Diwali Puja materials Delhi

Dhanteras will be celebrated on 28th October, 2016. It falls in the month of Kartika on the 13th day of Kartik Krishna Paksha. It is the first important day of five day celebration of Diwali. The day is dedicated to Lord Yamdev, Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Kuber. It is also customary to buy some new utensil at home to bring prosperity and wellbeing to the family.

Significance of Dhanteras

The day is celebrated as Yama deep daan or Yama Triyadoshi. King Hima was worried about the death of his 16 year old son as he was predicted to die of snake-bite four days after his wedding. His new bride came up with an idea and decorated the complete room. She also lit diyas and kept them outside the room. She put all the jewellery outside the room and embellished it beautifully with gold and silver. She engaged Prince by telling him stories, playing cards with him and singing songs. When the snake came, he was impressed by the decoration and himself got engaged in the entertainment. He left the next morning without biting the prince. So, the day is celebrated as Dhanteras or Yama Triyadoshi.
