Known as “Tengai” (literally “honey fruit”) in Tamil, and as “Nariyal” in Hindi (literally “fruit containing water”, from the root word “nari” meaning “water”). The coconut is a resilient fruit whose shell can withstand the pressure of sea water, so it is not impossible for it to have made the transit across the water without human assistance. A hardy plant, the coconut would have been able to survive in relatively inhospitable weather without much upkeep. It grows in sandy soil, requires little water, and requires virtually no maintenance.

Offering Aarthi means calling out to God with intense yearning. If a human being calls out to a deity through the medium of the Aarthi then he is granted either a vision of God in the form of light or of the deities’ form. The hymns in an Aarthi which are in praise of the deities, also entail an earnest prayer made unto God to win His grace. The deities and God who bestows grace, are pleased with the praises and worship of the one who offers Aarthi. Towards the end of every ritualistic worship (pooja or bhajan) of the Lord or to welcome an honored guest or saint, we perform the Aarathi. This is always accompanied by the ringing of the bell and sometimes by singing, playing of musical instruments and clapping.
