Aarti is derived from the Sanskrit word Aratrika which means something that removes darkness. A traditional diya oil lamp along with the snake hood made of brass metal is a beautiful piece of exquisitely handcrafted being presented for bringing positivity. Aarti embodies the divinity representing five important elements of nature – Prithvi, Jal, Agni, Vayu, and Akash.
