Chhoti Diwali is traditionally observed the day before the main Diwali festival. The date of this year’s Choti Diwali or Kali Chaudas is October 23. On the fourteenth day of the Krishna Paksha in the month of Kartik, Choti Diwali is observed.
On the night of Chhoti Diwali, an elderly person in the family is said to light a lamp, drive it around the house, and keep it somewhere outside the house. On this day, it is also customary to honour Yam, the God of Death, but did you know that Choti Diwali is only observed the day before Big Diwali?
Rati Dev was a monarch in the past. Despite the fact that he had never sinned before, Yamdoot suddenly appeared in front of him. When the monarch realised Yamdoot was standing in front of him, he exclaimed, “I have never sinned; would I still have to go to hell?” Yamdoot responded, “O Rajan, once a Brahmin returned from your door famished, this is the fruit of the same fault,” upon hearing this.
When the monarch learned this, he gave Yamdoot a year to make amends. The Yamdoot offered the king a year. The monarch went to the rishis and explained everything to them before asking them how to resolve this conundrum.
The wise man then instructed them to feed the Brahmins while fasting on Krishna Paksha’s Chaturdashi in the month of Kartik. The monarch carried out the sage’s advice, and the sins were absolved. He then received a residence in Vishnu Lok.
Fasting and lamp-lighting became commonplace from that day forward on Kartik Chaturdashi in an effort to banish sin and hell.
