Mumbai: Most people in India light an oil lamp every morning and evening at their homes and worship their deity to seek blessings. In Hinduism (traditionally known as Sanatana Dharma), symbolism plays a vital role in helping mankind understand the fundamental principles and philosophy of life.

In this post, we will tell you why you must light an oil lamp at home every day. Lighting of an oil lamp symbolises prosperity and the triumph of light over darkness. But it has profound meaning.

Here’s taking a look at some of them:

By lighting a lamp in front of your deity at home, you remind yourself that truth is where God is and light is where knowledge is.

The wick used in the lamp represents our ego while the oil symbolises the impurities in our mind. By lighting the lamp, we surrender our shortcomings and vices to attain truth and get further close to God.

You now know what a diya or a lamp signifies. By lighting it, you will give yourself more opportunities to thank God for giving you life that’s precious and priceless.

A lamp can be used as a token for welcoming Goddess Lakshmi to the house. Thus you can symbolically remove darkness from your house to invite wealth and prosperity.

We, we do live in an era where we have electric lights but an oil lamp has its own beauty and charm. Besides this, by lighting an oil lamp, you allow yourself the time to spend some time with the divine and have a silent conversation with him. The lamp can be a witness to your conversations.
