Om sainathaya namaha
Apart from Starsai shradha saburi pooja, many devotees used to see starsai and ask me a question about Shirdi Saibaba Coconut lamps Pooja
Hundreds of Shirdi Saibaba devotees has read that Coconut lamps pooja for Shirdi Sai Baba and asked me one question.
“Sairam Venkat, what should i do with the coconuts after the ghee/oil is over?”
The answer is simple –
What will you do with the lemon when lemon lamps are lit, Obviously you will dispose it but when it comes to coconut, sometimes the inner part becomes dark as that also burns and sometimes it looks edible.
I don’t recommond cleaning and having it as prasad. My humble request is please let it cool off few hours, Sprinkle water to make sure theres no fire or smoke and then
1.Drop in a garden or bushes or under trees ( if you have garden in home)
2. Once its completely cooled,its ok to drop it in the Dust BIN.
The use of coconut is only untill the lamps are glowing…once its done, you can throw them to dustbin and its ok to do it. I believe some devotees think about washing the coconut and have the inner part as prasad but in India, we can never say oil and ghee are available in various prices. Some can afford good quality and some can’t . So better follow above instructions.
Lighting coconut Lamps:
Please read the link in beginning of this article if you also like to Light coconut lamps pooja for sainath Maharaj.
I request you to remember the following friends :
To Light coconut lamps you can use
2.Gingelly oil ( Til oil, Nal ennai as they call in tamil)
3. Coconut oil too but i recommond Pure Ghee to be more auspicious as anything that comes from cow brings auspiciousness)
1.Be very careful while lighting coconut lamps and keep a eversilver or bronze plate and make sure it stands steady. Do not light coconut lamps if you dont have a safe place at home. Make sure you remain in home when lamps are glowing..it takes few hours if you use Ghee.
If you have to go out then dip the wicks inghee and make sure its completely off and then move.Keep in safe distance from children…They can worship but you must keep an eye on them.
2.Use thick wicks…i mean many wicks togather to light coconut lamps as its going to glow big and beautiful. If you light in open area in temple etc, wind cant put off lamps with thick wicks.( some temples many not allow coco lamps…make sure they do and some family members may not like ..so see if all cooperates…i dont want to create problem in your house…ha ha)
3. Once Ghee /Oil is over, sometimes the coconut itself burns along with wicks. Personally i allow it to happen as i work with Dhuni with high fire while cleaning it and i believe sai will always make sure its safe for us. ..if you feel its unsafe, try to put off by using any flowers or any other safe means or sprinkle water carefuly. Then let it cool off few minutes and then sprinkle water..drop in garden or better in Dust bin after allowing atleast 5 to 10 hours to cool off.
