Ritual of burning an eternal flame at Gurudwara Sahibs

 

Belief or Disbelief about eternal burning flame at Gurudwaras

In old times, light of  desi ghee was kept burning all time in the Gurudwaras because it does not produce any kind of bad smells after burning. As there was no arrangement for light in the lack of electricity. But today we have all arrangements for lightening. So according to sikhism it is manmat. That ghee should be used in Guru ke Langer for the public servings.
