Padmini dhoop has a spiritual reason behind lighting. It is so believed that the rings of smoke that rise high into the air carry our prayers to the gods. It inspires your thoughts to be pure and beautiful. The aroma that is spread in the air after you light an dhoop stick has an immense healing and soothing effect on the mind. You become mentally relaxed and forget all other troubles and worries when you sit for a religious ceremony. This helps you concentrate and pray to the lord with all your heart and soul. When you offer a prayer with great devotion it acts like a meditative process that reduces stress and depression.
