Dhanteras is the first day of the five-day festivity of Diwali and this year it is falling on October 27, 2019. Also known as Dhanwantari Triodasi or Dhanvantri Jayanti, Dhanteras falls on the thirteenth lunar day of Krishna Paksha in the month of Ashwin.

The word Dhanteras is the combination of two Sanskrit words, ‘Dhan’ means wealth and ‘Teras’ means the thirteenth day of the cycle of the moon. According to legends, on this day, Goddess Lakshmi came out of ‘samudra manthan’. Hindus devotees worship Lord Kubera, who is also known as the God of wealth. It is believed that buying gold, silver, vessels and other such things on this auspicious day brings good luck.

On the auspicious day of Dhanatrayodashi, it is customary to perform the Dhanteras Kuber Puja. It is also customary to celebrate the beginning of Diwali festival by sending Happy Dhanteras wishes and messages to friends and family.
