Dhanteras / Dhanwantri Puja/ Kuber Pujan

Two days prior to Deepawali, on the 13th day of the dark half of Kartik, Dhan Teras or Dhanvantri Triyodashi is observed with great mirth and gaiety. Dhanvantri, the physician of gods, who appeared at the churning of the ocean, is worshipped on this day, especially by the physician-community. He is the father of the Indian medical science and Ayurveda is attributed to him. This year Dhanteras is on 28th October 2016.

He is also called Sudha-pani, because he appeared from the ocean, carrying nectar in his hands. The people get early at dawn, cleanse themselves put on new attires and observes fast. In the evening an earthen-lamp is invariably lit before the door of every house, and the fast is broken. New utensils are bought on this day because it is regarded very auspicious.

STORY BEHIND THE CELEBRATION OF DHANTERAS

An ancient legend ascribes the occasion to on interesting story about the 16-year-old son of King Hima. His horoscope predicted his death by snake-bite on the fourth day of his marriage. On that particular day, his newly-wed wife did not allow him to sleep. She laid out all her ornaments and lots of gold and silver coins in a heap at the entrance of the sleeping chamber and lit lamps all over the place.

Then she narrated stories and sang songs to keep her husband from falling asleep. The next day, when Yama, the god of Death, arrived at the prince’s doorstep in the guise of a Serpent, his eyes were dazzled and blinded by the brilliance of the lamps and the jewellery.

Yama could not enter the Prince's chamber, so he climbed on top of the heap of gold coins and sat there the entire night listening to the stories and songs. In the morning, he silently went away. Thus, the young prince was saved from the clutches of death by the cleverness of his new bride, and the day came to be celebrated as Dhanteras.

The following day came to be called Naraka Chaturdashi ('Naraka' means hell and Chaturdashi means 14th). It is also known as ‘Yamadeepdaan’ as the ladies of the house light earthen lamps or ‘deep’ and these are kept burning throughout the night glorifying Yama, the God of Death. Since this is the night before Diwali, it is also called 'Chhoti Diwali' or Minor Diwali.
