आरती

आरती हिन्दू उपासना की एक विधि है । इसमें जलती हुई लौ या इसके समान कुछ खास वस्तुओं से आराध्य के सामाने एक विशेष विधि से घुमाई जाती है । लौ तेल के दीये की हो सकती है या उपलों की । इसमें वैकल्पिक रूप से, घी, धूप तथा सुगंधित पदार्थों को भी मिलाया जाता है । कई बार इसके साथ संगीत (भजन) तथा नृत्य भी होता है । मंदिरों में इसे प्रायः सायंकाल में द्वार के बंद होने से पहले किया जाता है । प्राचीन काल में यह व्यापक पैमाने पर प्रयोग किया जाता था । इसे आधुनिक यज्ञ माना जा सकता है।

तमिल भाषा में इसे दीप आराधनई कहते हैं ।


Aarti, ãrti, arathi, or ãrati is a Hindu ritual, in which light from wicks soaked in ghee (purified butter) or camphor is offered to one or more deities. It is said to have descended from the Vedic concept of fire rituals, or homa. The word may also refer to the traditional Hindu devotional song that is sung during the ritual. Aarti is performed and sung to develop the highest love for God. "Aa" means "towards", and "rati" means "the highest love for God" in Sanskrit.
