Dhanteras marks the first day of Diwali week. This week of celebrations also includes Choti Diwali, Diwali or Deepavali, Bhai Dooj and Govardhan Puja. The festival of Dhanteras is also known as Dhanatrayodashi or Dhanvantari Trayodashi. It is believed to be an auspicious day to buy gold or utensils. The word ‘Dhan’ in Hindi refers to wealth. It is believed that big purchases made on this day yield prosperity and good luck. Therefore, on Dhanteras, many people make token purchases of utensils, and shopping portals come up with attractive offers.
This year, Dhanteras is being celebrated on Thursday, November 12. On Dhanteras, people light a diya outside their homes and do Lakshmi Pooja. Pooja muhurat is between 4:57 PM and 6:50 PM. According to drikpanchang.com, Lakshmi Puja on Dhanteras should be done during Pradosh Kaal after sunset.
