The Importance of Lighting Diyas on Diwali

One of the first things that cross the mind when one thinks about Diwali and Laxmi Pujan are the lighting of Diyas. Diyas come in different varieties, but the most common and popular variety is the clay or the earthen Diya, even these Diyas range from the simple clay one to the most beautiful decorative hand designed Diya.

The Diya symbolize the flame or fire as the light, which puts an end to darkness, hence Hindus attach great importance to the lighting of Diyas in their homes.  A lot of Hindus consider it auspicious to light a Diya in front of their Puja Place at dusk.

The Diya also symbolizes purity and some Hindus believe that the lighting of a Diya in their Puja Place or near the entrance of their home or in from of a Tulsi Plant [Holy Basil Plant] attracts harmonious vibrations and purity into their homes.

The festival of Diwali symbolizes the victory of truth over darkness, hence it is considered all the more auspicious to light Diyas near the main entrance of homes, offices and business premises during the period of Diwali.

Given below are selections of the images of beautiful handcrafted Diyas prepared by my wife during a workshop conducted by her to teach underprivileged women the art of making Diyas to enable them to start a side business of Diya Making, especially for the Diwali festival.

I take this opportunity to wish all our readers and subscribes a most happy and prosperous Diwali, May the wishes and desires of everyone be fulfilled during the auspicious occasion of Diwali.
