The festival of lights Diwali is around the corner and the preparations for one of the most revered festivals have begun.
Diwali preceded and succeeded by a number of other festivals and is often considered as the most significant Hindu festival. The 5-day long festival starts with Dhanteras, Chhoti Diwali, Diwali, Govardhan Puja, and Bhai Dooj.
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.
