Karthigai is essentially a festival of lamps.Rows of Agal vilakkus (Clay Oil lamps) are lit in every house.The lighted lamp is considered an auspicious symbol. It is believed to ward off evil forces and usher in prosperity and joy. While the lighted lamp is important for all Hindu rituals and festivals, it is indispensable for Karthigai.The lighting of the lamp has a very special spiritual significance. The wick in the lamp denotes our ego, the oil in the lamp symbolizes our inborn nature that cultures the ego and the flame denotes the spiritual wisdom that can inflame the ego (wick) by burning out our innate behavior (oil). Therefore, the lighting of the lamps simply represents the victory of good over evil. On the day of Deepam, people light lamps in their houses to welcome prosperity and auspiciousness in their lives and ward off evil forces and negativities.
On this day everyone gifts their friends and relatives gifts that are a symbol of growth and prosperity.We at harith tharang would like to add on to the prosperity by giving a free tulasi sapling on all purchase for Rs.200/- and above only on 10th Dec,2019.
