Dhanteras 2023: Timing, City-Wise Shubh Muhurat, And Significance Of Auspicious Day | Culture News

Dhanteras, also known as Dhanvantari Trayodashi, marks the beginning of Diwali festivities. “Dhanteras is a combination of two words. The word ‘Dhan’ translates to wealth. The word ‘Teras’ refers to the 13th lunar day of the Krishna Paksha in the Hindu calendar,” shares Gurudev Shrie Kashyap, Chairman and Founder of All India Institute of Occult Science and True Vastu. Dhanteras 2023 is being celebrated on November 10. Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Kuber are also worshipped on this day and people buy utensils, gold and silver, jewellery, brooms and other things to usher prosperity and peace into their homes. It is also believed by Hindus, that during the ‘Samudra Manthan’, among the 14 things that emerged from the ‘churning of the seas’ – one of them was Lord Dhanvantri carrying a Kalash full of the Amrit in one hand and the sacred scriptures about Ayurveda in the other. Lord Dhanvantri (also considered an avatar of Vishnu), Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Yama are also worshipped on this day.
