Actor-turned-politician Hema Malini explained the significance of Dhanteras.

Dhanteras is observed on the 13th lunar day of Krishna Paksha (dark fortnight) in the Vikram Sambat Hindu calendar month of Aaswayuja in the Amaavasyanta Luni-Solar Calendar.

Literally, Dhanteras means `dhan` or wealth, while `teras` is the 13th day of the moon cycle wherein people offer prayers to Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and prosperity.
