Camphor & Aarti Stands
The Aarti Diya with a handle is designed to be portable and convenient to hold during the Aarti ceremony. It is usually made of brass, copper, or other metals, and often features decorative engravings or embellishments. The lamp is filled with oil or ghee (clarified butter), and a cotton wick is placed in the oil, which is then lit to create a flame. The Aarti Diya is waved in a circular motion in front of the deity or sacred object while hymns and prayers are chanted. The handle on the Aarti Diya allows the person performing the Aarti to hold it comfortably without directly touching the hot metal or flame. It also provides better control and stability while moving the diya in the ritualistic circular motion. The handle may be curved or straight, depending on the design and style of the diya. Overall, the Aarti Diya with a handle combines functionality with aesthetics, allowing devotees to participate in religious ceremonies and express their devotion through the offering of light.
