Diyas and Rangolis for Diwali

Diyas and Rangolis

Diyas are an essential part of the traditions, customs and festivals in many cultures around the world. They ignite the hope of happiness and prosperity wherever they are lit. Diyas are simple, small oil lamps that have a cotton wick filled with oil that burns when the diya is lit. They are an important symbol of Hinduism and the abode of the gods, Lord Vishnu. It is believed that the oil in the diya represents all the dirt (greed, lust, anger, jealousy, hatred etc) that humans nurture and the cotton wick represents the soul which needs to be rid of this materialistic world to attain enlightenment and unite with the supreme power.

Hence, lighting up a diya is a way of getting rid of all the negativity in one’s life. Diyas are also considered as symbols of purity and good luck. They also represent the victory of the light over darkness, good over evil, goodness over vice and truth over falsehood. Diyas are especially lit during the festival of Diwali which is celebrated on an Amavasya or new moon day and signifies the triumph of light over darkness, good over evil, righteousness over immorality.
