Lamp Going Off Bad Luck: Is the extinguishing of the lamp auspicious or inauspicious?  every gesture says a lot

Unfortunate In Indian culture it is customary to pray to God by lighting a lamp and folding hands. Usually after worship aarti is performed by lighting a lamp in front of the god and if the lamp is extinguished during the aarti it is considered inauspicious, but lighting a lamp is not just a sign of inauspiciousness, it can be many things. There can be other reasons behind this.. Today we are going to tell you about the reasons and beliefs of turning off the lamp.

Lighting a lamp is considered an indicator of the coming of light in life. For this reason, the flame of a lamp has been compared to the flame of knowledge in the scriptures. According to the scriptures, lighting a lamp not only removes darkness from any place, but it is also considered to destroy the darkness spread in life. The more benefits and positive effects are considered by lighting the lamp, the more negative effects are also considered while extinguishing the lamp.

Many of you consider the extinguishing of the lamp as inauspicious and start to panic about this phenomenon, but in reality there are many reasons and signs for the extinguishing of the lamp.

 

There are many reasons for a lamp to go out

1. According to the information mentioned in the scriptures, if the lamp suddenly gets extinguished at the time of Aarti, then the first and main reason for this can be the velocity of the wind. The argument of fans, coolers, or natural air blowing out lamps is mostly valid.

Some of the reasons for lighting a lamp from a religious point of view are as follows –

1. Extinguishing the lamp during worship is considered a hindrance in fulfillment of wishes. Extinguishing the lamp during worship can also be a sign of the displeasure of the Gods and Goddesses. The lamp can also be extinguished because the person performing the aarti has committed some wrong behavior or some sinful act.

 

2. If worship has not been done with true heart or if there is any deficiency in worship or if worship is incomplete, then it is possible to extinguish the lamp. Religion says that at such a time nothing bad happens by asking for forgiveness from God and lighting the lamp again. On the other hand, on practical grounds, the wick of the lamp can also be a reason for the lamp to go out.

3. The lamp gets extinguished even after the wick of the lamp becomes old or when it is churned properly. This is because many old kunds get wet, due to which water element is formed in them and the kund cannot be burnt by fire. On the other hand, if the vata is not churned properly, it does not drink ghee, so the vata remains dry from within and the fire cannot burn it.
