Why Akhand Jyoti is lit in Navratri, know its importance

Although lamps are lit in the house in the morning and evening, only one recitation of Ramcharit Manas is performed on Navratri and other important occasions like Mother’s Jagran, Chowki, Akhand Jyoti. It is known to all that the Akhand Jyoti has a very important place in devotion. Before discussing Akhand Jyoti, it is very important to know about Pradeep.

Bhakti reaches to God
The devotee tries to have mercy on the Lord through the fire deity present in the lamp. Here the lamp as the messenger of the devotee conveys his feelings to the Lord or Ishta, so it is said that daily worship of the Lord, lighting of lamps, ringing of bells, blowing of conchshell etc. Lord and Mother Lakshmi are worshipped. Any type of worship is started by lighting a lamp and at the end of the worship, aarti is performed with the lamp of the deity or goddess.

The lamp remains as it is,
As long as the worship is going on, the lamp should be kept intact, so that the surrounding environment is gradually cleared by its power. Lamps have great spiritual and scientific significance. After lighting the lamp, it gradually covers the surrounding area with the heat of its flame, the longer the lamp burns without extinguishing, the larger its area. The simple meaning of integrity is that as long as the worship continues, the lamp should be kept burning, that is, the lamp should not be extinguished. For this, it should be kept in mind that the cotton wick of the lamp in which the flame is burning without extinguishing is very big and there is enough ghee in it.

 

to remove bad vibrations behind the flame and
The idea behind not extinguishing the lamp is that as the lamp is lit continuously without a break, its power covers the entire house or even a specific area. The negativity or upper blockages, also called bad vibrations, are automatically destroyed in the area covered by the fire god, hence the tradition of lighting an unbroken flame throughout Navratri. God is none other than Agni to perform micro-cleaner i.e. after coming in contact with fire the impurity or negativity is consumed and what remains is like pure gold. Lighting an unextinguished flame in the house brings happiness, prosperity and wealth.
