. When lit by spiritual knowledge, the vaasanas get slowly exhausted and the ego too finally perishes.

Adding to this, the flame of a lamp always burns upwards. Similarly we should acquire such knowledge as to take us towards higher ideals.
