Why to buy gold on Dhanteras?

Dhanteras marks the beginning of the five day festival of Diwali. The word ‘Dhanteras’ or ‘Dhantrayodashi’ means wealth and prosperity. It is a day to celebrate wealth on the 13th day of Kartik month, where Goddess Lakshmi, Lord Dhanwantri, Lord Yam Dev and Lord Kuber are worshipped.

Since the day is all about wealth and prosperity, it is considered auspicious for buying gold, silver and utensils. This day also holds immense significance for businessmen who leave no chance to invest in gold on this auspicious day.
