Sparkling Diwali Quotes About The Diya Lights

Observing Diwali is very vibrant, but the epitome of the festival's preparation is the lighting of Diyas, which are clay lamps with a cotton wick dipped in ghee. Based on Vastu shastra, which in simple terms is an Indian version of China's Feng Shui, the ghee symbolizes the mind's negativities while the wick signifies the soul. Hence, the lighting of the diyas represents our transformation from darkness to light.
