Dhanteras is an extremely auspicious day of the year for the Hindus in India. It’s name originates from the two words - Dhana (wealth) and Trayodashi (13th). The 13 refers to the date of the celebration of Dhanteras which falls on the 13th day of the Krishna Paksha (waning moon) of the month of Kartik. In Hindu mythology, this day is referred to as the day when the Dev (gods) and the Rakshas (demons) took part in the Samudra Manthan (churning the ocean) to obtain the hidden Amrit (potion of immortality).
The festival of ‘Dhanteras’ is celebrated with great enthusiasm in the Hindu month of Kartik ( October-November). This auspicious festival is observed on the 13th day of the dark fortnight.
