रूप चतुर्दशी एवं छोटी दीपावली के पावन पर्व पर सभी प्रदेशवासियों को हार्दिक मंगलकामनाएं। इस अवसर पर सभी के अच्छे स्वास्थ्य और सौंदर्य की कामना करती हूं।

Significance of celebrating Roop Chaturdashi

 As per Hindu mythology, there are certain reasons due to which Roop Chaturdashi is celebrated. People worship Yamraj, the God of death today. The festival also marks the defeat of demon Narkasur by Goddess Kali and Lord Krishna. As it is observed before the grand Diwali celebrations, hence it is called Choti Diwali.

There is also a ritual of Abhyang Snan. This holy bath is taken before the sunrise. In this, people take bath of ubtan made up of sesame oil, Gulab Jal (Rose Water) and Ganga Jal. It is believed those who take this bath on Roop Chaudas will go to heaven after their death.
