Chhoti Diwali is celebrated before Diwali. Which is also known as Jamak Diya. But it is correctly called Yama's lamp. This lamp must be lit outside the house. There are many benefits from this. Along with the removal of poverty from home, ancestors also get blessings. Pandit Gulshan Jha gave special information regarding this. He said that this lamp has great importance. By lighting this lamp many of your obstacles are removed. There is a story behind this. So let's know this story.
When the goddess said don't celebrate
The Pandit said that there is a story behind lighting the lamp of Yama. There was an incident when a king had a son. During this time people started celebrating. Then the goddess appeared and told her not to celebrate. He will die four days after the marriage. Ultimately the same thing happened, he died four days after the marriage. Then he asked Yamraj whether there was no way to escape from him. Then he said that there are many ways to save me. If you light a lamp one day after Dhanvantri day, it has less effect on you. Since then, this lamp started burning exactly one day after Dhanteras.
Set traps in this direction
Pandit Gulshan Jha said that this lamp should be lit outside the house or on a pile of rice facing south. You can light this lamp by adding oil and ghee to it. Due to this there will be no conflict in your house. There will be an atmosphere of peace. No untoward incident or accident will occur. This lamp should be lit in cow dung or clay lamp only. You can also burn it on the dung heap or you can burn it at the main entrance of the house. If you use a four-sided lamp along with this then it will be even better for you.
