story about dhanteras

An old story is well known about that specific day there was ruler His horoscope anticipated his passing by snake-nibble on the fourth day of his marriage. On that specific day, his recently marry spouse did not permit him to rest. She laid out every one of her adornments and loads of gold and silver coins in a store at the passage of the dozing chamber and lit lights everywhere. At that point she described stories and sang tunes to keep her significant other from nodding off. The following day, when Yama, the divine force of Death, touched base at the ruler’s doorstep in the appearance of a Serpent. His eyes were amazed and blinded by the splendor of the lights and the gems. Yama couldn’t enter the Prince’s chamber, so he got on top of the pile of gold coins and sat there the whole night listening to the stories and tunes. In the morning, he quietly left. In this manner, the youthful ruler was spared from the grasp of death by the cunning of his new lady of the hour, and the day came to be commended as Dhanteras. The next day came to be called Naraka Chaturdashi (‘Naraka’ implies hellfire and Chaturdashi implies fourteenth).
