Significance of Dhanteras 2019

Dhan means wealth in Hindi and the festival falls on the thirteenth lunar day, or Tryodashi, of Krishna Paksha (dark fortnight) in the Vikram Samvat Hindu calendar month of Karthik, and hence, it is also known as Dhantrayodashi.

As per the legends, it is believed that Goddess Lakshmi came out of the ocean this day and there is a practice of worshipping Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Kubera, the god of wealth on the auspicious day of Trayodashi.

It is believed that purchasing some form of precious metals like gold, silver or copper brings good luck to the family this day. Goddess Lakshmi is again worshipped after two days on Diwali. This time, with Lord Ganesh.
