Dhanteras 2023

While you may think that the festive season is on the verge of its end, it needs to be noted that some prominent festivals are yet to be celebrated. Indians, after celebrating Navratri and Dussehra, are now waiting for Dhanteras and Diwali. For those unversed, Dhanteras is the first day of five days long festivities. On this day, Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Kubera is worshipped. It is believed that Goddess Lakshmi came out of the ocean during the churning of the Milky Sea on the day of Dhantrayodashi. Dhanteras Puja is also known as Dhantrayodashi. The day of Dhanteras is also observed as Dhanwantari Triodasi or Dhanvantri Jayanti, the birth anniversary of the God of Ayurveda. Yamadeep is another ritual on the same Trayodashi Tithi when the lamp for the God of death is lit outside the home to ward off any untimely death of any family members.

Dhanteras, every year, is celebrated two days ahead of Diwali. This year, Diwali will be celebrated on Friday, November 10, 2023. Thus, according to Drik Panchang, Dhanteras will fall on November 10 (Friday).
