Yama Panchak Begins

Tihar is a five-day Nepalese festival celebrated in late autumn, which comes soon after Dashain. Tihar, also known as the festival of lights or Deepawali, is celebrated from Trayodashi of Krishna Paksha (13th day of waning moon in the month of Kartik) to Kartik Shukla Dwitya (2nd day of waxing moon) every year. The five-day festival mentioned as Yama Panchak in Hindu scriptures comes right after the greatest Hindu festival of Dashain and is celebrated with much enthusiasm throughout the country. This festival is considered to be of great importance as it shows reverence to the god of death-Yama- and animals including crow, dog, cow and ox, who maintain close relationship with humans in everyday life.
