12 Easy Ways to Invite Money this Dhanteras

Dhanteras is the first day of the five-day Diwali festival and falls on October 25 this year.

According to ancient Hindu mythology, Sagar Manthan was performed on this day in the month of Kartik, on Krishna Tryodashi, by the Gods on one side and the Demons on the other. When the Divine Physician, Dhanvantri, appeared with the pot of nectar, the Gods consumed it, to gain immortality. And so, on this day people worship God Dhanvantri for a healthy and long life. Some people even seek Lord Yamraj’s blessings for a clean death after enjoying a long and healthy life. They keep a fast for the next 3 days for ‘Gau-Triratra’.
