Dhanteras

Dhanteras 


Dhanteras, which falls on the auspicious thirteenth lunar day of Krishna Paksha in the Hindu month of Ashwin,
marks the beginning of the Diwali festivities. Dhanteras is also known as "Dhantrayodashi" or "Dhanwantari Triodasi". Goddess Lakshmi is the main diety who is worshipped on this day to provide prosperity and well being. Dhanteras holds special significance for the business community, due to customary purchases of precious metals on this day. People indulge in purchasing gold and utensils, as purchasing them, on Dhanteras, is believed to bring in good luck and prosperity. Thus on this day people worship Goddess Lakshmi along with Lord Ganesha for good health and prosperity. This year, Dhanteras falls on Monday, on 5th of November.
