Happy and holy dhanteras day is this day
For the northern and western India a gateway
For invoking the blessings of Goddess of wealth
First day of five day Diwali festival in mirth!
“Dhan” is wealth, “teras” the thirteenth day of the month
‘Karthik’- the day is observed with all reverence
Lord ‘Kubera’- God of assets and wealth worshipped
For the welfare and prosperity of all – loved!
Divine lamp is lit as the day gives room for night
Darkness is dispelled by the brightness of the light
Poverty is displaced by prosperity right
Forces evil defeated by forces noble!
On this sacred day, let our mind go to the poor
Who cannot afford festivals and festivities sure
Let us find joy of giving what we can to them
And may God bless and let us help those poor gems!
