Today Dhanteras:3 moments for shopping and 1 moment for worship, 5 day Dipotsav festival from 12th to 16th November

 Today Dhanteras:3 moments for shopping and 1 moment for worship, 5 day Dipotsav festival from 12th to 16th November

  • The five-day Dipotsav festival is starting from today. In some places this festival starts from Rama Ekadashi. Due to the difference in the calendar, this time there is confusion about Dhanteras. A few will celebrate the festival on November 12 and a few on November 13. According to the astrologers of Varanasi, Tirupati and Ujjain, this year the thirteenth date will start from the evening of November 12, which will last till about 3 pm on November 13.

Due to this, since November 13 is the thirteenth date in the period of pollution, Dhanteras festival should be celebrated on this day in the evening by worshiping Lord Dhanvantari and lighting the Yama Deepak. If you want to shop on the thirteenth date, you can do so on November 13th.

This way Dhanteras can be purchased for 2 days. The 14th date will then start on the 13th and will last till about 1.25 pm on the 14th. Then Amas will start, so on the 14th, Kali Chaudhash and Diwali will be celebrated. On the 15th there will be Govardhan Puja and on the 16th there will be Bhai Beej Parva.

This year Dhanteras and Kalichaudash gather on Friday, November 13th. The 13th will be Dhanteras from Udit Tithi in the morning i.e. from sunrise to 6 pm. This will be followed by the date of Kalichaudash, which will last till 2.18 pm on Saturday 14th November.

The date of Diwali starts from 2.18 pm on Saturday, November 14, and will last till 10.37 am on Sunday, November 15. In the meantime, New Year's Chopda Pujan, Lakshmi Pujan can be performed.

Sunday will be the due date as the date is not available. It is considered inauspicious to start a New Year's business on the fall day. Doing muhurat on this day does not keep the business afloat.


A special day with Dhanteras unseen moments: -

According to scholars, Dhanteras evening will be the best time for shopping with Lakshmi and Kubera worship and Yama Deepdan. Shopping can be done all day as there is a tradition of shopping on the day of Dhanteras.

It is auspicious to buy silver coins, Ganesha and Lakshmi idols on this day just to keep the family intact. At the same time, there is a tradition of buying gold and silver items. Apart from this it is customary to buy brass, bronze, steel and copper utensils.

Dhanvantari also appeared on this day, which is why this day is called Dhanteras. In Samudra Manthan Lord Dhanvantari brought nectar in kalash, so on this day metal utensils are bought.

  • A lampstand should be needed for Yamaraj after sunset.
  • A four-sided lamp made of flour should be made for it. It should be kept in the south direction outside the house with fern or sesame oil.
