As per

‘A Diya, divaa, Deepa, deepam, or Deepak is an oil lamp, usually made from clay, with a cotton wick dipped in ghee or vegetable oils.

Clay diyas are often used temporarily as lighting for special occasions, while diyas made of brass are permanent fixtures in homes and temples.

Diyas are native to India and are often used in Hindu, Sikh, Jain and Zoroastrian religious festivals such as Diwali or the Kushti ceremony.

A similar lamp called a butter lamp is used in Tibetan Buddhist offerings as well.

“Just remember, dark shadows require the presence of light, but light does not require the presence of dark in order to be luminous” Unknown


“Lights of the beautiful Sun, Moon, Stars, Diyas, Candles-so beautiful and bright!

Lights of the mobiles, tablets, computer screens of the electronics…

Ever thought, ‘why lights everywhere?

Because they’re something that removes darkness, that enlightens.

They make the light better.

That makes life a little ‘light’ swift

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
