Let’s have a look below this article for knowing it better.. 

What is the meaning of Dhanteras? 

The Dhanteras is the combination of two words that are Dhan and teras. 

The word Dhan means wealth.

The word Theras means 13th and is related to the 13th lunar day of the Krishna Paksha in the Hindu calendar.

As per mythological tale, on the day of Dhantrayodashi, Goddess Lakshmi came out from the ocean of milk during the whisking of the Sea, also known as “Samundra Manthan”. The god of wealth Kuber is worshipped on this day.

The day, also celebrated as Dhanvantari Trayodashi, is when Dhanvantari (the lord of medicine) emerged from ‘Samundra Manthan’ carrying a jar of the solution on the day of Dhanteras.

Why is Dhanteras celebrated? What are some stories behind this festival?

On this day, a lamp for God of death is lit outside the home so that any untimely death of family members can be avoided.

There’s an interesting story behind Dhanteras, for which people worship Lord Yamaraja on this day. 

As per one of the popular stories, it is believed that the horoscope of a king’s son predicted that he will die on the 4th day of marriage after getting bitten by a snake.

 On the 4th day of his marriage, his wife decided to turn the destiny around. She made sure her husband didn’t sleep, as she told stories to keep him awake.

To pull the snake away, she laid out all the ornaments and coins at the entrance in a pile.

 It is believed when the God of Death came in disguise of a snake, he was blinded by all the shining jewellery and coins. 

This way the serpent couldn’t enter the prince’s chamber and also got recurved to the wife’s stories and songs.

 It is believed that he silently left the place in the morning and paid with the life of the prince.

Another popular story which is very interesting is the one featuring Lord Dhanvantari, who is the physician of the Gods and a personification of Lord Vishnu, who came out of an ocean that is believed to be whisked by the Gods and demons on the day of Dhanteras.
