Yama Deepam

A Deepak, for the God of death Yamaraj, is lit outside home on Trayodashi Tithi amid Diwali to avoid any less than ideal demise of any relatives. This custom is known as Deepdan for Yamraj.

The Deepak is lit outside home amid Sandhya time. It is trusted that Deepdan pleases Lord Yama and He shields relatives from any inadvertent passing.
