Happy Dhanteras!

Dhanteras

Happy Dhanteras everyone!! :)

Dhanteras is the first day of the five-day Diwali festival as celebrated in India. The festival, known as “Dhanatrayodashi” or “Dhanvantari Trayodashi”.The word Dhan means wealth and Teras means 13th day as per Hindu calendar. It is celebrated on the thirteenth lunar day of Krishna paksha (dark fortnight) in the Hindu calendar month of Ashwin.

On Dhanteras Hindus consider it auspicious to purchase gold or silver articles or at least one or two new utensils. It is believed that new“Dhan” or some form of precious metal is a sign of good luck.

I hope you have a prosperous and healthy year and may goddess Laxmi (the goddess of wealth) bestow all her love and blessing on you.
