Rituals on the Diwali Festival

Diwali Festival is the most well-known Indian festival as it is celebrated all throughout the country as well as in Indian communities all over the world. It is also known as the Festival of Lights in colloquial language because of the practice of lighting small oil lamps and placing them all around. The lamps are often placed inside the house, on the rooftops, the outer walls, the veranda, the courtyards, and even in the gardens.

Neon lights and candles may be used as substitute for the traditional small oil lamps, depending on the region observing this practice. Aside from lighting oil lamps, the celebration also entails an exchange of sweets and lighting of fireworks. Diwali is celebrated for different reasons in all parts of India. As an example, it signifies the homecoming of Rama in North India after he defeated Ravana. In Gujarat, the festival of lights is celebrated to honour Lakshim, the goddess of wealth. In Bengal, the celebration is for the goddess Kali. In the general tradition, the Diwali festival signifies a renewal of life.

The festival is celebrated for five days accompanied with different rituals per day. Day one is called Dhanteras. People often do renovations and decorate their houses and workplaces on this day. They also make the traditional Rangoli motifs on the entrances. The second day is celebrated by taking a bath even before the sun rises and anointing themselves with oil and Ubtan. The exchange of sweets with relatives and friends is coupled with wearing new clothes by the third day. The fourth day which is called Govardhan-Puja calls for the people to go to the temples and bathe the deities in milk and clothed them in precious garments. After that, there are offerings for the deities. The fifth day is Bhai Duj wherein sisters invite their brothers to their homes to give them delicacies while brothers give gifts in return.
