The five days of the Diwali festival start in Dhantrayodashi and last the day of Bhaiya Dooj. Abhayang Snan was suggested in three days, that is, at the time of Chaturdashi, Amavasya and Pratipada during Diwali.
Abhyang Snan the day of Chaturdashi, who is popularly known as Narak Chaturdashi, is the most significant. It is thought that the people who make Abhyang Snan that day can avoid going to Narak. Til oil (ie, sesame) should be used for Ubtan during Abhyang Snan.
Abhyang Snan on Narak Chaturdashi might be the day before or the same day the day of Lakshmi Puja in the English calendar. When Chaturdashi Tithi wins before dawn and Amavasya Tithi wins after sunset, Narak Chaturdashi and Lakshmi Puja fall the same day. Abhayang is always ready during the rising of the moon but before dawn while Chaturdashi is the current.
Our Muhurta window for Abhyang Snan is between moonrise and sunrise, while Chaturdashi Tithi wins. We provide Abhyang Snan Muhurta exactly as prescribed in Hindu religious texts. We consider all the exceptions and we will find the best date and time for Abhyang Snan.
The day of Narak Chaturdashi is also known as Choti Diwali, Roop Chaturdashi and Roop Chaudas.
Narak Chaturdashi is often considered the same as Kali Chaudas. However, both are two different festivals that are observed in the same Tithi and, depending on the start and end time of Chaturdashi, Tithi could fall on two different consecutive days.
