Kamdev and Kuber Puja on Trayodashi Tithi

People in Kali Yuga are more interested in the activities of Kamdev and Kuber. Kamdev is the god of love and Kuber is the treasurer of wealth. But what we forget is that Kamdev is not the god of blind lust and neither is Kuber the treasurer of ill-gotten wealth. Puja of Kamdev and Kuber on Trayodashi Tithi is considered highly meritorious.

Krishna Paksha Trayodashi Tithi (the thirteenth day of waning phase of moon) in a Hindu calendar is dedicated to Kamdev and Kuber. This is mentioned in the Bhavishyottara Purana.
