Dhanteras Date 2023

Dhanteras 2023 Date, Dhanteras Puja Muhurat, धन्वंतरि जयंती

Dhantrayodashi which is also known as Dhanteras is the first day among five days of Diwali festival and is celebrated on krishna paksh trayodashi tithi in the month of Kartik. Dhan means ‘wealth’ and Teras means 13th day. Goddess Lakshmi came out during the churning of the ocean on the day of Dhantrayodashi. Thus, Goddess Lakshmi, along with Lord Kubera who is regarded as the God of wealth, is worshipped on the day of Trayodashi. Lakshmi Puja also known as Deepawali on Amavasya after two days of Dhantrayodashi, on the other hand is considered more significant.

Dhanteras is also observed as Dhanwantari Triodasi or Dhanvantri Jayanti, the birth anniversary of the God of Ayurveda, Sri Dhanvantri. Lord Dhanvantari provided the wisdom of Ayurveda for the betterment of mankind suffering from ailments and diseases. 

Lakshmi Puja on Dhanteras or Dhantrayodashi must be done during Pradosh Kaal which starts after sunset and lasts for around 2 hours and 24 minutes.

Lakshmi Puja on Dhanteras must be done during Pradosh Kaal when Sthir Lagna prevails and this is regarded as the best time for Lakshmi Pujan. Sthir means fixed which means it does not moves. Thus to make Mata Lakshmi stay in your homes, the best time for Dhanteras Pujan is during Sthir Lagna. Vrishabha Lagna is considered as Sthir Lagna and it mostly overlaps with Pradosh Kaal on Dhanteras day. Choosing Choghadiya Muhurat for Dhanteras Puja is not good as it is considered good only for travelling. 

Hindu people across India and the world buy gold and silver jewellery or buy utensils to welcome Mata Lakshmi into their homes.
