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, We just had to thank you for such a speedy service!! Our order arrived less than 24 hours after having been placed, most impressive. Although we live in an area with plenty of local shops selling spices, it was great to be able to source everything from just one place & we are also pleased that every product ordered carried a long future use by date. We were so pleased with your site that we replaced all our existing spices & ordered several we have yet to try. We are very impressed & will recommend to friends! Thank you!"
