The festival of Dhanteras marks the first day of the 5-day Diwali festival. It falls on the 13th of the Krishna Paksh in the Hindu month of Kartik (October-November). Breaking it down, Dhan means wealth and teras means the day 13.

On this day, Lakshmi-the goddess of wealth, is worshipped so she ushers prosperity and well-being on everyone. People also celebrate their wealth, buy new clothes, jewelry, electronics and other things as this day is considered good for new things.

As every other festival, Dhanteras too comes with an interesting legend. According to the legend, there was a 16 year old son of King Hima. His horoscope predicted that he would die of a snake-bite on the fourth day of his wedding. Years passed by and the prince got married. On that particular day, his newly wed wife did not let him sleep. She laid all her ornaments and tons of gold and silver coins in a heap at the entrance of the sleeping chamber and lit lamps all over. To keep her husband from sleeping, she narrated tales and sang songs. At night when Yama, the god of death arrived at the price’s chamber in the form of a serpent, his eyes were dazzled and blinded by the brilliance of the lamps and jewelry. Yam could not enter the prince’s chamber, so he climbed up the heap of gold coins and sat there listening to tales and songs. In the morning, he left silently.

Thus, the new bride saved her husband from the clutches of death by her cleverness and the day came to be celebrated as Dhanteras. It is also known as ‘Yamdeepdaan’ as women light earthen lamps glorifying YAMA.
Another legend says, in the cosmic battle between the gods and the demons when both churned the ocean for ‘amrit’ or divine nectar, Dhanavantri – the physician of the gods and an incarnation of Vishnu – emerged carrying a pot of the elixir. So, according to this mythological tale, the word Dhanteras comes from the name Dhanavantri, the divine doctor.

To celebrate this joyful day of wealth, prosperity and well being, people light up their houses with colorful lights and earthen lamps . Houses are cleaned, renovated and decorated. To indicate the arrival of Goddess of Wealth, small foot prints are drawn with rice flour and vermilion powder.


On Dhanteras, buying articles of gold and silver are considered auspicious by Hindus. It is believed that new wealth in some or the other form of precious metal is a sign of good luck.


The goddess of wealth- Lakshmi is worshiped with great enthusiasm. Tiny diyas of clay are lighted to drive away evil spirits. Devotional songs are sung in praise of the goddess and sweets offered. In villages, cattle are worshiped, especially cows as they are supposed to be the incarnation of Goddess Lakshmi.
