Diwali, the Festival of Lights, holds immense cultural and spiritual significance in India, with people adorning their homes and engaging in elaborate shopping preparations in anticipation of the festivities. Depending on one’s budget and individual preferences, it can be wise to consider purchasing specific items that align with their zodiac sign for added auspiciousness during the festival.
Pandit Ganesh Sharma, a revered authority in the Alwar district, highlights the significance of following auspicious yoga during Diwali for making purchases. He notes that on November 4 and 5, when Pushya Nakshatra coincides with Ashta Yoga, it is deemed highly propitious to buy items such as vehicles, jewellery, and real estate, initiate business ventures, register properties, and make agreements. This period is believed to be a golden opportunity for individuals to embark on new beginnings and investments.
In today’s digital age, online shopping has gained widespread popularity as an alternative means of celebrating Diwali, offering convenience and accessibility. Therefore, individuals are encouraged to make purchases that align with their personal preferences and requirements to make the most of this auspicious time.
