    Dear Chitra,
    Dhan Theras (Trayodashi) is to-day. Please clarify if the Deepam should be lit to-day or to-morrow.

    Regards
    USHA

    Hello Usha !

    Today is Thrayodashi, but there is some "micham" tomorrow which is taken into calculation for lighting it tomorrow. This is the Pundit's explanation.
    There is nothing wrong in doing it on both the days, I think !
    Love & regards,
    Chithra.

    Thank you Chitra

    Dear Chitra,
    Right..As you said, I will light the lamps to-day and to-morrow. I have even informed my best friend (whose husband has been in the hospital for about 3 months) to light the lamps. She was very touched when I mentioned about your explanation on Yama Deepam.
    Once again, we wish you and your family a very Happy Deepavali.
    Regards
    USHA & FAMILY

    My dear Usha !

    I am touched by your concern for your friend. Please tell her that I will also join you in praying for her husband's good health. I always believe, more things are wrought by prayer than this world dreams of !
    Love & regards,
    Chithra.

    Dear Chitra,
    A few questions:

    This year should the yama deepam be lighted on Sunday night?
    When is the Lakshmi puja to be done? Is it on Tuesday? Please confirm.
    Also can the yama deepam be left on the patio (balcony)? Or is it better to leave it outside the main door.

    Thanks for all your help.
    Love
    Hema
