[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
There is a depth meaning at the light we glow near Idol's. If you look in the picture you shall see 5 points of fire, which are called Panchabhutas in India.
For human survival one would need the most important five things in life, as per Hindu beliefs
The five things are
1) Air 2) Water 3) Earth 4) Fire 5) Sky

Air, helps us breathe,
Water, helps clean and thirst
Earth, bears our weight.
Fire, helps prepare food.
Sky, protecting us from outer space, like an umbrella.

The light is lit this way for Lord's as terms of thanking him for supporting human life by providing these.

Hope you like it.

PS: This was shot during a pooja(prayer) at my home on the occasion of VaraMaha Lakshmi (Translation : Boon Great Lakshmi(goddess for money :) )
