  1. In a day you can only perform one Pithru tharpanam provided it is Amavasya. If the Deepavali festival falls on Thula 1st day, even then only one tharpanam. If Diwali comes on poorna Chathurdasi then we have to perform Yama Tharpanam. If solpa Chathurdasi, this tharpanam will come on the previous day.

  2. Perhaps it is two snanams and two tarpanams [pithru tarpanam because of amavasya, and Yama tarpanam]
