Vilakku (Lamp) Puja
« on: December 14, 2007, 12:48:05 PM »
Hi everyone,

I was just wondering what is Vilakku (Lamp) Puja? I've seen mainly women doing this pooja in temples. My mum used to go to temples to do this puja too. Even in some movies they show a number of women, sitting in a row, with the lamps in front of them and singing bhajans or devotional songs, doing puja.

Do any of you guys know what Vilakku Puja is all about? Heard of them? Why is this puja done? Any information you guys can contribute? Thanks in advance.

Vilakku Pooja: Every one feels that godess lakshmi is residing in lamp light to lit our surroundings with all fortune. Vilakku pooja is also like that to worship our god. At home if you lit a lamp and pray, you feel that lamp is giving light to our home and our surrounding. LAKSHMI KADATCHAM.
