In Hinduism, lighting a lamp has great religious significance and is considered as a symbol of auspiciousness. The tradition of burning lamps is more than 5000 years old. A burning lamp is considered a source of light that dispels darkness. It is also considered a symbol of knowledge. According to mythological beliefs, the darkness of ignorance is eradicated. Even in religious scriptures, it is considered very auspicious to light candles on religious occasions.
Diwali, the festival of lights, not only dispels darkness but also brings happiness, peace, and prosperity to our lives. On the auspicious occasion of Diwali, every person must light a lamp in their home to welcome and worship Goddess Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth. Used in the worship of gods and goddesses, this lamp is a blessing of happiness and prosperity.This Diwali be it clay or metal diya, buy diya lantern online to make your Diwali full of light.
There are five elements in a lamp and these five things should be brought into life this Diwali.
- Diya: (Hiranyakashyap-NarasimhaBhagwan)
Earlier, diya & lantern were made of stone, and then gradually they started being made of clay. Thereafter, metal diyas came into trend such as brass, iron, and silver. Just as we prepare the pots of lamps with care, in the same way we have to take care of our bodies.
It is believed that on the day of Diwali, Lakshmi-Narayanji comes under the rule of Bali. It is also thought to be a reason for Diwali celebrations.
The diya explains to that the inner strength becomes the foundation of light. This Diwali, take a pledge that you will take good care of your body and health.
- Wick :
Diyas have to be prepared with effort as it is the only connection between the diya and fire. Irrespective of the shape or form of the wick, it must be capable of absorbing the fire within itself.
An episode of Diwali is also related to the killing of Narakasura. When Lord Krishna killed King Narakasura, he was happy to do the favour of humanity. It was a form of Diwali.
Motivation: The wick is prepared with hard work and might. The wick spreads light, but we usually say that a lamp spreads light. Sometimes others take credit for our hard work. But we should not be disappointed but rather continue with the hard work.
- Oil/Ghee : (Govardhan)
This is the source which has to be collected to be put inside the lamp. This is the only means by which fire is generated.
Context: Lord Krishna lifted the Govardhanmountain to protect villagers against Indra. Govardhan is worshipped because it is a representative of nature.
Inspiration: Krishna explains to us through Gavardhan Puja not to misuse the means and facilities. And that power should not be abused through unfair means. Lord Indra, for example, demanded that villagers worship him or else he would destroy them with rain.
- Agni : (Ramji)
The identity of the lamp and its life is fire. If there is no fire in it, then what is the use of an extinguished lamp? Fire should be protected from wind, not extinguished by other means; it has to be fully protected.
Context: The most relevant and popular episode related to Diwali is the entry of Shri Ram into Ayodhya after killing Ravana. The sorrow of fourteen years was transformed into joy and is till-date celebrated with great pomp and show.
Inspiration: Shri Ram is a symbol of light. The message from the Agni/fire of the lamp is that the darkness within us is destroyed. This Diwali, take a pledge that no matter what the situation is, nothing can break us from the inside.
- Jyoti/Flame: (Lakshmi)
Four things are visible from the lamp, but the fifth thing is Jyoti, that is seated in the fire. The fire gets extinguished, but the flame is not extinguished. It is still visible for some time. That is why, in our scriptures, Jyoti is associated with the soul.
Inspiration: On the day of Deepawali, the meaning of worshipping Lakshmi should not be associated with money only. It means self-awakening because the light is the awakening; the light is the light that illumines the soul.
