Aarti is practiced every day, morning and evening, at all the temples in Maharajji's ashrams.
This is the Aarti practice done at the Mahasamdhi Temple of India's great saint Neeb Karoli Baba / Neem Karoli Baba Maharajji in Vrindavan, India on the morning of Hanuman Jayanti in 1999.
Aarti is said to have descended from the Vedic concept of fire rituals, or homa. In the traditional aarti ceremony, the flower represents the earth (solidity), the water and accompanying handkerchief correspond with the water element (liquidity), the lamp or candle represents the fire component (heat), the peacock fan conveys the precious quality of air (movement), and the yak-tail fan represents the subtle form of ether (space). The incense represents a purified state of mind, and one’s "intelligence" is offered through the adherence to rules of timing and order of offerings. Thus, one’s entire existence and all facets of material creation are symbolically offered to the Lord via the aarti ceremony. (Wikipedia)
Aarti is offered to Maharajji with the Utmost Love and Gratitude.
