In today’s time, the festival of Dhanteras has been limited to only shopping for gold, silver and utensils. But let us tell you that the day of Dhanteras also has great importance in terms of health. On this day, the birthday of Lord Dhanvantari, who is considered the father of Ayurveda, is also celebrated. By worshiping Lord Dhanvantari one can get blessings of better health and healthy body. English also says – Health is wealth i.e. good health is true wealth.
Lord Dhanvantari has four arms. He has Ayurveda texts in one hand, medicine urn in one hand, herbs in one hand and conch in one hand. They provide healing to the creatures, so instead of just praying for wealth on Dhanteras, worship Lord Dhanvantari for better health. In view of the fast growing diseases these days, if Ayurveda is adopted along with modern medical practice, better health can be achieved.
