Dhanteras is a Hindu festival that is celebrated across the country two days before Diwali. This year, Dhanteras will be celebrated on 25th October, 2019. Dhanteras is also referred to as Dhantrayodashi and it holds a great significance as it marks the beginning of Diwali.
On this auspicious day, Goddess Laxmi and Lord Kuber are worshipped. ‘Dhan’ means wealth and ‘Teras’ refers to the thirteenth day in the moon cycle. According to Hindu calendar, this festival falls in the Kartika month on the thirteenth day of Kartika Krishna Paksha.
On this particular day, Goddess Lakshmi’s destroyer (marak) form is active, since it is the new moon day. The spiritual emotion of the person doing Lakshmi puja activates Goddess Lakshmi’s marak form and destroys the negative frequencies in the environment.
Lord Indra and other male deities also get drawn to the place of ritualistic worship and follow Goddess Lakshmi. Thus happiness, opulence, prosperity, stability and wealth is maintained in the premise (Vastu) by worshiping the 5 elements or Deities
Goddess Lakshmī means wealth, prosperity while alakshmi means poverty, misfortune. Development of virtues gains importance only if one overcomes defects. Just as one makes efforts to acquire wealth (Lakshmi), poverty (alakshmi) should also be destroyed. On the third day of Diwāli, in the evening, Goddess Lakshmi is worshipped and this is called as Lakshmipujan.
