Dhanteras 2023 Shopping Muhurat Live: Hello and welcome to this place. We invite you to stay tuned to our live blog for the latest updates on the nationwide celebration of Dhanteras 2023. Find out the traditions, customs, rules and essential insights about this auspicious festival happening all over India.

In India’s rich array of cultural diversity, festivals serve as the threads that intricately bind communities together. Each festival has its own unique significance, customs and rituals. Amidst this diverse celebration, Diwali emerges as an important festival which lasts for five days.

The festivities will start with Dhanteras tomorrow on November 10, 2023 and it will end with Bhai Dooj on November 15, 2023.

What is Dhanteras?

Dhantrayodashi, also known as Dhanteras, marks the beginning of the five-day Diwali festivities. It symbolizes the day when Goddess Lakshmi emerged from the ocean during the churning of the milky ocean. As a result, on this auspicious Trayodashi day, Goddess Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth, is revered along with Lord Kubera. However, it is important to note that Lakshmi Puja performed on Amavasya, two days after Dhantrayodashi, has greater significance.

Dhanteras 2023: Puja method

To perform Lakshmi puja on Dhanteras or Dhantrayodashi, it is advised to do so during Pradosh Kaal, which starts after sunset and usually lasts for about 2 hours and 24 minutes. It is important to avoid selecting Choghadiya Muhurat for Dhanteras Puja, as these Muhurats are mainly suitable for travel purposes. The most auspicious time for Lakshmi puja on Dhanteras is during the Pradosh period, which coincides with the Sthira Lagna, a fixed, non-movable ascendant. Performing Dhanteras puja during Sthira Lagna ensures the presence of Goddess Lakshmi in your home, making it an ideal time for Dhanteras puja. Vrishabha Lagna, which is considered to be a fixed ascendant, usually aligns with Pradosh Kaal during Diwali celebrations.

Importance of Dhanteras:

Dhanteras puja, also known as Dhantrayodashi, holds dual significance. It not only marks the beginning of Diwali but is also celebrated as Dhanvantari Trayodashi or Dhanvantari Jayanti, which celebrates the birth anniversary of Dhanvantari, the god of Ayurveda. Additionally, Yamadeep is a ritual observed on this Trayodashi tithi when lamps are lit outside homes to appease Yama, the god of death, and to protect family members from untimely death.
