Dhoop Aarti - English - Marathi

Dhoop called Incense in English is an integral part and parcel of the daily worship in the Hindu religion. The practice of lighting Dhoop before a deity goes back to the Vedic period. This practice involves reciting an Aarti while offering Dhoop in a traditional Pooja tray or a Spoon like utensil. Burning of Dhoop, which is made from natural ingredients like roots, wood and various types of flowers, purifies the entire atmosphere. The Spiritual significance is that it purifies the mind.

This is one such Aarti in the Marathi language which is commonly recited in praise of Vitthal or Vishnu who is also called as Pandhariraya or the Lord of Pandharpur.
