Puja vidhi

Lord Dhanvantari is considered the physician of the gods. Therefore, this day has special significance for doctors. This day is also celebrated as 'National Ayurveda Day'. Dhanteras is also called 'Dhanya Teras' or 'Dhyana Teras' in Jainism because on this day Lord Mahavir had gone into meditation and three days later, on the day of Diwali, Nirvana was attained by him.

For good health, well being and good life, on the day of Dhanteras, you should worship Lord Dhanvantari, who is considered to be an incarnation of Lord Vishnu. While worshiping you would need wooden post, incense, earthen lamp, cotton, scent , camphor, ghee, fruits, flowers, nuts, sweets and prasad.

As per traditions, seven grains are also kept in the place of worship. The seven cereals include wheat, urad, moong, gram, barley, rice and lentils.

Clean the north-east corner of the house, ie, the corner of the north-east direction and put a wooden post there. Spread a red cloth on that post and install the idol or picture of Lord Dhanvantari on it, as well as the picture or idol of Lord Ganesha. Place a kalash filled with water in the north direction of the wooden post and place a bowl full of rice on top of that kalash.

Now tie kalawa on the kalash and make a swastika sign with roli. In this way, after the installation of the idol and the Kalash, the Lord should be invoked. Then first of all, Ganesh ji and then Lord Dhanvantari should be duly worshipped. First apply roli-rice to Ganesh ji and Dhanvantari ji. Offer them scent, flowers, as well as fruits and sweets. After that offer bhog to God.
