By folly, darkening knowledge. But, for whom

That darkness of the soul is chased by Light (of the Lord),

Splendid and clear shines manifest the Truth

As if a Sun of Wisdom sprang to shed

Its beams of dawn. Him mediating still,

Him seeking, with Him blended, stayed on Him,

The souls illuminated take that road

Which hath no turning back—their sins flung off

By strength of faith. Who will, may have this Light;

Who hath it, sees." (Bhagavad-Gita).

Oil lamps are an integral part of any Hindu temple and such lamps are also used in home shrines. Normally the lamps used in temples are circular with places for five wicks. There will usually be at least one lamp in each shrine, and the main shrine may contain several. Whereas normally only one wick is lit, with all five or even six burning only on festive occasions. The oil lamp is used in Aarti.
