Hey! 🙂 Today is Dhnateras. The word Dhanteras is derived from the Sanskrit word “Dhantrayodashi” – consisting of two words “Dhan” which is wealth and “teras” or “Trayodashi” means 13th Lunar day of Krishna Paksha as per Hindu Kartik calendar. Dhanteras is the first day of five days of Diwali celebrations.
The word ‘Dhan’ is related to Goddess Lakshmi. On this auspicious day, Goddess Lakshmi is worshipped and since she symbolizes wealth, it is supposed to shower wealth to her worshipers.
Dhanteras has a special impact in the business world. On this auspicious occasion, businesses organise pujas in their offices and decorate it. People buy gold ware, silverware and steel utensils as it’s also considered auspicious.
So let’s start celebrating this beautiful festival of lights from today! 🙂
Happy Dhanteras to all of you 🙂 May this Dhanteras bring prosperity to you and your family!!!!
