Traditional way of lighting butter lamps
Regarded as a spiritual practice, the traditional way of lighting butter lamps starts with washing one’s hands. A mask is worn to prevent one’s breath from ‘contaminating’ the purity of the butter lamp. Next, old butter is removed from the chalice using a clean piece of cloth and a new wick of pure cotton is placed within.
The entire process is carried out in a very meditative manner, meant to draw one in both physically and spiritually.
