Dhanteras 2023: Importance
Dhanteras is extremely important to Hindus. This is one of the most significant Hindu festivals, and it is celebrated with tremendous pomp and zeal throughout the country. People take this occasion very seriously and decorate their homes with lights, flowers, rangoli, and diyas. This event is popular for people buying new stuff since it is considered auspicious. The crown may be spotted in the marketplaces throughout the holiday season. They purchase new clothes, home stuff, and gold and silver.
People celebrate the event sincerely and do puja to Lord Ganesha, Goddess Laxmi, Lord Kuber, and Lord Dhanvantri. It is said that at the period of Samudra Manthan, or ocean churning, Goddess Laxmi, the goddess of riches and prosperity, and Lord Dhanvantir, the lord of Ayurveda or god of medicine, came from the milky ocean.
This is the single day when people worship Yama Dev, the Lord of Death, and perform puja to seek his blessings for the long life and well-being of all family members. There is a well-known ceremony for worshiping Lord Yama that involves burning a four-sided clay lamp or diya outside the home and sprinkling gangajal around it to request Lord Yama’s blessings.
According to astrology, this clay lamp should be oriented south-west. It is the direction of Lord Yama Dev, and then pray for the members’ health and well-being. It is thought that lighting this diya will provide relief from early death and the fear of death.
