Significance of Narak Chaturdashi

Narak Chaturdashi holds a very special place in Sanatan Dharma. Every year, the festival of Narak Chaturdashi is celebrated on Chaturdashi Tithi in Kartik month during Shukla Paksha. This festival is also known by various other names such as Roop Chaudas, Narak Chaudas, and Roop Chaturdashi, etc. Since it is celebrated a day before the festival of lights, Diwali, hence, it is also known as Choti Diwali in some parts of the country.    

The significance of this festival is important in many ways. On this very day, Yama, the god of death and justice, is worshipped. With regard to the beliefs, taking a bath with water mixed with Chirchira leaves after applying sesame oil all over the body before sunrise can help a person overcome the fear of entering hell after death. Along with this, there is a glamour on one’s face. There is another prevailing legend, which is associated with Raja Bali, Lord Vishnu, and Lord Krishna as well. So, let us know the legend.

Legend/Katha Of Narak Chaturdashi

The 2 legends have been circulated in respect of Narak Chaturdashi, out of which one is associated with Lord Krishna while the second one is related with the Vamana form of Lord Vishnu. So, let us get to know such legends.     

As per the first legend connected with Lord Krishna, there was a demon named Narkasura who by his mediation got a boon from deities that whenever he dies, it should happen through the hands of a lady. Having this boon, he started lashing out atrocities on all three worlds. Observing all this brutal treatment, Shri Krishna decided to eliminate him which he did with the help of his wife, Satya Bhama, on Chaturdashi Tithi in Kartik month. Knowing the death of Narkasura, people were so happy that they lit lamps at their houses and since then, the festival of Narak Chaturdashi is celebrated. It is also believed that Lord Krishna got 16 thousand women released from the clutches of Narkasura who later became the queens of Lord Krishna.       

The second Katha goes on that Lord Vishnu in the form of a dwarf (Vamana form) asked king Bali for two steps of land which he could measure the entire land with just two steps and asked Raja Bali where he should put the third step. In reply, the king offered his head, and observing this, Lord Vishnu was very much pleased and asked Raja Bali if he wanted any boon. The King replied in affirmative and requested to be blessed with a boon that his kingdom should prevail right from the day of Trayodashi to Amavasya every year and during this time, whosoever will celebrate Diwali in his state and offer lamps/Diyas, they would not go to hell. Lord Vamana accepted his words and since then, Narak Chaturdashi is celebrated across the country.   

Narak Chaturdashi Pujan Vidhi

  • Wake up before the sunrise on Narak Chaturdashi.

  • Then, light a lamp/Diya filled with sesame oil for Yama Devta in the south direction at the main entrance of the house.  
  • Further, worship other deities with due rituals on the evening of this very day and light a lamp filled with sesame oil outside your house, offices or shops, etc. This will help you attain the grace of Maa Lakshmi.
