Narak Chaturdashi

Narak Chaturdashi is celebrated in the dark fortnight (Krishna Paksha) in the Hindu Kartik month on Chaturdashi Tithi (fourteenth day). This day is dedicated to the victory of Lord Krishna over the wicked demon king Narakasur. It is also known by different names in different areas, namely –Narak Chaudas, Narak Chaturdashi Puja, Kali Chaudas, or Roop Chaudas.

The word "Kali Chaudas" is the amalgamation of two words; where Kali means dark (eternal) and Chaudas means fourteenth, hence Kali Chaudas is celebrated on the fourteen day of the dark half of Asvin month. It is believed that the persons related to the tantra practice, consider that practicing their mantras on Chaturdashi Tithi at this day would increase their Tantra Shakti (power).
