It is said “Gomaye Vasathe Lakshmi” which means Goddess Lakshmi resides in cow dung of native breed cows.
These diyas are made from gomaya (cow dung of native breed cows). This comes in a set of 10 gomaya diyas with 10 gomaya plates to keep below the diya.
Burning of gomaya helps spread positive vibes in the atmosphere, also acts as a great insect repellant! The diyas are sun baked and hence have a lower carbon footprint than the kiln burnt clay diyas. The gomaya diyas also make milk unyielding cows an income source and thus get automatically cared for and not abandoned.
