The practise of lighting diyas and offering them to the Gods has been since time immemorial. When we are praying to the deity, their divine presence can be felt only in a positive environment free form any impurities.

Therefore, a diya serves the purpose of purifying the environment by getting rid of the negativity and create positive vibes. This will let us feel the presence of the Divine being.

        The Oil Lamp in Hinduism is considered as a female form of God. In India the Oil Lamp represents Mother Lakshmi. The Lakshmi Lamp that's used in most Hindu homes in South Africa is called the Gaja Lakshmi Lamp (like the picture above). In Hindu   Dharma,   Elephants   are   symbols   of   wealth.   Gaja­Lakshmi,   that   is   the Lakshmi  form  with  elephants,  is   one  of   the  most  significant  aspects  of   MotherLakshmi. In this aspect, Ma is depicted seated on a lotus, flanked on both side by an elephant   (gaja).   Ma   is   shown   as  seated   in   Padma­asana   (lotus   position) yogic posture, and has four arms. In each of Her upper pair of arms, She carries a lotus, and the lower hands are in ABHYA i.e the gesture of reassurance and safety, is a hand pose, which dispels fear and accords divine protection and bliss to Her devotee, and varada­mudra i.e. a gesture by the hand and symbolizes dispensing of boons. For varada­mudra, the left hand is used. It is held out, with Her palm uppermost and   the   fingers   pointing   downwards.   The   elephants   flanking   Ma   are   shown   as pouring  water  from   their  trunk   over   Ma   Lakshmi.  This   aspect   like  most   other aspects   of   Mother   Lakshmi   is   representative   of   prosperity,   good   luck,  and abundance; and  and the Gaja Lakshmi motifs are very common in Hindu iconography.
