Diwali begins with the hand of Dhanteras. According to the Hindu calendar, Dhanteras festival falls on November 10 this year. This special festival is celebrated every year on the Troyodashi tithi of the Krishna Paksha month of Kartika. It is said that on this day, special worship is done to Kubera, the god of wealth and Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth. Not only that, Lord Dhanvantari is also worshiped on this day. According to mythology, Lord Dhanvantari emerged from the churning of the ocean on the Troyodashi tithi of Krishna Paksha in the month of Kartika with a pot of nectar. He is considered to be an incarnation of Lord Vishnu. Before Diwali, the day of Dhanteras is also celebrated as Dhanvantari advent festival. Buying gold and silver jewelry or things on this day also has special significance. Agriculture is also associated with this day. Because on this day buying coriander seeds and planting them in the home garden is believed to bring the blessings of Lakshmi.
