    Hare Krsna Mataji,

    PAMHO.

    By offering diya, you mean the panch pradeep that is given at the time of arati? Normally, it is supposed to be 5 battis in one pradeep - thats why its called panch pradeep. THere is no scope for the oil or the wick to remain in that. So everytime, it's 5 fresh battis dipped in ghee.

    Haribol,

      Thank you very much. Also, I have one more doubt. Should the 5 wicks lighted separately or they should be kept close and lighted once.

        Hare KRsna dear Mataji,

        PAMHO.

        Normally, we keep a brass lamp which has space for 5 wicks. You will find in most ISKCON temple shops if you ask. If you do not have that kind of arati stand as of now, you can use 5 wicks together, though that is not the ideal.

        Haribol,

        YOur servant,

        Rashmi

  • Hare krishna Arrange a clean brass/copper/clay pot and fill it with pure ghee or sesame oil. Place FRESH and NEW cotton wick every time you refill your lamp. This will prevent accidents and bad burning.
