Wish every reader and well wisher a very happy Dhanteras ( Start of the Deepavali)... Festival of lights. Dhanteras is considered as the start of the festival of light and as per rituals we go out and buy new ornaments or utensils and pray to Ma Lakshmi for WEALTH.
It is indeed SAD as how we have deviated from the actual aspect to something more materialistic in this Kaliyug.
If we go back to the time when GOD and DEMON churned the GREAT OCEAN to get the GEMS, it was today ( 13th of the krishna paksha) that LORD DHANVANTRI appeared with the elixir (amrit) in his hand. He is said to be the father of medicine, who gave ayurveda to the world. He is also said to be the first surgeon.
On this very day the boon of HEALTH was bestowed to the world like the saying goes.... HEALTH is WEALTH.
Actually as per what i have researched and learned we need to pray to the great GOD and GODDESS to bless us with good health which would eventually bring all kind of prosperity in our life.
