Kali Chaudas

Kali Chaudas is expanded as the fourteenth day dedicated to worshipping Goddess Kali. Celebrated in the month of Ashwin on the Chaturdashi in Krishna Paksha (waning phase of moon), Kali Chaudas falls a day before Diwali celebrations. Mythology says it was on this day that Mother Kali destroyed the evil demon Raktabhija. Kali Chaudas marks the destruction of darkness and the lighting of the lamp of divinity, positivity and courage. It prepares the necessary ground for the Diwali celebrations.

Hanuman Puja

On the day of Kali Chaudas, Hanuman is also worshipped in order to save us from the evil, wickedness and the adversities of life. Mythology says Diwali was meant to worship Lord Ram during his victorious return to Ayodhya. However, Lord Ram insisted that Hanuman be worshipped before him on the day of Kali Chaudas in order to honor his valuable contribution to fight against Ravan.

Kali Chaudas rituals

On the day of Kali Chaudas, some delicacies are made from semi-cooked rice or poha. People wake up early in the morning and take a holy bath. Applying kajal in the eyes on this day is believed to keep the negativity away. On this day, people who perform tantra learn the mantras. People also offer foods to their local deities which are the different manifestations of Mother Kali. This day is also dedicated to offering foods to their forefathers. The central theme of all the events that happen on this day is worshipping the divine in different forms to fight the negativity and adversities in life.
