Why Your wealth Multiplies thirteen times on Dhanteras?

Today is Kartik Krishna Trayodashi Tithi. According to the scriptures, Lord Dhanvantari was born on this day. Hence it is celebrated as the festival of Dhanteras. Dhanvantari appeared with the nectar urn, so there is a tradition of buying utensils on this day.

But there are also many untold stories related to Dhanteras that show why Dhanteras is celebrated before Deepawali and what is the importance of Dhanteras in our life.

 Let us now tell you many more reasons to celebrate Dhanteras…

 When Your wealth Multiplied thirteen times on Dhanteras

Another mythological connection related to Dhanteras is that on this day of Kartik Krishna Trayodashi, Lord Vishnu cut off one eye of Shukracharya, the guru of the Asuras because he’s obstructing the work of the deities.

According to the legend, Lord Vishnu incarnated as Vamana to free the gods from the fear of King Bali and reached the place of sacrifice of King Bali.

Shukracharya also recognized Lord Vishnu in the form of Vamana and urged King Bali to refuse anything Vamana asked for. Vamana is the real Lord Vishnu. They have come to snatch everything from you to help the gods.

Bali did not listen to Shukracharya. Vamana took a pledge to donate three steps of land as asked by the Lord, by taking water from the kamandal. To stop Bali from donating, Shukracharya entered King Bali’s kamandal wearing a miniature form.

Due to this, the flow of water exit from Kamandal was closed. Vamana understood the trick of Lord Shukracharya. Lord Vamana kept the Kusha in his hand in such a way that one eye of Shukracharya burst. Shukracharya came out of the kamandal in a hurry. Bali took a pledge and donated three steps of land.

Lord Vamana then measured the earth’s surface with one foot and space using the other. Bali, unable to take the final move, prostrated himself at Lord Vamana’s feet. He gave up everything in order to make a compromise. The gods were thus liberated from the fear of selflessness, and the fortune that Bali had snagged from the divinities was multiplied many times over. On this day,  the Dhanteras celebration is also discovered.
