Lamps

The burning lamp represents the element of fire. Fire is one of the five principal elements of this material creation (earth, water, fire, sky and air) and it represents purity. Whatever comes in contact with fire is immediately purified, the way impure gold is converted into pure gold.

Worshipping the supreme lord is one of the ways of expressing our gratitude towards him. It is believed that he has been maintaining the entire creation from time immemorial and has been supplying the living entities with all sorts of items desired by them in the longer run. And for his selfless service and loving affection towards us, we must reciprocate the same in the form of rendering devotional service unto him.

Purpose of burning the lamp

When the lamp is offered to the supreme lord, it enables the devotee to see the form of the lord, which is inside the sanctum sanctorum (inner house of deity). There was no availability of artificial lighting in the earlier days and hence, it would become difficult to see the deity of the lord after sunset. Therefore, the lamps would illuminate the entire temple to ease the sight.
