    Hi friends,
    I've a question in my mind. From childhood I've seen my mom lighting only one lamp at the time of pooja but now she is lightning two. She doesn't know why. Now a days I see every one light two lamps to God. Can anyone tell me why? And how many lamps do you light?
    Thanks
    May God Bless You.

    There is no compultion for lighting 1 or 2 lamps..

    But you need to put 2 threds jointly in the Deepam, and U need to lit that..
    You can Lit either one or two lamps but you should put 2 threads..
    You can put the lamp towards east or west, But not towards north or south..
    If U r using the Lakshmi Pramida, U should use one lamp only..

    I do light 2 lamps in the morning and one in the evening. Morning one facing east direction and another facing north with ghee. My MIL said one in north with ghee is very good for the house. I don't know why? but i do it. Sindhurak has specified lighting lamp in north is not good but everyone in my MIL family lights one lamp in the north side.

    Lamp facing north, east or west is good, only facing south is very.................bad as it is yama's side (dhikku).

    Lighting lamps facing either east or north is good.No harm in doing so.
    Only we have to join 2 cotton threads and then light a lamp. Anyway i don't know the significance but elders tell us to join 2 cotton threads,
