Death during Diwali in the Family – Before or After

Many people have various worries regarding death of a family member during Diwali especially before or after. Please note that the usual procedure is that family members do not celebrate Diwali if death has happened before the festival. There is nothing else associated with the unfortunate event in the family.

Avoid being superstitious. There is nothing in Hindu scriptures that suggest that death before or after Diwali is inauspicious.

The scary ideas are mere superstitions and should be completely ignored.

Do Shradh, Tarpan and Pinda Daan as per your community belief.

Donating food or clothes on the birthday of the deceased is highly meritorious.
