Diwali will begin with Dhan Teras, the festival of lights. This day is also the birth anniversary of Lord Dhanvantari, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu. This time the sum of three special festivals is being formed on the day of wealth. Sarvartha Siddhi and Amrit Siddha Yoga will also increase its importance. On this day, the coincidence of Dhanteras Pradoshvrat and Hanuman Jayanti is also being made. This coincidence is happening after 27 years.
Astrologer Pandit Rajkumar Shastri told that Dhanteras is considered auspicious for shopping. People buy property, jewellery, utensils, land, vehicles etc. Worship of Goddess Lakshmi during Pradosh period on Trayodashi Tithi is considered beneficial. This year, the auspicious time of worshiping Lakshmi in Pradosh period in Trayodashi Tithi is on 22 October only. Therefore, it would be better to celebrate the festival of Dhanteras or Dhan Trayodashi only on 22 October. Trayodashi Tithi will end as soon as Pradosh Kaal begins on 23rd October.
