Diwali and the significance of Saffron in Indian Culture

Diwali (also referred to as Deepavali or Dipavali), the festival of lights, is 5 day festival that is celebrated around the world as one of the most significant Indian festivities. 

The festival is celebrated for many reasons, some of which include the triumph of light light over darkness (or good over evil). 

To celebrate Diwali, homes are decorated with colorful lights, candles and huge fireworks. Families also share love and gifts. 

Indian desserts are not not only flavour rich, but because of the use of saffron in most desserts, it brings a beautiful color to the festivity. 

In India, colors assume a critical part in the society. This is due to the fact that is demonstrates a significance that is above decorative values.  A color that symbolises all parts of Hinduism is Saffron, the color of Agni or fire. 

The flame burns away the darkness, brings light, symbolises the burn of ignorance and begins a shiny new chapter. 

We recommend buying 20 grams or more for this coming Diwali,  so stock up on the Saffron!
