Millions of Hindus around the world celebrate Diwali, the festival of lights, with great zeal and enthusiasm. This celebration is not an anomaly in Australia. With every year that goes by, the celebration of Diwali grows more colourful and diverse as the Indian community in Australia expands.
When Is Diwali 2023 In Australia?
Deepavali, another name for Diwali, is celebrated on the fifteenth day of the Hindu month of Kartik. Diwali falls on Monday, November 13, 2023, with this day serving as the primary celebration day.
Several Australian states observe it as a public holiday, and numerous Indian communities host elaborate celebrations. Usually, the festival lasts for five days, with special events taking place each day.
Diwali is a three-day festival that is marked by the lighting of diyas, or oil lamps, the shooting of fireworks, and gift-giving. Families get together, get dressed up, and pray to the gods during this time.
What Time Is Diwali Pooja In Australia?
Worshipping the goddess of wealth and success, Laxmi Puja, is a crucial component of Diwali festivities. An important factor in Laxmi Puja scheduling is that it changes annually according to the lunar calendar.
Since the Laxmi Puja Muhurat occurs in the evening of 2023, it will play a big role in the celebrations around Diwali 2023. To welcome the goddess Laxmi into their homes, devotees clean their houses, make beautiful rangoli designs at their doorsteps, and light oil lamps.
Worshipping Laxmi on Diwali is said to bestow wealth and success upon one’s household and business.
