Narak Chaturdashi is celebrated by worshipping Goddess Kali who had slain the demon Narkasura. The motive of the puja is to get rid of wickedness in order to bring light into the life. People also light diyas and get together with their family on this festival. The ingredients required for puja are oil, flowers, agarbatti, camphor, diya, sweets, coconut, aarti and thali etc. People think that washing head and applying kajal in their eyes keeps them away from the bad sights. The persons associated with tantra consider that practicing their mantras on this day would increase the power of their tantras.

According to another Hindu mythology it is believed that Narakasur, who is said to be the son of Mother Earth, had turned into an evil. To defeat Narakasur, Lord Indra had appealed to Lord Vishnu to defeat the demon of the hell. Lord Vishnu in his Lord Krishna avatar through his divine and super powers attacked Narakasur along with his wife Satyabhama and ended his life by beheading with his Sudarshan Chakra (This Chakra is a spinning, disk-like weapon, literally meaning “vision of which is auspicious,” having 108 serrated edges used by the Hindu god Vishnu).

Another epic in Hindu mythology says that Narakasur, the king of the hell, had kidnapped Lord Krishna’s female friends, who are referred to as gopis in Hindu mythology. Seeking revenge from Narakasur and in order to save gopis, Lord Krishna, who has his following and influence all across the world, defeated the Narakasur.




Yama ; Narak Chaturdarshi ;Choti Diwali Narak Chaturdarshi ;Choti Diwali



According to another Hindu mythology, There was a spiritual king called Ranti Deva who was very spiritual and devoted himself to service of mankind. One day Yama (death of god)came to claim his soul. The king asked Yama why he was sending him to hell since he had never committed a sin in his life, to which Yama replied that he had once returned a hungry a priest. The king asked Yama for one more year of life, which he was granted. After this incident, the king met with saints who asked him to observe a fast on Narak Chaturdashi and offer food to priests to apologise for past mistakes and get relief from past sins.It is believed that people can absolve themselves of sins on Narak Chaturdashi and prevent themselves from going to hell (Narak).

Therefore, Choti Diwali or Narak Chaturdashi is a symbol of preventing yourself from hell. It is believed that by practising the rituals with a pure heart and soul on Narak Chaturdashi, one can prevent from going to hell. A holy bath (Abhyang Snan) is also conducted on Narak Chaturdashi as part of festival ritual to ignore the call of the hell.
