How to perform Aarti for a Goddess ?

The Goddess principle, that is the Divine energy principle is a confluence of the saviour and destroyer forms of Energy. Hence it is only appropriate that the Aarti hymns be sung in a low pitch, at a medium pace and earnestly, with intense bhav.

Which musical instruments should be played during the Aarti ?

Since the Goddess symbolises the Divine energy principle musical instruments such as drums made from leather and generating energy frequencies should be played lightly during the Aarti.

Should a lamp with a single wick ('ekarti') or lamp with five wicks ('pancharti') be used for Aarti?

This entirely depends on the bhav (emotional) and spiritual level of the devotee performing the Aarti.

Performing pancharti: The five wicks of a pancharti symbolise the principle of multiplicity, that is the ever-changing Great Illusion. If the devotee performing Aarti is a preliminary stage seeker (with spiritual level less than 50%), who has just commenced spiritual practice then he should use the five wick Arti.

Performing ekarti: One wick of the ekarti symbolises the principle of singularity. The devotee with substantial bhav(emotional) and a spiritual level above 50% should use the one wick Aarti, that is ekarti.

Performing Aarti with the atmajyoti: A highly evolved devotee with a spiritual level of more than 70% and who has already entered a stage of unmanifest bhav(emotional), gets a vision of the Goddess with His atmajyoti. Using this to perform Aarti indicates steadiness of emotion in the principle of singularity.

What is the correct method of performing Aarti ?

When performing the Aarti of a Goddess move the lit lamp around the Devta(God) in a complete circular manner in the clockwise direction.

God hears your prayer although camphor in a plate is more than enough along with a deepam if available.
I use the Divya Jyoti for the husband who is Hindu, I am not, I was born Christian.
Its what you are in your heart not what show you give to the public that evokes God. The truth of your being is seen out there and no matter how much you bribe the mortal representative or how many fires you light, God only answers prayers which are becoming of your personal debt to Creation.
