The 108 names known
as the Ashtottara Shatanamavali are said to be extremely auspicious to chant.
People recite Ganapathi's 108 names and perform Pooja to gain the blessings of
this Supreme God. This brass
lamp with 108 or more wicks is also known as an
Ashtottara Deepam or 108-wick lamp. It is considered auspicious to light this
lamp while singing Lord Ganesha's Ashtottara Shatanamavali. Each light cluster
in this lamp has a sacred picture
of Lord Ganesha, directing the warmth of
the lamp straight to the almighty. Columnar lights with a well-carved stem and
hanging lamps from the branches form the fundamental structure.
