Also known as Diwali and Deepawali, this year’s festivities begin November 4 with Dhanteras, and last for five days. Gold is a traditionally popular gift during this period, and we look forward to helping clients select superb precious pieces.
What is Diwali?
Commonly referred to as the festival of lights, this holiday includes the darkest night of the year, and celebrates the triumph of light over darkness, supporting spiritual prosperity and knowledge. Many beautiful historical stories are entwined with Diwali.
Here in Western Australia, Diwali holds religious meaning for various communities. Linked to a number of traditional legends, beliefs, and practices, Diwali is an important Indian holiday that has been celebrated for thousands of years.
Lord Ganesha, Goddess Lakshmi, and the gift of gold
Buying gold during Diwali is a way of inviting good luck and wealth into the household for the coming year. It is viewed as especially favourable to purchase gold on the first day of Diwali, often referred to as Dhanteras.
Among those worshipped during the festival are Goddess Lakshmi, goddess of wealth and prosperity and Lord Ganesha, lord of wisdom, art, and science. Without the presence of intelligence, there is no point to wealth.
