5 Best Things You Can Buy This Dhanteras
Dhanteras, the festival of wealth and prosperity, falls on October 22 this year. "Teras" denotes the thirteenth day, and "Dhan" represents riches. This is the official start of the five-day Diwali festival, which is also known as Dhanatrayodashi. It is stated that the Goddess Lakshmi emerged from the ocean of milk on this day during Samundra Manthan, also known as the churning of the sea. It is thought to be one of the luckiest and best days to buy expensive goods. On this day, people purchase gold, silver, and brass items because they believe that doing so will bring prosperity, good fortune, and protection from the evil eye. The following is a list of auspicious things that you should purchase on Dhanteras 2022 in order to bring luck and prosperity your way.
1. Coins in Gold/Silver
Investing in gold coins or silver utensils adorned with figurines of deities is thought to be extremely fortunate on this particular day. It is considered that you are directly bringing money into your home when you purchase them. If purchasing gold or silver is out of your price range, you can also use brass or copper! They are regarded as equally pure and fortunate metals.
A broom is thought by many Hindu believers to be the dwelling of the Goddess of Wealth. On Diwali, purchasing a broom is akin to purchasing a home for the Goddess to live in. It is said that using this broom to clean your home can remove any negativity that could be there. Laxmi infuses optimism into your house and dispels all anxieties, particularly those pertaining to money and health.
3. Gomati Chakra
A unique kind of sea snail called Gomti chakra can be found in the Gomati River. Success is thought to come from this shell. Additionally, it shields the owner from bad luck. Many say that the best approach to bring prosperity to your home is to work with the 11 gomti chakras. The sudarshana chakra of Lord Vishnu and the gomti chakra appear to be similar in shape. It is therefore regarded as the pinnacle of good fortune and protection from evil.
4. Clothing, Furnishings, or Property
Furthermore, Dhanteras is the ideal day to purchase new furniture, personal care items, clothing, or even real estate if that's what you were planned to do. On this day, investments are said to yield double returns! Thus, invest without holding back. You can and should invest in metals on the auspicious day of Dhanteras. Contrary to popular perception, knives, scissors, and other items made of steel, iron, or aluminium should be avoided on this day. Furthermore, it is said that purchasing products that are dark, ceramic, glass, plastic, tainted, or otherwise connected to evil will often fend off benefits. You must therefore avoid these kinds of things on this particular day. It is not just improper to consume alcohol or a non-vegetarian meal on this day, but also on all other celebrations.
Because utensils are associated with success, it's a good idea to replenish your stock on Dhanteras. Make the Prasad first using kitchen utensils made of brass, copper, silver, or even clay. It is customary for Hindus to refrain from bringing empty cutlery on this particular day. Take it inside and put milk, rice, or lentils inside.
Thus, on this Dhanteras, abstain from wickedness and return home in a state of prosperity. To fend off evil, you should think about purchasing these items on this day.
