Is there any scientific reason behind lighting the Diya in coronavirus?
Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the nation on 3rd APRIL, Friday and appreciated the patience and discipline of the people in the fight with Coronavirus. After this, PM Modi urged the citizen of the nation to switch off lights at their homes and light up lamps, candles or mobile phone torches for nine minutes at 9 pm on April 5 to display the country’s “collective resolve” to defeat coronavirus.
PM Modi had earlier addressed the country to defeat the Coronavirus for the first time on 20 March 2020. He appealed public for Janta curfew on Sunday (22 March 2020) from 7 am to 9 pm. During this time, he had also urged the people to clap and express gratitude for the doctor, police force and media personnel for five minutes. On his appeal, people all over the country stood on their balconies and door of their house and clap, ring bells to express their gratitude towards Corona Warriors.
The lighting of lamps is of great importance at the time of worship while candles are lit in many religions. From a scientific perspective, light has its own distinct significance. There is heat in the light as well as it also destroys negative things like bacteria, viruses, etc.
The lighting of lamps is considered very important in Sanatan Dharma. It is also believed that Deepak removes sorrow, poverty, and misfortune. The importance of lighting lamps is also given in the scriptures. ‘Roshni’ is taken as a defense shield that maintains the flow of positive energy.
