2017 Yama Deepam

A Deepak, for the God of death Yamaraj, is lit outside home on Trayodashi Tithi during Diwali to ward off any untimely death of any family members. This ritual is known as Deepdan for Yamraj.

The Deepak is lit outside home during Sandhya time. It is believed that Deepdan pleases Lord Yama and He protects family members from any accidental death.
