The importance of lighting a diya during worship can be traced back to Vedas. Light symbolizes knowledge and darkness,ignorance.The Lord is the “Knowledge Principle” (chaitanya) who is the source, the enlivener 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 achievements can be accomplished.Hence, we light the lamp to bow down to knowledge as the greatest of all forms of wealth.We therefore keep a lamp lit during all auspicious occasions as a witness to our thoughts and actions.
The oil or ghee in the lamp symbolizes our vaasanas or negative tendencies and the wicked, the ego. When lit by spiritual knowledge, the vaasanas get slowly exhausted and the ego too finally perishes. The flame of a lamp always burns upwards. Similarly we should acquire such knowledge as to take us towards higher ideals.
This artistic diya with very fine design can be used in prayer ceremonies. Vertical wicks can be used with this lamp.
Design: Made of thick brass with long lasting finish.
