A diya is used in temples to perform rituals of puja and aarti. Light coming from it is used as a medium to remove darkness (evil forces). It symbolizes purity, affection, power and good luck; used in various festivals and other religious occasions. Oil in it represents the human mind- greed, dirt, jealousy etc. Cotton is the self or soul and diya presents the light when it is burnt by a wick. Lightening of diya means to get rid of materialistic and selfish thoughts.
Goddess Mariamman also called Mother Mari is the deity of rain and cures diseases like cholera, small pox and chicken pox. She gives correct direction and invokes knowledge. Her face on a diya holds great value as she, with her wisdom and knowledge spreads the light of diya all over and brings divinity and protection. She holds an antique leaf shaped crown and adorns beautiful jewels. This circular shaped diya with a pointed end has a thick base and broad borders.
It is a very precious statue from the Swamimalai temple of Tamil Nadu. Its presence in any worshipping place will be of a great importance and will bring luck.
