What is Dhanteras Puja?
The bright auspicious day of Dhanteras reminds us of wealth, prosperity, business, success as well as reverence of Goddess Lakshmi. This day spreads the air of happiness and brightness all around with chirpy smiling faces of devotees, adoring Ma Lakshmi for her gracious blessings. It is said that on the day of Dhanteras, Dhanvantari came out of the sea holding the pot of nectar after Samudra Manthan; therefore it is also known as Dhanvantari Jayanti. Thus Dhan means ‘wealth’ and Teras means ‘thirteen’ so this day is celebrated on the thirteenth day of Krishan paksha in Kartik month. Dhanteras Puja is the perfect way to please Goddess Lakshmi for staying in your house throughout the year and flourishing peace and success. People buy new utensils or gold and silver ornaments to bring good luck at their home.
