Most Malaysians already know that Deepavali (also known as Diwali in certain regions) is a celebration of light. But, did you know that the word was derived from ‘dipavali’, a Sanskrit term meaning row of lights? Symbolising the victory of light over darkness, Deepavali is observed in a variety of ways depending on region or tradition. The Deepavali Special Collection is available for same day purchase and delivery from 3rd October to 24th October 2022.
In Malaysia, Hindu devotees would normally kick off the festival by lighting up diyas (small oil lamps made from clay or mud) on the night of the new moon as an invitation for Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth. To ensure Lakshmi finds her way inside the house and blesses the residents with wealth and success, devotees would keep the doors and windows open.
Diyas are lit and placed in rows, with house floors decorated or covered with rangoli, which consists of intricate designs made of coloured rice, sand, or flower petals. Popular rangoli designs include peacocks, geometric, and floral motives. The rangoli itself is a pure fine art. The more elaborate and colourful, the more impressive; a feast for the eyes.
