Dhanteras, celebrated on the 13th day of the Kartik month of the Dark Moon Week (Krishna Paksha), adorns the lives of the masses with prosperity. Known by his two names, Dhantrayodashi and Dhanvantri Jayanti, the festival celebrates the discovery of 'Amrit His Kalash' by the father of Ayurveda, Lord Dhanvantri, by churning the sea. When the Lord emerged from the sea, he had a pot full of "elixirs." Therefore, it is recommended to purchase pots and pans (tools) on Dhantra Yodashi Day. The festival takes place before Diwali and heralds the happy days ahead.
