🌷 Yama Deepdan on the day of Dhanteras 🌷
➡ 22 October 2022 Saturday is Dhanteras.
🙏🏻 Yama-Deepdan must be done on this day. Doing so eliminates the fear of premature death. It is the only day in the year when the god of death, Yamaraja, is worshiped only by offering lamps. Some people also offer lamps on Narak Chaturdashi.
👉🏻 It is written in Skanda Purana
🌷 On the thirteenth day of the dark fortnight of Kartik, at the beginning of the night.
If one offers the lamp of Yama outside, death and death are destroyed.
➡ That is, on the thirteenth day of Krishna Paksha in the month of Kartik, in the evening, placing a lamp outside the house for the purpose of Yamadeva prevents death.
👉🏻 It is written in Padma Purana
🌷 On the thirteenth day of the dark fortnight of Kartik, in the fire.
If one gives out the lamp of Yama, immortality is destroyed.
➡ On the thirteenth day of Kartik Krishna Paksha, one should give a lamp to Yamaraja outside the house. This destroys inaccessible death.
🔥 Yama-deepdan simple method
Yamadipadana should be done at dawn. Take a large lamp of flour for this. The lamp made of wheat flour has the ability to calm the dark energy waves and the emergency dark waves (these waves are the cause of death). Then take a clean cotton ball and make two long lights. Place them horizontally in the lamp so that the four faces of the lights are visible outside the lamp. Now fill it with sesame oil and also add some black sesame seeds. At dawn, worship the lamp prepared in this way with rolls, akshat and flowers. Then, outside the main door of the house, a little khil or wheat is made into a pile and the lamp is placed on top of it. Before placing the lamp, light it and place the four-faced lamp on top of a pile of khil etc. facing south direction (south direction is nurturing for Yama waves i.e. Yama waves are attracted and projected in large quantity from south direction). Put it down. Say ‘Om Yamadevaaya Namah’ and offer obeisances in the southern direction.
🔥 Yama Deepdan Mantra :
Mrityana Pasandabhyam Kaleen Shyamaya Sah |
Trayodashyam Deepadanat Suryajah Priyatam Mama ||
➡ This means, on Dhantrayodashi, I offer this lamp to the son of the sun, that is, to Yama. May they free me from the noose of death and bring me welfare.
