Dhanteras is Diwali’s first five-day day. Two Hindi terms ‘Dhan’ & ‘teras’ are derived. Dhan signifies richness, while Teras equals 13. On the thirteenth day of the month of Kartik Dhanteras are observed. Dhanteras is also known to be “Trayodashi Dhanvantari” or “Dhantrayodashi.” Dhanteras is very enthusiastically celebrated in India. Lord Kuber and Goddess Lakshmi are also adorated on this day.

Dhantera legends legends
Per the fourth day of his marriage on the astrological prophecies, once a sixteen year-old son of King Hima was destined to die by snake biting. His young bride did not allow him to sleep on that specific fourth day of his marriage. In a large heap at the door to her husband’s chamber and lit several lightning lights, she lay all the jewellery and plenty of gold and silver money. She told her husband stories all night long and sang songs.
When Yama, the deity of death, came to him in the form of a Snake, the brightening lights dazzled his sight and couldn’t come inside the hall of the Kings. Then he climbed over the mound and sat there listening to the lovely melodies throughout the night. He softly departed in the morning. Through the clutches of death, the young woman saved her spouse. Since then the Dhanteras, that is to say the 14th day of Kartik’s month, arrived to the day of Yama deepdaan. The entire night of Chaturdashi glorified Yama, the God of Death, is blazing with an earthen light. On Dhanteras Day, too, the Yama Deep is lit up.
Another tale says that the goddess and the demons emerged from the sea bearing the jug of Amrit this day after the Samudra Manthan was done by Goddess Dhanvantari. This is why Dhanteras is also known as the Jayanti Dhanvantari. On this day, 13 times the capacity of the acquired pot / utensil God offers His gifts of good health & riches.
