Wat Chaiyamangalaram - 5

Lotus shaped candles are available for purchase. After prayers, devotees were required to place them on this designated table, where some remained lit and others were blown off in the breeze.

They are pretty offerings, en masse, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Indeed they made a pretty sight, Ray.
This is a beautiful image, Ayush! I love your DOF!
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the kind comment, Elizabeth.

Is this a prayer thing Ayush?
Ayush Basu: Offerings that the devotees light and pray with, Chris. Once they are done, they leave the lit candles on the altar.

I can imagine that they are perfumed as well. You made a great picture of the candles.
Ayush Basu: Hmm, if it was perfumed, it was probably a weak one and probably, just as well, Louis. Thank you very much.
Excellent shot of them, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: You are very kind, Mary.
They are lovely candles compared with the standard shaped plain ones used in Christian churches.
Ayush Basu: Indeed they made a pretty sight, Brian.
Lovely work with the DoF, Ayush! Nice capture... smile
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Sudipto. I am fascinated how some of the bokeh lights come out hexagonal rather than oval or circular.
I would want to take one home with me...
Ayush Basu: I am sure that could be arranged, Larry.
Fine shot, Ayush!
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Tom.

If at all possible I always light a candle in a holy place.

These Lotus candles are really pretty and have a specific symbolism.
Ayush Basu: I think it is a peaceful act to do, CP. The lotus flower is widely seen in Buddhism.
