This year, Dhanteras will be celebrated on Tuesday, November 2, 2021. TrayodashiTithi of Krishna Paksha in the month of Kartik is the day when this festival is celebrated annually. Diwali, a five-day celebration, begins in Dhanteras. Due to the fact that Lord Dhanvantari’s birthday falls on Trayodashi, this celebration is known as Dhanteras. On this day, both Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Dhanvantari are worshiped.
According to religious beliefs, it is an auspicious time to buy gold, silver, jewellery, cars, homes and real estate and be blessed with financial gain and prosperity.

Worship of Lord Dunvantari
Lord Dhanwantari, the inventor of Ayurveda, is worshiped for the health and well-being of the family.
“Om NamoBhagavateMahaSudharshanaVasudevayaDhanvantaraye; AmruthaKalasaHasthaayaSarvaBhayaVinasayaSarvaamayaNivaranayaThriLokyaPathayeThriLokyaNidhaye Sri Maha Vishnu Swarupa Swarupa DhanvantriSwarupa SriSriha CharayA”
We pray to God who is Sudharshana Vasudeva Dhanvantri. He holds the Kalasha filled with the nectar of immortality. Lord Dhanvantri removes all fears and ailments. He is the Desire of the Three Realms and the Keeper of them. Like Lord Vishnu, Dhanvantri is empowered to heal our souls. We bow to the Lord of Ayurveda.
Worship the Lord Cobra
“Om YakshyayaKuberayaVaishravanaayaDhanadhanyadiPadayehDhana-DhanyaSamreeddhing Me DehiDapayaSwaha”
Kubera, lord of the yaksha, grant us wealth and prosperity. In addition, you can also chant the KuberYantra and KuberStotra song. Worship of Goddess Lakshmi
Goddess Lakshmi is worshiped during Dhanteras during PradoshKaal. Spread a new piece of linen with a handful of grain in the middle before the ritual begins. A raised platform should be used to spread the cloth. A kalash half full of holy water of Ganga, betel nut, flower, gold or silver coin, and rice grains must be kept together. Put the mango leaves in the kalash as well.
Draw a lotus flower with haldi over the rice grains and place the idol of Goddess Lakshmi on top, as per the ritual. The idol of Lord Ganesha should also be kept, and businessmen should store their important trade books near the idol of Goddess Laxmi. Worshipers must light a lamp and offer flowers, haldi, and scarlet to Goddess Lakshmi, Lord Ganesha, and Kalash.
“Um Shrem Harem Shrem Kamal Kamalalai is the mother of Shrem Harem Shrem Mahalakshmai Namha”
In addition, you can also chant the Lakshmi Stutra, Lakshmi Chalisa, and Lakshmi Yantra.
It is preferable that you get help from a learned expert to perform Dhanteras Puja at home with proper rituals.
Dhanteras very happy and safe!
