Why are lamps made from wheat flour used for Yamadipadana?
In the Dipavali period, offering of a lamp (dipadana) is done on the three days of Dhanatrayodashi, Narakachaturdashi and Yamadwitiya. By doing dipadana a person gains radiance (Tēj). By this his vital energy increases and he gains longevity. On the day of Dhanatrayodashi the flows of Yama frequencies are active in the Universe. Hence, on this day the proportion of getting fruits of all the rituals associated with Yama Deity is higher by 30 percent as compared to other days.
