The Ramma in siman 131 siff 2 brings from the Beis Yosef who quotes a Rokeach --
The Rokeach also writes in siman 324 not to 'fall' unless in front of a seffer torah. And a siman for this is found in the war against Ay (Yehoshua 7, 6) 'and he fel lon his face in front of the aron'."
The Beis Yosef concludes by saying if it's accepted (kabbala), he'll ...
The Rema in Shulchan Aruch (131:1) writes that at Shacharit (or Mincha;see Mishne Berurah 7) when one wears tefillin, to lean on the right in deference to the tefillin and when not wearing tefillin (e.g. during Mincha or even Shacharit if there is no tefillin on his left arm) he leans on the left side.
Nissan starts without Tachnun because it is the time when the Mishkan was inaugurated - that is the first 12 days. Then the 13th is the Isru Chag of those 12 days (The Tzemach Tzedek quoting the Maharil), and then there is no Tachnun on the 14th because the Korban Pesach was brought, and then Pesach. So there is no opportunity to say Tachanun until the ...

Tachanun on Erev Yom Ha-Atzmaut
It is proper to recite Tachanun at Minchah of Erev Yom Ha-Atzamaut, as the Chief Rabbinate of Israel has decreed this day "Remembrance Day for the Fallen Soldiers of Tzahal," which is a day of mourning.

Rivivos Efraim 8 page 400 says that one should say Tachanun at a Bar Mitzva and also has a letter from Rabbi Nosson Gestetner which says that Tachanun should be said at a Bar Mitzva as it is not listed in Orach Chaim 131:4-6 as one of the times it should not be said.
See also Minchas Yitzchak 8:11 where he mentions that the Minchas Elazar did not say ...
The Aruch Hashulchan (131:7) and Mishnah Berurah (131:3) both say that one should cover his face with a cloth and not merely one's hand, because a person's own flesh can't be considering a covering for itself.
If one is wearing short sleeves (assuming that one is allowed to pray in short sleeves...) than it appears that covering one's face with the arm ...
In SA OC 607 the Magen Avraham brings two reasons for this custom:
1) The Ari Z"L says that one should pound on their chest
2) A Medrish Kohelet that says "We bang on our hearts to show that that it (the heart) is what lead us astray"
Now I think both sources are expressing the same idea BUT in this case perhaps we can say that -
According to the ARI Z"L ...
Qitzur Shulhhan Arukh - Yalqut Yosef (Orahh Hayim 131:36) states:
אלו הימים שאין אומרים בהם וידוי ונפילת אפים לא בשחרית ולא במנחה: חודש ניסן, פסח שני, ל''ג בעומר, מראש חודש סיון עד י''ב בו ועד בכלל, תשעה באב, ט''ו באב, ערב ראש השנה וערב יום הכפורים, מי''א תשרי עד ב' חשון. שמונת ימי החנוכה, ט''ו בשבט, י''ד וט''ו אדר א' ואדר ב'. וראשי חודשים.
ואפילו בימים שאין אומרים תחנון אומרים למנצח מלבד בראש חודש וחנוכה ופורים וע"פ וערב יום כפור וט"ו באב [מנהגים וע"ל סי' תקנ"ט]:
Even on days where tachanun is not said we say Lamnatzeiach except Rosh Chodesh, Chanukah, Purim, Erev Pesach, Erev Yom Kippur, and Tu B'Av.

See here where they suggest:
1 they often daven until after shkiya, and according to many opinions
tachanun may not be said after shkiya, so a blanket rule was
instituted so as never to come to saying after shkiya, which in some
kabbalistic sources danger is associated with this practice.
2 tachanun by mincha requires intense concentration, ...
From R' Dov Lior's answer at Yeshiva.org.il:
הסיבה לכך היא, שכל עניין "פסח שני" מתחיל מהבוקר ואין שום עניין בלילה. את קרבן פסח שני עשו בבוקר, ובלילה לא עושים שום דבר (בניגוד לשאר חגים). ולכן כל העדות צריכות לומר תחנון.
The reason for this is that the whole concept Pesach sheini starts from the morning and there is nothing related to the evening. ...
It seems from this story that if an individual doesn't say Tachanun for most of the month for a private reason (with exception of Nissan where everyone doesn't say Tachanun for most of the month and therefore the whole month) one still does Tachanun at any given opportunity when one can

R. YM Tucazinsky writes in Ir Hakodesh Vehamikdash vol. III ch. 26 p. 355 that those in Jerusalem recite neither tachanun nor lamnatzeiach on Sunday 16 Adar.

There is no "Nefilat Apayim" [what we consider to be "Tachanun"] at night...
Mishnah Berurah there (note 16, based on Beit Yosef) argues that this ruling is based on kabbalistic reasons. There is a general discussion as to when halachic night begins; ...
R Eliezer Melamed in Peninei Halacha (Tefila 21:7) writes we do not say Tachanun on Erev Yom Haatzmaut
Today, ever since Hashem began to bring forth our redemption, Tachanun
is not recited on Yom HaAtzma’ut (Israel’s Independence Day), and on
the 28th of Iyar, Yom Yerushalayim (Jerusalem Liberation Day), nor at
Minchah before each of them
This is ...
See this - You're not the 1st person to have asked this.
Is it more important to say Vehu Rachum or to say Tachanun?
What happens if there is insufficient time to recite both Vehu Rachum
and the rest of the Tachanun together with the tzibur?
It seems that one should recite Tachanun with the tzibur and “Vehu
Rachum” after davening.
From what i understand, it is for the same reason that there's no tachanun during Nisan. (See Tachnun in Nissan)
There, once we aren't saying tachanun during most of the month (first because of the Nesiyim, then Pesach), we don't say for the rest. Here to, once we have skipped tachanun for most of the month, we don't say it for the rest of the month. First ...
Igros Moshe Orach Chaim 3:89 - last paragraph says that if ones Nusach is not to say Vidui & 13 Midos, and is in a Shul that does say Vidui & 13 Midos, he should definitely say the Vidui & 13 Midos. He says one has to follow the Minhag of the Shul he is Davening in, in any situation where it is noticeable.
Rabbi David Lau says that one who Daven'...
This Young Israel publication says (summarised) that
in cases of doubt or of differing views the poskim say to tendsto leniency with regard to tachanun. One should omit tachanun, rather than include it. Some suggest the reason based on the inclusion of the shlosh esrai midos. which should never be recited without proper kavanah. However, not all versions ...
My rav explained that Tachanun (which, is part of your question, per se, not necessarily the direct reason why Avinu Malkeinu) is omitted on occasions of either "extreme" - extreme joy or extreme sadness.
Yom Tov is "extreme joy" so Tachanun is omitted.
In a house of mourning during the week of shiva, Tachanun is also omitted. This is a location & time ...
See Mishna B'rura (108:11), who indicates that the repetition of the amida does not create a problematic interruption since the person is still involved in the first prayer. Thus, it appears that the person should wait and say tachanun and ashrei with the congregation.
Mishna B'rura (131:24, Shaar Hatziyun :21) says those who pray in the synagogue's lobby without an aron (cabinet for the Torah scrolls) and teva (lectern) are thereby "drawn after" the synagogue and so skip tachanun if the b'ris will be in the main synagogue (and even if the participants in the b'ris are absent for the service). It seems from his wording ...
According to Halacha Berurah 131:2, a Sepharadi davening with Ashkenazim needs to say vidui, and the 13 midot. Apparently, he should say the 13 midot with ta'amim (as he would if he were davening alone - 131:9).
If it's a Monday or Thursday, he should just say the first instance of the 13 midot. In the other times it appears in the extended tachanun,...
The ArtScroll RCA siddur (Kol Yaakov) is more clear about it (page 132), specifically saying to keep your head down until יבשו רגע (the end of that paragraph).
