Dhanteras marks as the main day of five-days-in length Diwali Festival. Dhanteras happens two days before Diwali. Dhanteras Festival, also called Dhantrayodashi or Dhanwantari Triodasi, falls on the favourable thirteenth lunar day of Krishna Paksha in the Hindu month of Kartik (October/November). In the word Dhanteras, "Dhan" remains for prosperity. On Dhanteras Goddess Laxmi is respected to give blooming and prosperity.
One Popular story, when the gods and devils roiled the sea for Amrit or nectar, Dhanavantri (the physician of the gods and a manifestation of Vishnu) developed conveying a container of the solution (Amrit) upon the arrival of Dhanteras. It was a result of this reason the Dhanteras was praised in his respect.
Another intriguing tale about this day is of the sixteen-year-old King Hima. According to his horoscope; he was destined to die by a snake-bite on the fourth day of his marriage. On that specific fourth day of his marriage, his young wife did not enable him to rest. She arranged every one of the decorations and bunches of gold and silver coins in a major load at the passageway of her better half's bedroom and lit endless lights everywhere. What's more, she continued reciting stories and singing tunes. When Yam, the god of death came over there in the appearance of a serpent his eyes got blinded by that amaze of those splendid lights and he couldn't enter the king’s chamber. So, he got over the mountain of the decorations and coins and sat there entire night listening to the sweet melodies. Toward the beginning of the day, he unremarkably left.
Along these lines; the youthful wife spared her husband from the grasp of death. From that point forward; this day of Dhanteras came to be known as the day of "YAMADEEPDAAN" and lights are continued lighting for the duration of the night in respectful worship to Yam, the god of death.
In the same way, a young girl kid born on Dhanteras day is regarded as the entry of Goddess Lakshmi into the house and is viewed as lucky by specific communities in North India. At the point; when young girls born on Dhanteras get married and leave for her husband's home, she leaves her footprints on a plate secured with 'kumkum' (red powder utilized in Hindu puja), this is to guarantee that Goddess Lakshmi does not go out.
