When Will Be Diwali Celebrated This Year?

As everyone is aware, the celebration of Diwali takes place on the new moon day of Krishna Paksha in Kartik month. And it is said that during this time, Kartikamas Krishna Paksha Chaturdashi will end on Oct 24, 2022, at 4.44 pm. This will ensure that on Oct 24, 2022, both Narak Chaturdashi and Diwali will be observed. This solar eclipse is going to occur on Oct 25, 2022, that is on Tuesday, the day of Kartika Krishna Paksha Purnima. 

However, there is nothing to be concerned about, regardless of when the eclipse begins or what day it occurs. Since the solar eclipse coincides with Siddhilav, the saints refer to it as Siddhikal.  It is said that during the solar eclipse, Lord  Rama was initiated by Guru Vasishta. Not only this, but even Shri Krishna also received his initiation from Sandipan Muni. Hence, according to the Shastras, solar eclipses that occur after sunset do not have any negative effects.
