(SKU: LSB1009016) Oil lamps have a significant role in the Hindu religion and are found both at home and in Hindu temples. Single wick lamps, such as this, are commonly used for puja (worship) in the family home. Every morning these lamps are lit using ghee, or oil, and a cotton wick, in the belief that the illumination from the lamp removes darkness and ignorance and in burning upwards the light reflects the attainment of knowledge. The light from the flame also allows the worshipper to see their god more clearly as the lamp is usually lit alongside an image of the deity.

Some also believe that the oil or ghee represents negative energy and the wick, the ego. In lighting the lamp, the ego and negative spirits are removed from the soul. These diyas are large and can hold enough oil(usually ghee) to keep the wick burning for several hours. Made in brass metal, these diyas are durable and will likely last for ever. After every puja or aarti, just remove the burnt oil and wick remains, wash it with water, and it is ready for reuse. Get this diya for performing puja and aarti the Hindu way.
