- According to the Puranas, bathing of Deepdan and medicine on Chaturdashi Tithi increases the age
The Chaturdashi date of Krishnapaksha of Kartik month is celebrated as Roop Chaturdashi or Hell Chaudas. According to Skanda Purana, giving a lamp for Yamraj in the evening on this date does not lead to premature death. At the same time, Bhavishya and Padma Purana say that on Chaturdashi Tithi, one should wake up before sunrise and massage Abhyang i.e. oil and bathe the medicine. By doing this, the diseases end and age increases.
Jyotishacharya Pt Ganesh Mishra says that Chaturdashi Tithi will start from around 3 pm on November 13 till 14 in the afternoon of 2 pm. Therefore Yama Deepdan should be done on Friday evening and bathing medicine before sunrise on November 14 will be auspicious.

On the Chaturdashi date of Kartik month, to donate the light in the south direction after sunset to please Yamaraj, one never dies prematurely and all kinds of sins committed inadvertently are also eradicated. Pleased, Yama blesses healer and longevity. This does not cause any problem in the family.
According to Bhavishpuran, Chaturdashi of Krishnapaksha of Kartik month should be massaged with sesame oil before bathing. Lakshmi ji in sesame oil and Ganga ji in water have been considered. This increases the appearance and health. It is written in Padmapurana that one who takes a bath before sunrise does not go to Yamlok. Therefore, one should take a bath on this day before the sun rises.
