Diwali and Narak Chaturdashi Coincides On The Same Day!

Know Diwali & Narak Chaturdashi Puja Muhurat & attain the blessings of Maa Laxmi & Lord Ganesha.

Diwali is occurring on 27 October this year. This festival is celebrated throughout the country with much pomp and show. All the followers of Hinduism eagerly await this celebration and fill the dark night with the light of lamps (Diyas) and their excitement. Deepavali is another name for this festival, so is Prakash Utsav due to the bright illumination of the night.

Mythology states that on this day, Lord Rama returned to his kingdom Ayodhya after killing Ravana and completing his exile (Vanvas) of 14 years. To commemorate this happiness, people light diyas in and around their homes, reminiscing of the natives of Ayodhaya, who did the same, centuries ago in welcome of Lord Rama, Lady Sita, and Lord Lakshman. Deepavali is the festival of victory of good over evil, a day of positivity. Devotees pay homage to the Gods and Goddesses to remove the negativity from their lives.

Laxmi Puja Muhurat on Diwali

Lakshmi Puja MuhuratFrom 18:44:04 to 20:14:27

Diwali According to Hindu Panchang

Diwali falls on the day of Amavasya (New Moon), i.e., when there is no moon in the sky. In the Kartik Month, during the Pradosh Kaal of Amavasya, we celebrate Deepavali and worship Goddess Mahalakshmi. If the Amavasya Tithi continues for two days and Pradosh Kaal occurs only during the second day, Diwali is celebrated on that day. There are many other beliefs associated with the commemoration of Deepavali, but this one is most prevalent. 

Things to Remember During Laxmi Puja

During Diwali, one of the major festivals of Hinduism; devotees worship Goddess Lakshmi. Additionally, we also pay homage to Lord Ganesha and Goddess Saraswati on this day. People clean their houses and places of worship because they believe that the Goddess of Wealth, Lakshmi herself descends to Earth on this day and blesses her devotees. Some important things to remember during Lakshmi Puja are:

  • Like every festival, bathing and meditating early in the morning have high importance, on Diwali as well.
  • Next, you should clean your place of worship at home.
  • Sprinkle Gangajal or Gomutra around your house to cleanse it.
  • Chant the Gayatri Mantra or ‘ऊँ नम: शिवाय/ūm̐ nama: śivāya’ to purify your heart.
  • Draw a beautiful rangoli and place diyas on it.
  • After cleaning your place of worship, spread a red cloth and establish the idols of Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Ganesha.
  • Light a diya (lamp) and offer lamp, molly/kalawa (sacred red thread), water, rice, jaggery etc. to the deities.
  • On this day, it is auspicious for the family members to stay together.
  • Distribute prasad after the puja ends and do charity according to your capabilities.

Narak Chaturdashi in 2019

Interestingly, this year, Narak Chaturdashi (Choti Diwali) and Diwali, both are occurring on the same day. This is because the dates, Chaturdashi and Amavasya, according to Hindu Panchang, are coinciding on the same day. While Chaturdashi will continue till 12:25:25 on 27 October 2019, and then Amavasya will begin, which will end at 09:10:52 next morning. Devotees worship Lord Yamraj, the God of Death on this day (Choti Diwali/Narak Chaturdashi), and pray for freedom from the fear of death (Mrityu Bhay) and untimely/premature death.

Narak Chaturdashi Puja: Things to Remember

  • One should begin the day with a clean heart and body.
  • After taking a bath, it is auspicious to massage your body with sesame oil.
  • We pray to Lord Yamraj on this day, while facing the South direction.
  • Light a diya (lamp) on the main door of your home to please Yamraj.
  • Worshipping Lord Krishna, along with Lord Yamraj, fills a person with good qualities and virtues.
  • One should clean their house during the Nishit Kaal (midnight) of Narak Chaturdashi, and throw away unnecessary things.

Why Kali Chaudas Is Celebrated

According to the beliefs, the festival of Kali Chaudas is celebrated to commemorate Lord Vishnu's victory over a demon named Narakasura. This festival is also associated with worshipping Maa Kali. This day signifies the importance of Tantric learning and carrying out Tantric acts. Also, Maa Kali is considered the goddess of Tantric teachings. It is said that if a devotee pleases Mother Kali on this day, then s/he attains Ashta Siddhi. Worshiping Goddess Kali on the day of Kali Chaudas eliminates physical and mental troubles from the lives of the devotees.

Significance of Abhyang Snan on Kali Chaudas

Abhyang Snan or Bath holds great importance on the day of Narak Chaturdashi. It is believed that if a devotee performs the bathing ritual during the auspicious time, s/he gets rid of her/his fear of death and Hell (Narak). Before taking a bath, massage your body with sesame seed oil, then put Apamarga (Chirchira) leaves in the water and then perform the Abhyang Snan. One appeases the Yamraj by following the steps and gets rid of the sins and fear of untimely death.

Kali Chaudas Puja Rituals

  • Take a bath before sunrise in the morning.
  • During this while, massage the body with sesame oil.
  • After that, circle the Apamarga i.e. Chirchira (medicinal plant) leaves around your head three times.
  • Before this, keep a water-filled urn or pot on the day of Ahoi Ashtami in Kartik Krishna Paksha.
  • On the day of Kali Chaudas, mix this water before bathing.
  • After bathing, pray to Lord Yamraj with folded hands while facing towards the South.
  • On this day, place an oil lamp or diya outside the main door of the house in regard with Lord Yamraj.
  • After worshipping all the deities in the evening, light oil lamps and place them on both sides of the door frame, outside the house and at the entrance of the workplace.
  • Worship Lord Shri Krishna on this day.
  • On this day during the Nishith Kaal (at the time of midnight), one should throw away useless things from home. This tradition is called Daridraya Nih Saaran.

Mythological Legend Related To Kali Chaudas (Narak Chaturdashi)

According to the legend, a demon named Narakasura had terrorized the Gods and Sages with his powers and took sixteen thousand women as his hostage. Troubled by the terror, all the Gods and Saints approached the divine Lord Krishna and asked for his help. Listening to their plight, the Lord assured everyone regarding the elimination of the demon.

According to a curse, Narkasur would die at the hands of a woman. Therefore, Shri Krishna, with the help of his wife Satyabhama; killed Narakasura on Chaturdashi of Krishna Paksha in Kartik month and freed sixteen thousand women from his captivity. Later on, these women were hailed as the “Patraniyan” of the Lord. After Narkasur was killed, natives celebrated the occasion by lighting diyas in their homes on the Amavasya during the month of Kartik.

Dhanteras Rules & Regulations As Per Scriptures

As per the Hindu Panchang, celebrations of Dhanteras fall in the Kartik Month. Specifically, the commemoration falls on the Uday Vyapini Trayodashi of the Krishna Paksha of this month. Thus, if the thirteenth day (trayodashi tithi) falls during the sunrise, then that day is Dhanteras or Dhantrayodashi. On this day, people also do Deep Daan to Lord Yamaraj, God of Death. 

Things To Keep In Mind When Purchasing Items On Dhanteras

  • One should not purchase a vehicle on Dhanteras, as it is not auspicious.

Dhanteras 2019: Things to Remember

Devotees of Hinduism pray to Lord Kuber, Goddess Lakshmi, and Lord Dhanvantri on Dhanteras and wish for peace, prosperity, and health in life. However, one should never sit for worship out of greed on this day. Instead, your thoughts should be of helping the needy with the money you have, and working towards the betterment of society. In fact, people believe that Goddess Lakshmi (often an allegory for wealth) will enter your home only if your heart is pure and you hold no malice for anyone. If you harbour any ill-will in your mind and have such impious thoughts, then you will not be able to attain Lakshmi - both wealth and the blessings of the Goddess).
