This oil Lamp/Diya has been designed keeping in view the problems encountered while running an oil lamp. viz. dripping of oil at the tip of the Diya leading to a messy operation high consumption of oil inconsistent flame, loss of oil due to the porous nature of the lamp.
All these problems are eliminated and a thoughtfully designed notch placed at the tip of the Diya and given an angle holds the wick in such a way that no oil drips from the tip of the lamp and the angle of the wick gives an incredible average.
When lighting the Diya illuminates the deity on the central pedestal and gives a very divine effect with the lit-up brass deity. Very beautiful handcrafted select brass deities are selected for each lamp.
The concept of deity in the center makes the Diya a temple by itself for someone who has space constraints and can’t have a temple in a small room or would like to have a compact meditation and prayer temple which is easy to carry along and place at any convenient place.
This Diya has created records in terms of extremely low oil consumption and consistent flame.
50 ml of oil runs nonstop for 10-12 hours depending on the flame height maintained. This makes the lamp the most economical lamp to operate, as the operating cost comes to approximately Rs. 3 for 12 hours.
