What Is "Aarti"?

"Aarti", also written as "arti" and "arati" (which latter is the closest to the original) is a Hindu religious rite or ceremony, which is an act of worship of the recipient or object as deity or as a deity.

The word "Arati" means a primæval, gut-felt cry out to the deity by the supplicant.

The theological underpinnings of the ritual of "Aarti" is the Hindu belief that all souls and living beings, and even the spirits or souls attributed to inanimate things such as stones, rocks, mountains, rivers, etc., are deities, as part of the pantheistic concept of Brahman.

Brahman is conceptualized as an impersonal Supreme Deity above the three SuperGods, the Gods ("Devas"), and other classes of spiritual beings.

Every spirit, including of the three SuperGods and the Devas, the souls of men, animals, plants and things, are fragments or emanations of this Supreme Deity or Supreme Godhead, "Brahman" (also called the "Brahma-Atma", "Cosmos-Soul" or "Param-Atma", the "Supreme-Soul"), which have been separated and are in a state of unknowing ("Maya").

As such, each of these spirits is a part of this Supreme Godhead, and therefore participates in the common Godhead and are therefore deities in themselves.

Therefore, as deity, each of these spirits or souls can be worshipped with divine worship: what the Catholics call "Latria".

Catholicism affirms that souls and spirits are not a part of the Godhead, and therefore not divine, and that they may not be offered the quality of worship that is reserved to God alone, that is, "Latria".

Therefore, it follows that Catholics may not knowingly either perform the "Aarti" ceremony, or permit it to be performed upon oneself, and those that persist in doing so, are considered to have committed a grave sin against God, and to have apostatized.

As part of the New Religion, based on Evolutionary Paganism, and seeking to bring about the union of all religions into a single One-World Religion, the Anti-Catholic Church, under the Antipope Wojtyla, the Lying Pole, has deliberately adopted the pagan rite of "Aarti" into its liturgies, in order to co-opt the Hindu pagans, and for the larger purpose of inculcating a spirit of eclecticism.

The first time Wojtyla received divine worship as a god was during his first visit to India, in the city of Madras (see the picture below). The picture of this event shows him being anointed with the "Sindoor", a red powder, on the forehead, which is the last part of the "Aarti" ceremony.

Apologists of the Antipope have sought to throw mud into the eyes of those members of his sect who still retain some vestige of Catholic feeling and who are therefore scandalized by these doings.

These apologists of the wolves and vampires of the Antichurch have pretended that the "Aarti" ceremony is one merely welcoming and honoring a visitor or guest, and is not intrinsically pagan, or an act of worship due to deity alone.

In this page, I demonstrate that this is false, and a deliberate and conscious lie. — Lúcio.

Introduction To "The Church of Brazenfaced Lying":
The Virtue Sedulously Cultivated By The Antichurch

The Antichurch does not deny that "Aarti" was performed — repeatedly and on several occasions — upon, or by, its Heresiarch and Antipope Wojtyla, the Pretender "John-Paul II". It rather relies on a brazen-faced lie that the rite of "Aarti" is an Indian social custom, not specifically Hindu, and that it merely signifies welcoming and honor to a guest when he or she first arrives.

It is true that "Aarti", in addition to its first and principal meaning of worship of the object as deity, is also an act of welcoming and honor to a guest when he or she first comes into a Hindu home, or of an idol when it is brought for the first time to a pagan home, temple or other site. However, it is a lie, based on that old trickery of suppressio verii, suggestio falsi to pretend that it only signifies welcome and honor.

That the Antichurch so lies, I will prove by quoting it verbatim.

The Society of St. Pius X, colloquially called "Lefebvrists" for its founder Marcel Lefebvre, former Archbishop of Dakar, Africa, is an organisation that seeks to sit on two stools — Christianity AND Roman Liberal Protestant Modernism — and ends up falling down, pleasing neither. However, it is also an organization that serves a useful role by documenting and publicizing the demoniacism and pythoniacism of the Modernists, especially the Satanists Montini ("Paul VI") and Wojtyla ("John-Paul II").

Thus, for example, it was the Lefebvrists who first gave wide publicity to the Satanist crimes of Wojtyla, his deliberate reception of divine worship by means of the Hindu "Aarti", in Madras (or "Chennai"), South India, during his 1986 visit:

The Satanist Wojtyla soliciting divine worship for himself!
Liberal Protestant Modernist Apostate being worshipped as god!
"Still at Madras on February 5, 1986, a sugarcane, fashioned into the form of a cross, signifying a Hindu offering to a carnal god, was brought into the presence of Wojtyla.

"A little later, during the offertory procession, a coconut was carried to the altar, a typical Hindu offering, which they offer to their idols.

"Finally, a man placed sacred ashes on his forehead.

"It was not a matter of Tilak but of Sacred Ashes or "Vi-Bhuti".

"Three days earlier, on Feb. 2, he had received on his forehead the Tilac or Tikka, the red powdery paste of the Hindus, the sign of the adorers of Shiva."

A certain person, F. John Loughnan, who makes it his vocation to protect and further the cult of the Modernist vampire-antipopes, and whose pertinacious lies regarding the true nature of the "Aarti" provoked me to initiate my exposure of the true meaning of the "Aarti", has — not suprisingly, for these are the natural virtues of his sect — in one of his recent pages, deliberately and maliciously misrepresented me as a "Lefebvrist" despite the fact that I have been publicly denouncing the Lefebvrists for years, and despite himself admitting that I am not a Lefebvrist but am a loyal Catholic, subject to the Pope, His Holiness Pope Michael. That is one thing that moved me to revise and update this page once again.

In response to this, I have consolidated my pages on Lefebvrism into a single page: The Lefebvrist Controversy.

While I have always rejected Lefebvrism, I can vouch that Archbishop Lefebvre's statements as to the nature of the Aarti, coconut offering, vibhuti and tilak or tikka, are correct and exact (See Table of References immediately below)

References To Understand Definitions Of Idolatry, Etc.

Wikipedia is an online Encyclopedia that is open to anyone. It is therefore anarchic and also prone to syncretisation on any particular subject, and therefore not very reliable as a source of information. It is also prone to reflect Protestant prejudices and misrepresentations of Christianity (i.e. Catholicism), hand-in-hand with Liberalism, Agnosticism, Scepticism and Atheism, all of which have their modern origins in Protestantism. I include Wikipedia references here because many Hindus have begun to participate in it and to provide information on their religion there, which information is comparatively more correct than that provided by people from outside the East Indies, so that the Wikipedia entries are comparatively reliable, though we must guard against Hindu blandishments also.

most common utensils of the Aarti ceremony The usual utensils for "Aarti" are a small earthern or metal container in which oil or butter is burnt with a wick, called a "diya" or "deepak" (both meaning lamp), placed in a round flat plate with a rim, called a "thali", in which are also placed some flowers, color powders, etc. This is the basic type. Others are more developed or complicate affairs, consisting of tiered galleries in which the "diyas" are fitted, if they are not made an integral part of the utensil.

When a person is marked with a Tilak, he has obtained that mark by either of two actions — he has been worshipped by the rite of "Aarti" as a god, at the end of which ceremony, his forehead is marked; alternatively, when a congregation worships an idol, the celebrant performs the "Aarti" upon the idol, at the end of which, members of the congregation bow or slightly stoop before the celebrant who marks them with the color-powder from the "thali" as a mark that they had participated in the worship of that idol, and where receiving the mark is considered a kind of communion with it.

For a comparision of the attitude of a true Catholic, according to the First Commandment, towards the pagans, see:
  1. St. Francis Xavier in the Fishery Coast: Set all Afire!


Hindus will commonly admit that the forehead markings called Tilak, Tilaka or Tikka when applied on men usually, or Bindi or Kumkum when applied on a woman, made with Chandan (Sandalwood paste), Sindoor, Vibhuti (Sacred ashes), etc., are meant to signify the third eye of Shiva and Saivik (i.e., according to the cult of Shiva) awakening.

The votaries of the antipope do not deny that the Aarti was performed on him, or that these marks (of Vibhuti and Tilak) were put on him, but they pretend that they have harmless, neutral meanings as mere social customs, and different than what Archbishop Lefebvre was given to understand.

I had found several sites which have incorporated, without any significant alterations, a purported "refutation" (of Archbishop Lefebvre's exposure of Wojtyla's apostasy) presented in a Question & Answer format by the sites run by the threesome of the most vicious anti-Catholics and self-appointed apologists for the spiritual vampires of the Roman Liberal Protestant Modernist sect (better styled the Antichurch): Loughnan, Grossklas & Akin.

(It was my encounter with this threesome and their cute vampirism that inspired this my page on the "Aarti" Controversy!)

Another purveyor of these brazen lies is the equally anti-Catholic site "This Rock".

Q.: Someone in the schismatic group "The Society of St. Pius X" told me that when the pope was in India he had his forehead anointed by a Hindu "priestess of Shiva" and that there is a photo to prove it. Is this true?

A: There is a photo of the Pope having his forehead anointed by an Indian woman, but she was a Catholic, not a Hindu priestess!

She was giving the Pope a traditional Indian form of greeting known as "Aarti," which has no more religious significance than a handshake does in Western culture or giving someone a wreath of flowers as a welcome in Hawaii.

A letter dated November 22, 1994, from the Pontifical Council for Social Communications explains the custom and its role in Indian society:
"Indian Catholics . . . use 'Aarti' when a child returns home after receiving First Holy Communion and when a newly married couple are received by their respective families.

"Nowadays, 'Aarti' is often performed to greet the principal celebrant at an important liturgical event, as it was on the occasion shown in the photograph.

"On such occasions, 'Aarti' is usually offered by a Catholic married lady and certainly not by a 'priestess of Shiva' as has been alleged."
The letter, by Archbishop John P. Foley, went on to note:
"Use of the 'Aarti' ceremonial by Indian Catholics is no more the worship of a heathen deity than is the decoration of a Christmas tree by American Christians a return to the pagan rituals of Northern Europe."
Your friend in the Society of St. Pius X should check his facts before spreading such malicious gossip about the Holy Father (cf. Acts 23:1-5).


Please note that the False Catholic Church (i.e., the Antichurch) is not denying that the rite is "Aarti", it is merely suggesting a false meaning or significance of the "Aarti" (The day will surely come when this Liberal Protestant sect, the False Catholic Church will frantically seek to deny that Wojtyla underwent the Aarti, but by then it will be impossible!)

As a matter of fact, it is an outright lie that any social groupings of Catholics originating before October 1958 practised these rites, "Aarti", etc., for the Catholic Church was very strict in excluding such rites which are incompatible with Christianity, as can be seen, for example, by the Church's decision in the "Indian Rites Controversy", reprimanding St. Robert Cardinal Bellarmine's nephew, Fr. Roberto de Nobili, S.J., the "Chinese Rites Controversy" at about the same time, and the actions of the Carmelite missionary, Fr. Francis Xavier of St. Anne, O.C.D., (nee Rafael Pavone) who ministered in the Sunkery Mission in the 1800s to the Christian refugees from the Usurper Tipu of Mysore's persecution, deportations, and forced apostasy to the vileness of Islam, and who (Fr. Francis) famously suppressed the pagan customs they lately adopted from their pagan harborers.

It is only after the apostasy to the Liberal Protestant heresy of Modernism under the auspices of Roncalli, the antipope John XXIII-II, emanating from Rome, that many, though still not yet all, of Christians in India and Goa have come to be perverted and to adopt, at the urging of this sect, these pagan, sacrilegious and blasphemous rites!

Here is another report of a repeat of the same rite of blasphemy and idolatry involving the Antipope Wojtyla, from the "Frontline" magazine of India:

Karol Wojtyla in India

V. Venkatesan, New Delhi, "Frontline" magazine (Hindu Publications Group), Madras, Volume 16 – Issue 24, Nov. 13 150; 26, 1999. Text re-edited by Lúcio.

The four-day visit of Karol Wojtyla ("John Paul II"), purported head of the Roman Catholic Church and of the Vatican City State, to New Delhi in the first week of November evoked keen interest among people of many religions. Wojtyla flew in on the evening of November 5 amidst tight security. He was given a simple official reception at the airport.

The 79-year-old Karol Wojtyla stayed in the Vatican's Embassy in New Delhi's diplomatic enclave.

The four-hour "Holy Mass" held at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, New Delhi, on November 7 to mark the conclusion of the Special Assembly of the Asian Synod of Bishops, was considerably Indianized.

The special altar, shaped like hands raised in prayer, was flanked by a portrait of Mother Teresa, drawn by a young artist, Adarsh Alphons, to the left and the Gospel to the right.

A huge Indian brass lamp stood in the foreground, while bright diyas (earthern lamps) painted on the rising stage decorated the terraced sanctuary.

A group of tribal men and women from Ranchi danced to folk tunes as they ushered in the procession of priests and bishops.

Bishops of the Oriental rites lent a special colour to the solemn ranks of the clergy.

Other Indian characteristics included the singing of a Tamil devotional song and an Aarti ceremony.


Piero Marini was the Antipope Wojtyla's M.C. ("Master of Ceremonies") who oversees the selection of rites and observances of rules for his liturgical programs. Marini released on October 23, 1999, the liturgical program for the forthcoming visit to New Delhi in the coming November 1999 by the Antipope:

"At the Doxology when John-Paul II takes the chalice and paten with the host, the Aarati, which is a sign of veneration, will be performed by a group of young ladies.

"The Aarati will consist of the following:
  1. "Pushpa Aarati — waving a tray of flowers with deepak (lamp) in the center and the showering of flower petals;
  2. "Dhupa Aarati — the homage of incense;
  3. "Deepa Aarati — the homage of light, waving of camphor fire and the ringing of the bell."


As you proceed down this page, you will understand the Hindu technical terms that Piero Marini gives for the components of this program for a full and formal "Aarti" of the Apostate Wojtyla. What is however obvious is that this statement giving the technical breakup of a full and formal enactment of the "Aarti" ceremony by Marini — who is merely an insignificant cog in the wheel at the Vatican hijacked by the Roman Liberal Protestant Modernists — demonstrates that this Sect has carefully studied and researched the origin and meaning of this Hindu Rite of "Aarti".

What that true meaning is, will be demonstrated by this page as one goes on, and in contradiction to the Brazen, Concious Lies put out by this Sect in order to throw mud into the eyes of those who are not ready to accept the legitimacy of such blasphemies and sacrileges!

Proof That "Aarti" Is Divine Worship — And Not Merely An Indian Form Of Greeting

Hindu Definitions of "Aarti"

Interview given by "Fr." Pravin Fernandes, spokesman of the Antichurch in Bombay to the rabidly Pagan triumphalist website Rediff.com:
"Another symbolic gesture of worship to Jesus Christ present in the form of bread and wine is the Indian Aarti."
From the Theme Tourism in India & alacarteindia.com websites:
TRADITIONAL WELCOME — The warmth of Indian hospitality & the custom of welcoming guests is as old as the time itself. On arrival, as you step into the hotel, ladies in traditional local costumes greet you with flowers & perform the "aarti" ceremony. After having your forehead anointed with traditional red "tikka" relax with non-alcoholic welcome drink. Available at all the Taj Group of Hotels and also at most of the other hotels.
From the website of The Vivekananda Mission in England:
"Aarti (waving a lamp in front of the deity) ceremony may be carried out to invoke and welcome the deity.

"We may observe the 'aarti' ceremony (a lamp is gently waved in front of the deity in a clockwise direction). The lamp is passed around and everyone cups their hands over the lamp to receive blessings.

"Tilak — (mark on the forehead) may be made to awaken spirituality. The mark is usually made with red powder (kumkum)."
From the website of The Swaminarayan Sect:
"One should concentrate fully on the deities to whom he is offering the Aarti."
From the My Bindi Website:
"Begin with Aarti to evoke the Gods and offer your prayers."


Condensed Form of Hindu Definitions

"One should concentrate fully on the deities to whom he is offering the Aarti". [The Swaminarayan Sect]

"Aarti — waving a lamp in front of the deity — ceremony may be carried out to invoke and welcome the deity.

"We may observe the aarti ceremony — a lamp is gently waved in front of the deity in a clockwise direction.

"Tilak — mark on the forehead — may be made to awaken spirituality. The mark is usually made with red powder (kumkum)." [The Vivekananda Mission in England]


To put this in perspective, let us conceptionalize what the Hindus do, viewing as spectators the performance of the rite of the "Aarti" upon an idol, say, of the demoness Durga:

Aarti of the demon Ganapati

Devil-Worship!

"One should concentrate fully on the deities to whom he is offering the Aarti". [The Swaminarayan Sect]

"Aarti — waving a lamp in front of the deity — ceremony may be carried out to invoke and welcome the deity.

"We may observe the aarti ceremony — a lamp is gently waved in front of the deity in a clockwise direction.

"Tilak — mark on the forehead — may be made to awaken spirituality. The mark is usually made with red powder (kumkum)." [The Vivekananda Mission in England]


Let us go over this once again...

We have John-Paul II perform the Aarti, and permit it be performed on himself.

Let us, therefore, assume that it is the reader who is called upon to perform the Aarti upon John-Paul II...

Therefore, let us put in John-Paul's name, as the "deity" being offered the latria of Aarti...


The Satanist Wojtyla soliciting divine worship for himself!
Seeing Is Believing!

Yes! "Pope" AND God!

"One should concentrate fully on the godJohn-Paul II — to whom he is offering the Aarti".

"Tilak — mark on the forehead — may be made to awaken spirituality. The mark is usually made with red powder (kumkum)."



What the Holy Bible Teaches On The "Aarti"

All Bible quotes from the Douai-Rheims (DRV) or Msgr. Ronald Knox's versions (KV) of the Holy Bible, as approved by the Holy Catholic Church, unless otherwise specified.

Herod put on his royal finery and sat down on a raised dais to harangue them (the people of Tyre & Sidon); whereupon the people cried out in applause, It is no man, it is a god that speaks. And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, for not referring the glory to God; and he was eaten up by worms, and so he died. — Acts xii:21fl. (KV).
10 And when the multitudes had seen what Paul had done, they lifted up their voice in the Lycaonian tongue, saying: The gods are come down to us in the likeness of men. 11And they called Barnabas, Jupiter: but Paul, Mercury: because he was chief speaker. 13 Which, when the apostles Barnabas and Paul had heard, rending their clothes, they leaped out among the people, crying, 14And saying: Ye men, why do ye these things? We also are mortals, men like unto you, preaching to you to be converted from these vain things to the living God, who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and all things that are in them 17And speaking these things, they scarce restrained the people from sacrificing to them. — Acts xiv:10fl (DRV).
1 Be sure of this, that in the world's last age there are perilous times coming. 2 Men will be in love with self, in love with money, boastful, proud, abusive; without reverence for their parents, without gratitude, 3 without scruple, without love, without peace; slanderers, incontinent, strangers to pity and to kindness; 4 treacherous, reckless, full of vain conceit, thinking rather of their pleasures than of God. 5 They will preserve all the outward form of religion, although they have long been strangers to its meaning. From these, too, turn away. 6 They count among their number the men that will make their way into house after house, captivating weak women whose consciences are burdened with sin; women swayed by shifting passions, 7 who are for ever inquiring, yet never attain to recognition of the truth. 8 Moses found rivals in Jannes and Mambres; just so the men I speak of set themselves up in rivalry against the truth, men whose minds are corrupt, whose faith is counterfeit; 9 yet they will come to little, they will soon be detected, like those others, in their rash folly. 13 The rogues and mountebanks gon on from bad to worse, at once impostors and dupes. — 2 Timothy iii:1-13 (KV).
3 The time will surely come, when men will grow tired of sound doctrine, always itching to hear something fresh; and so they will provide themselves with a continuous succession of new teachers, as the whim takes them, 4 turning a deaf ear to the truth, bestowing their attention on fables instead. — 2 Timothy iv:3-4 (KV).

And The Origins of Paganisms & Idolatries

18 The wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and injustice of those men that detain the truth of God in injustice: 19 Because that which is known of God is manifest in them. For God hath manifested it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made. His eternal power also and divinity: so that they are inexcusable. 21 Because that, when they knew God, they have not glorified him as God or given thanks: but became vain in their thoughts. And their foolish heart was darkened. 22 For, professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. 23 And they changed the glory of the incorruptible God into the likeness of the image of a corruptible man and of birds, and of fourfooted beasts and of creeping things. 24 Wherefore, God gave them up to the desires of their heart, unto uncleanness: to dishonour their own bodies among themselves. 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26 For this cause, God delivered them up to shameful affections. For their women have changed the natural use into that use which is against nature. 27 And, in like manner, the men also, leaving the natural use of the women, have burned in their lusts, one towards another: men with men, working that which is filthy and receiving in themselves the recompense which was due to their error. 28 And as they liked not to have God in their knowledge, God delivered them up to a reprobate sense, to do those things which are not convenient. 29 Being filled with all iniquity, malice, fornication, avarice, wickedness: full of envy, murder, contention, deceit, malignity: whisperers, 30 Detractors, hateful to God, contumelious, proud, haughty, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Foolish, dissolute: without affection, without fidelity, without mercy. 32 Who, having known the justice of God, did not understand that they who do such things, are worthy of death: and not only they that do them, but they also that consent to them that do them.
— Romans i:18-32 (DRV).

And How The Christian Must Behave Towards Paganisms & Idolatries

14 Bear not the yoke with unbelievers. For what participation hath justice with injustice? Or what fellowship hath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? Or what part hath the faithful with the unbeliever? 16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God: as God saith: I will dwell in them and walk among them. And I will be their God: and they shall be my people. 17 Wherefore: Go out from among them and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing: 18 And I will receive you. And will be a Father to you: and you shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. — 2 Corinthians vi:14-18 (DRV).

A pagan bathes in the polluted Ganga river, reduced to a factual sewer. The pagans believe that bathing in this river, which they consider a goddess, cleanses them of all sins. Notice that the river is crowded with discarded flowers and garlands. These had been offered to the idols and are therefore called "Nirmalya", which they cannot dispose in the garbage, but must dispose into a river or the sea, thus polluting these water bodies.

How The Apostates Have Integrated This Idolatry Into Their Liturgies

The integration of the "Aarti" ceremony into the Rites of the Anti-Catholic Church, presently led by the Black Forest Vampire and Warlock Josef Ratzinger or Maledictus V is now widespread, as part of this deliberate policy.

The "Aarti" has, in fact, been made an integral — even essential — part of the fabricated rite for the apostate ex-Catholics of the Indian Union, the so-called "Indian Anaphora"!

Here is an example of the adoption of the "Aarti" having become commonplace in the Antichurch:

Aarti, Diyas in Bombay Church

Asian Age, Bombay Edition, Nov. 1, 2000. Datelined Oct. 31, Bombay. Re-Edited
On October 26, the Jesuit-run Holy Family Church, Chakala, East Andheri, Bombay, celebrated "Diwali" (or "Deepavali"), the Hindu Festival of Light.

The Church was decorated with diyas (earthern lamps) while lanterns and marigold flowers adorned the place where the service was celebrated.

The celebrating priest was welcomed with an "Aarti" performed by the nuns of the Vedruna order, and was anointed with the tilak.

The celebrant emphasised the connection between Jesus, the light of the world and the Indian Festival of Light.


The only reason that a newspaper in India should carry such an item is because of its novelty value — "Catholics" are not known to perform the "Aarti" (or 'observe' the Hindu festival of Deepavali)!

A "Fr." Emmanuel Dominic, speaking in the U.S. to the apostate publication, the "National Catholic Reporter", also betrays this adoption of idolatry, thus:

Apostate non-priest Mr. Emmanuel Dominic
This scruffy-looking man, in casual civvies, who looks more like some Govt. of India Babu, purports to be a "priest", "Fr." Emmanuel Dominic!

Looking to the Global South for orthodoxy

"Fr." Emmanuel Dominic, National Catholic Reporter, February 4, 2004.
"The Western church could also look to the Third [World] Church for the way it has adapted liturgies for different cultures.

"Indians have been particularly adept at cultural adaptation, adopting Aarti (honoring God or the priest with flowers, an oil lamp and incense sticks arranged on a steel plate) and singing bhajans (continuous recitation of the name of Jesus or the Trinity).

"Such cultural adaptations make the liturgy rich and meaningful for participants, lessons from which the West could learn."
