Why is it called Dhanteras ?
Dhanteras marks the beginning of five day festivities of Diwali.
After the Samudra Manthan between the gods and demons, Dhanvantari came out of the sea holding the pot of nectar. This is the reason Dhanteras is also called Dhanvantari Jayanti. In the word Dhanteras, “Dhan” stands for “Wealth” and “Teras” for “Thirteenth”.
On this auspicious day of Dhanteras, Goddess Lakshmi is worshiped to receive blessings from her. She is prayed so that she showers the devotees with prosperity and well being. Clay idols of Lord Ganesha and Goddess Lakshmi are bought from the market, decorated and are prayed on the day of Diwali. It is even kept in mind that the trunk of Lord Ganesha is turned towards the right just because it is considered more auspicious.
