Narak Chaturdashi

Narak Chaturdashi is celebrated a day before Diwali on the following day of Dhanteras. It falls on the fourteenth day during the Krishna Paksha (waning phase of moon) in the month of Ashwin. This day marks the important event of the killing of Narakasura by Sri Krishna. Hence this day is a kind of celebrating the victory of good over the evil. In honor of Goddess Kali who is a powerful force against the wicked forces, this day is also called as Kali Chaudas.

Purifying bath on Naraka Chaturdashi

On the day of Naraka Chaturdashi, people wake up very early in the morning. Having a holy dip in sacred waters is considered very auspicious on this day. Those who cannot make it can take bath in their homes. If possible, they add a few drops of the holy water of the Ganges River in the water they bathe. Hence the popular custom of asking each other, “Did you have Ganga Snan?” is observed in some parts of the country. This bath is also significant as inner cleansing.

Happy celebrations

This day is celebrated in a happy tone. People light lamps, do Kali Puja and Lakshmi Puja and also fire crackers. They wear new clothes and spend the day with their family and friends. The whole day is for rejoicing and merriment. Very few events on the earth can match with the fun and colors associated with the Diwali celebrations. Naraka Chaturdashi is fully intertwined with Diwali celebrations and it is difficult to see it as a separate occasion.
