Meaning, Date, Time, and Muhurta for Dhanteras/Dhana Trayodashi in 2022


Dhanteras are also called Dhana Trayodashi or Dhanvantari Trayodashi. The word "Dhana" means "wealth," and "Teras" or "Trayodashi" means "13." It simplifies Dhanteras on Krishna Paksha Tithi 13.

Dhanteras Significance


Dhanteras is one of the luckiest days before Diwali, according to the Hindu calendar. The celebration of wealth is celebrated on this day. People spend on gold, silver, and other expensive jewelry to welcome Goddess Lakshmi home. During Samudra Manthan, it is written in the scriptures that this is the day when the god came out of the ocean. Oceans were churned seeking 'Amrita' or nectar, and Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Dhanvantari emerged with a golden jug of Elixir.

Story of Dhanteras


The tale of Dhanteras is based on a story about King Hima, who ruled with justice and love. Astrologers said that his 16-year-old son would die from a snake bite on the 4th day after he got married, which was written in his horoscope. Deeply devastated and disturbed by the revelation, King Hima looked for ways to save his son. On the recommendation of a famous astrologer, he married his son to a lucky horoscope girl. The astrologer told her that on the day of their wedding, she needed to follow certain rules.

On a certain day, the bride piled her jewels, gold and silver coins, and other valuables at her bedroom door. Before Lord Yama came, she decorated the whole room with "Diyas." When the God of Death, in the form of a snake, crawled up to the main door, he couldn't see because of all the shiny decorations and Diyas. The princess' efforts to block the snakes from getting into the room seem to have worked as it was captivated by her charming songs and stories, which saved her husband's life. This happened on a happy day we know as Dhanteras and celebrate.
