Dhanteras, also known as Dhanatrayodashi, marks the first day of the five-day Diwali festival. This day is an important Hindu religious festival and is observed all over India. Dhanteras 2017 falls on October 17. ‘Dhan’ means wealth and ‘teras’ means the thirteenth day of the moon cycle. This festival of wealth is celebrated in the month of Karthik, on the 13th day of Karthik Krishna Paksh. According to mythological stories, it is believed that on this day that Goddess Lakshmi came out of the ocean during the churning of the milky sea with a pot of gold and wealth. Some even worship Kuber, the Hindu god known as the treasurer of the world. To pay respect to them, devotees pray to Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Kuber on the auspicious day of Trayodashi.
On the occasion of Dhanteras, it is believed auspicious to purchase metals like gold and silver, and that doing so will bring prosperity and good luck for the entire family and their business ventures. In additional to new metals, people also buy new utensils. Along with buying new metals, people also decorate their homes with colourful and intricate rangoli designs to welcome Lakshmi. Vermillion powder along with rice flour is used to create small footprints to signify the glorious arrival of the goddess.
During the auspicious period of Dhanteras, it is believed Lakshmi stays inside the home and, hence, it is considered the best time during the festival of Diwali. This Dhanteras wish all your loved ones with special messages, texts images.
