Dhanteras – Festival of prosperity

Dhanteras is the most revered Hindu festival of prosperity.  It is commiserated on 13th dark fortnight of Hindu month of Kartik that falls in the month (Oct-Nov) according to English Calendar.

This festival is referred as the first day of 5-day celebration of Diwali. On this Day people buy new clothes, jewelry, and other household items.  With the time, people preferences also changed that many people even buy electronic products on this as this day is meant auspicious to buy new items. People also clean, decorate their home to decorate their homes and pray Goddess Laxmi to invoke her blessings for prosperity at home.

The reason behind is interesting Hindu mythological story:

Once there was the King Hima. He had sixteen-year-old son who was destined to pass away by the snake-bite on the fourth day of his marriage.

With the God’s grace, he got married to a beautiful and intelligent girl. King Hima told his daughter in law that his son would be died on the fourth day of their marriage. His daughter in law was brilliant, she made up plan. First she did not allow her husband to sleep on 4th day of their marriage. She lit up lamps and arranged some gold adornments as well as a number of silver coins and kept them at huge heap at the doorway of their room.

When the God of death (Yama) turned into a snake and visited their home to take her husband. Due to dazzling lights of the lamps and glitter of Gold ornaments and Silver coins made snake turned YamaYamaYama

Another story was long ago when Gods and Demons decided to stir the ocean to have the elixir. God and Demons churned the ocean and got various treasures, and they divide between then.  After many days of struggle, on the day of Dhanterus Goddess Laxmi appeared and put the garland around the neck of VishnuVishnuVishnu
