Narak Chaturdashi aka Choti Diwali is celebrated on 26 October across the nation. On this auspicious day, you all must have seen that people light at least one lamp or Diya on the drain of their house.

Have you ever think the reason behind this belief? Don’t worry we will tell you the mythological reason...

 

The tradition of lighting the drains symbolizes that all the negative or the destroy tamasik energies can be destroyed.

According to the hindujagruti.org, the day before Naraka Chaturdashi or the fourteenth day of the fortnight after midnight the atmosphere starts getting polluted with raja-tama frequencies, because of this day the Universe moves from the Chandra-nadi (the moon channel) into the Surya-nadi (or the Sun Channel). Due to the movement of particles loaded with raja-tama components, the sound waves generated from Pataal.

Hence, to neutralize all these waves, one should bath early in the morning, light ghee diyas and worship them. The waves emitted from diyas will help in destroying the raja-tama laden particles in the environment.

Due to these radiated particles of diyas, the raja-tama particles present in the cells of tamasik energies also melt away. Hence, it is required to light diyas near drains to destroy the negative energies coming out from the hell or narak.
