Dhanteras is traditionally celebrated on the two days before Diwali (the festival of lights). This day is also auspicious since Lord Dhanvantari was born (or rather emerged) from the Milky Ocean. On these two days, we conduct pujas to Lord Kubera and Maha Lakshmi. Lord Kubera is the "banker" of the gods, while Maha Lakshmi is the one from whom both spiritual and material abundance flows, and enables riches to be given to others. 

For two nights, we honour and celebrate the abundance and wealth these two deities represent: health, joy, happiness, wisdom, money, and more.

Bhakti Marga has its headquarters at Shree Peetha Nilaya, meaning ‘Abode of the Maha Lakshmi’, the Divine Mother. It is located in the beautiful German countryside near Wiesbaden. Residents and guests come together every day to participate in special events, prayers, meditation, singing, seva, and to share their love of the Divine with one another.

Shree Peetha Nilaya - Bhakti Marga

In ancient times, yogis would receive Divine Inspiration through the connection to God in Nature. Shree Peetha Nilaya is such a place.
