Dhanteras Significance.

Dhantrayodashi, which falls one or two days before Diwali, symbolises the start of the festival.

The name Dhanteras is made up of two words: ‘Dhan‘ which means riches, and ‘Teras‘ which means thirteen.

Purchasing kitchenware, jewellery, or other large purchases on this day is thought to bring good luck, success, and money.

There is no set rule for purchasing, and even a simple purchase such as a spoon or a dish can be carried home and worshipped on this day to continue the family’s tradition of bringing pleasure and success.

It is believed that lighting diyas around the house would bring pleasure and good fortune to the household.

On this day, idols for Diwali puja are purchased and worshipped in several civilizations.

The ceremony of lighting candles and diyas around the home is called as Yama Deepam, and it is meant to keep ill luck and Lord Yama (God of Death) away from those who live there.
