Tamil Deepavali Festival

When Amavasya tithi prevails during the month of Pradosh, Deepavali is observed throughout India i.e., just after the sunset. Diwali Pujan is around the corner, make the most on this Diwali and celebrate it with your loved ones.

But, in Tamil Nadu, Deepavali is observed when Chaturdashi Tithi prevails during Brahmamuhurta which is supposed to be just before the sunrise.

In the state of Tamil Nadu:

  • People wake up early on the day of Deepavali
  • Take bath before the sunrise
  • Wear new clothes
  • Lit earthen lamp
  • Perform puja
  • Play crackers

In the neighboring state of Karnataka, same rituals are adored by the people on the day of Chaturdashi Tithi.

Therefore, in the state of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, Chaturdashi day is considered to be most auspicious and the main day (Diwali) as well.

Unlike rest of the Indian states, crackers and earthen lamps are lit during the dawn and not in the dusk.

One more factor which is interesting is that unlike North India where Deepavali is celebrated as the arrival of Lord Rama to Ayodhya but in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, it is celebrated for the killing of demon Narakasura by Lord Krishna and Goddess Satyabhama.

It is also significant to note that relying on the beginning and ending timings of Amavasya and Chaturdashi Tithi in the Hindu Lunar Calendar.

The most significant day might fall a day prior or on the same day as falling in the North India.

We wish you a very Happy Tamil Deepavali . Also, check complete information on Govardhan Puja.
