Have you ever thought why you buy gold on Dhanteras? Do you know the significance of Dhanteras?

Celebrating every occasion becomes more vibrant if you know the history and significance of the occasion, isn't it? Here is the importance of the Dhanteras festival. Have a look at the pooja timings for this year, 2016, and other details below.

Dhanteras Pooja Timings
This year, Dhanteras falls on 28th October, 2016, and the pooja can be done between 17:40 (5:40 PM) and 20:55 (8:55 PM); however, doing the Dhanetras pooja between 18:40 (6:40 PM) and 20:50 (8:50 PM) is considered to be very auspicious.

Meaning Of ‘Dhanteras':
‘Dhanteras' means wealth. In many households, Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Ganesh are worshipped together for the wealth, well-being and prosperity of the family. Gold and silver are considered to be auspicious and people worship them too.

Significance of Dhanteras

Story Of Yamadeepan:
King Heema's young son was destined to be dead by snake bite on the fourth day of his marriage. To save the husband's life, his wife kept him awake on that day and prepared a large heap of gold and silver coins. She also lit numerous diyas. When Yama, the god of death, appeared, his eyes were bedazzled with the gloryof the diyas and coins and he couldn't see anything.

Thus, Yama had to return. Thus, on Dhanteras, the clever wife saved her husband from death. From that day, diyas and candles are lit up the whole night to show respect to Lord Yama.

Story Of Amrit Manthan:
According to another myth, on the day of Dhanteras, the jar of elixir (amrit) came out from the Ksheer Sagar after the churning (manthan) of it by gods and demons. This signifies that celebrating Dhanteras also brings long life to you.
