Brass Deepa Spoon

Deepa literally means light, and the deepa spoon is used to offer light as well as camphor to the deity during worship. The light itself in the spoon is said to represent the light and power of God, and the camphor is our ego which is burned away with our prayers. Our deepa spoon is elegantly fashioned in brass. It is 6" long. "May purity and peace spread all around me as this holy flame illumines all with clarity." --quote from the Deepam prayer in the Puja Book. Puja is a form of worship which is performed to purify the mind, to express devotion, and to connect with the sacred energies of the gods and goddesses themselves. For those who are interested in learning more about this ancient ritual, we offer the Puja Book and the Puja Tape which explain and illustrate how to perform this beautiful form of worship.
