FESTIVAL OF LIGHT & PROSPERITY begins today with DHANTERAS.
Dhanteras is celebrated on 13th Day of Krishna Paksha.
Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Kuber is worshipped on this day.
The festival begins with early morning bath, decorating the house with flowers, lighting of lamps and offering of Dhana, dried coriander seeds with jaggery to the Deities.
On this day, Lord Dhanvantari, the healing God or the God of medicine is also worshipped.
It is believed that the Gods and the Demons performed churning of the ocean, SAMUNDRA MANTHAN. This was to obtain the nectar of immortality, AMRITA.
MANDARA is the name of the mountain used as a churning rod to churn the ocean of milk. Lord Shiva's serpent, VASUKI, offered to serve as the rope pulled on one side by a team of asuras, and on the other, by a team of devas.
Goddess LAKSHMI, the Goddess of Wealth and Fortune , appeared from the ocean of milk.
With continuous churning, Lord VISHNU appeared in incarnation as DHANVANTARI, carrying a jar of AMRITA on this day.
In Ayurveda, Dhanvantari is regarded as Lord and Head of Medical Science.
Lord Dhanvantari has a dark complexion with yellow clothes wearing ornaments and flower Garland. He holds Sudarshan Chakra in right hand, conch (Panchajanya) in left hand and AMRITA in other two hands.
Lord Dhanvantari blesses with health, happiness, wellbeing to prosper.
