A Very Happy and Prosperous Dhanteras...Wishes for a joyous Diwali :)

 Today
is the auspicious day of  'Dhanteras' ...
when all the small earthen 'diyas'  are lit up
and beautiful 'rangolis' are drawn at the entry way...
 to welcome Goddess 'Lakshmi'
The Goddess of wealth.



On 'Dhanteras'
'Lakshmi' puja  is performed with full devotion
to ensure  prosperity, 
and to drive away the shadows of evil spirits.
People buy gold or silver
or any other kinds of metal
as a sign of wealth or good luck :)












'Dhanteras'  or 'Dhan Trayodashi'
 is the very first day 
of the five-days-long 'Diwali' festival,
 ' The Festival of Lights'...




'Dhan' means wealth and 'Tera' is thirteenth.
Dhanteras falls on 
the auspicious thirteenth lunar day of 'Krishna paksha' (dark fortnight)
in the 'Hindu' month of 'Kartik' (October/November).

A Very Happy Dhanteras
glowing with peace, joy and prosperity.



Dhanteras Ki Hardik Subhkamnayee...




Enjoy this  auspicious day 
with gusto and enthusiasm...
Shubh Dhanteras 
and 
A Very Happy Diwali to you all :)









Wishes for a joyous Diwali and a Happy New Year with plenty of Peace and Prosperity !!!
