Diwali (otherwise know as the 'Festival of Lights') has many legends surrounding it and ancient religious beliefs:

Lights and Diwas are lit around the home to 'drive away the darkness' and to show the 'awakening of the light within ourselves'. Specifically, the lights and diwas are placed in open windows and doors to welcome the Hindu goddess of wealth Lakshmi. The lights are said to guide the goddess into the house.

The Diwali Festival is very much a time for joy, for fun and a time for family gatherings, food, and celebrations. Small gifts such as Mithai (Sweets) are often given at this time of year.

These traditional hand-made clay Diwas are used to decorate the home during the 5-days of Diwali.

As these are hand-crafted Diwas the colour/decoration may be different to that displayed in the images.

Use Vegetable Oil or Ghee with a wick.

Product of India.

Note: Care should be taken with the placement of naked flames especially where small children may be present.

Testimonial:

"Dear Spices of India, I am very Happy with your service. The delivery was prompt and trouble free, which for us is very unusual living in the outback of Portugal where it is virtually impossible for us to find any kind of spices so we end up growing most of our own, but even this has its limitations. Your web site was very user friendly and payment even easier. Once again many thanks for a Great Service. Yours sincerely,"
