Deepak or diya is Sanskrit for ‘oil lamps,’ which are lit not only during festivals but for everyday worship in homes all over India. Stated simply, an oil lamp can be called a deepak. Some families light deepak to mark specific day parts; for example, at dawn, dusk or even both. Some households believe the light of the deepak in the shrine should be the first light at night, lit before any other lights are turned on. Others keep lamps burning continuously at all hours of the day in a practice called Akhanda Deepa. This custom stems from the belief that light is knowledge, knowledge is power, and together they vanquish darkness, or ignorance. Just as many flames can be lit from a single deepak without diminishing its brightness, knowledge can also be shared without being lost. Oil lamps are therefore considered auspicious symbols of knowledge, goodness and abundance.
