Peranāmpattu For Buddhists, the candle symbolizes Buddha’s teaching; therefore, candles have been employed for many, many years in ceremonies. The villagers make the candles by using real wax from an active beehive.
The wax is separated and put into a container, such as a bowl or a plate, to cool. When it cools, it is cut with a knife. The chunks of wax are rolled on a smooth floor until they become round, ready for lighting.
Not only is the lighting the candle a symbol of worship for Buddha’s teaching, but it is also believed that the one who made the candle knows how to banish misfortune, find luck, and grant a long life. The Candle Worship one of the most popular Shan rituals.
