Dhanteras Puja...

Dhanteras is November 4.  It emphasizes Lakshmi giving abundance.  One of the types of abundance is good health.

Lakshmi is the goddess of wealth, prosperity (both material and spiritual), fortune, and the embodiment of beauty. She is the consort of Vishnu. Also called Maha Lakshmi, she is said to bring good luck and is believed to protect her devotees from all kinds of misery and money-related sorrows.

Dhanvantari, the Celestial Healer, was created by Lakshmi.  She comes holding a kalesha filled with amrita, the substance of life.

Om Sri Dhanvantrae Namaha
