  1. Hi. I’m a little confused on the number of wicks to burn. Do I light two wicks in same lamp ( I light a kamachi velukku daily) or do I need to light two different lamps. If we light two wicks in same lamp must it be two separate flames or do they burn together as one flame. Also could you please explain how to make a wick from cloth? Do we have to soak the cloth in oil/ghee and then roll it? Your clarification is greatly appreciated. Thank you

    1. Cow Ghee
    2. Illuppai Oil
    3. Caster Oil
    4. Gingely oil
    and with
    5.Coconut oil ?

  3. I have a request. Can you please tell me the sankalpa mantra for Vilakku pooja. i.e. to whom we should do avahanam.



  4. Hello,
    The above informations are very good. I have an additional doubt though. When lighting the lamp with 5 thiri’s which all directions should the flame be ? And also should each flame have 2 thiris entwined into one?
    Please do reply.

    1. When you light a lamp with 5 thiris (i think 5 faces), then it cannot have directions as we have 4 directions but 5 faces.
      What we follow generally is the face of the lamp will face East.
      Few people are telling 2 thiris entwined into one. But i dont know the reason. We are not doing the same as we use thiri which is little big bulky and if we entwine 2 into one, it may not be fit into the space for the thiri in our lamp.



  5. Thank for the above information but I hav a doubt thamara thandai thiri and thamara thiri is the same.The second question is can we use coconut oil for daily deepam…If so then what are the benefits

  6. the above things were relevant to my doubts. THANKS.Give lot of things in this web page so that it will clear our doubts.THANK U ONCE AGAIN
