What is Dhanatrayodashi?
Dhanatrayodashi, also known as Dhanteras, is a festival celebrated in India. The word marks its origin from the word “Dhan”, which means wealth. The day falls on the 13th lunar day of Krishna Paksha every year, i.e., 1-2 days before Diwali.
The Legend Behind Dhanatrayodashi
Indian festivities have always had cultural and traditional relevance. Dhanatrayodashi too, has been born from a historical legend.
It is believed that a great king once was prophesized to die 4 days after his wedding. On the fourth day, Yamraja descended on Earth in the disguise of a snake; his wife decided to trick the snake with the help of gold ornaments. She kept all her jewellery in front of the snake. Consequently, the snake was so mesmerized by the dazzle of the jewellery that he spared the life of the king.
It is one of the most popular stories associated with Dhanatrayodashi. However, there are many more that find their place in Indian traditions.
Dhanteras festival celebration is marked by the purchase of gold and utensils on an auspicious day. Gold ornaments and gold coins experience huge sales as they are a symbol of abundance, prosperity and luck in Indian tradition and culture. Some traditions also perceive Goddess Lakshmi as the Goddess of wealth.
