Narak Chaturdashi November 2021
Narak Chaturdashi is a festival celebrated in the month of Kartik, on the 14th day of the waning moon. It is also known as Narak Chaudas, Roop Chaudas, or even Kali Chaudas. As per ancient Indian mythology, people revere the Lord of death ‘Yamraj’ with utmost devotion and adoration. As it is celebrated a day before Diwali, it is also known as Choti Diwali. On this day, people light up diyas at their homes after dusk. By lionizing the god of death, people make sure that they are absolved from the clutches of untimely death as well as pray for better health. Along with this, it is also considered very auspicious if, on this day, prior to the break of dawn, you apply sesame oil all over your body and bath with the water infused with Apamarga leaves. This shall lead you on your way to becoming fearless and would help you a great deal in your pursuit of going to heaven.
