Celebrated two days before Diwali, Dhanteras marks the arrival of Goddess of wealth ie. Goddess Lakshmi. She is, therefore, worshipped for bringing wealth, health, prosperity and well-being into our homes.


Why is Dhanteras celebrated?



Multiple stories have led to the observation of this festival. It's said that on this day, Goddess Lakshmi emerged from the ocean of milk with a pot of gold while the sea was being churned. She came out along with lord Kuber. Hence, both these deities are worshipped on the festival of Dhanteras. And the second story marks the birth of Goddess Dhanvantari, who is known as the physician of all the gods and an incarnation of Lord Vishnu. She appeared out of an ocean with Ayurveda for the well-being of all mankind.
