Does any scriptures mention use of candles on the night of Diwâlî ?
Lighting a seasame oil or ghee based dîyâ is considered auspicious. However, these days it's more common for people to light up candles rather than an oil-lamp (dîyâ) on the night of Diwâlî. Not to forget the artificial lightings too.
So, does scriptures mention anything about candles and the significance of lighting them, either on Diwâlî or in any other setting in general?
More broadly, does candles even find a mention in any canonical scriptures?
