Photographer's Note

I have captured the two Hindu women engaged in lighting the clay oil lamp in a Hindu temple in Chennai. Hindus believe that Light is one of the Divine form - Divine Light. Light symbolizes the absence of darkness, grief and sorrow and indicates inside knowledge illumination along with enlighten.
Light symbolizes awareness.

As a result of lighting an oil lamp, will always removes darkness, ignorance, evil and relives from worries, troubles, stress, and also disappointment.. By lighting the lamps, almighty's delightful grace will spread all over the temple / house.

In an oil lamp, oil or ghee within the lamp signifies our vices and the wick our ego. Whenever lit by spiritual knowledge, the vices get slowly and gradually exhausted along with the ego too perishes. The wick is main object which is using to light an oil lamp and actually wick is a symbol of power and brightness where a lamp emits lighting.
