Yama Panchak begins Nov 01, 2013

The second greatest festival of Nepali, especially the Hindus, Tihar begins from November 1, 2013.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.Meanwhile, people across the nation have been observing the Kaag Tihar or Kaag Puja-worship of crows by offering sweets and dishes today.

According to the Hindu belief, crow is considered as the messenger of Yama, the lord of death.The cawing of the crows symbolizes sadness and grief in the Hindu mythology, so the devotees offer the crows food to avert grief and deaths in their homes.
