Which lamp should be lit on Thursday evening?

The importance of each day of the week is explained in Hinduism. Each day of the week is dedicated to some deity or the other. Similarly, Thursday is dedicated to Lord Vishnu and the ruling planet of Thursday is Guru i.e. Jupiter. While worshiping Lord Vishnu and Guru on this day is considered auspicious and beneficial. On the other hand, lighting a lamp on Thursday evening is also considered very important. However, just as the deities and planets are different for each day of the week, the lamp lit for each day of the week is also different. In such a situation, let us know from astrologer Radhakant Vats which lamp should be lit on Thursday evening.
