Radhadesh is a Hare Krishna community, located in the serene hills of the Ardennes. We perform many different ancient ceremonies. Arati is one such worship. It is considered very auspicious for the person who performs it and for anyone who attends the ceremony. Many families in India and abroad will make a point of attending a temple arati ceremony once or twice a day, as well as performing the ceremonies at home.

 

The ceremony itself is very beautiful to see and involves the use of a conch shell, bell, flowers, incense, lamp, water, cloth, yak-tail and peacock fans. The articles represent the material elements (earth, water, fire, and air) in their pure form.

The conch shell blown at the beginning and end of each ceremony is said to drive away inauspicious elements. The sound of the bell embodies all music. Flowers and incense provide beautiful aromas. The lamp represents lighting someone’s way. Offering water in the conch shell is a traditional way of greeting an honored guest when receiving them. The handkerchief represents offering new cloth. The yak-tail fan and peacock fan provide a cooling breeze.
