According to mythology, King Hima’s daughter-in-law protected her son from Yamraj, the God of Death. He sneaked into the room in the shape of a snake. King Hima’s daughter-in-law placed several gold jewellery, silver coins and diyas at the door. This was an attempt to block the entry of the snake. The jewellery and the diyas shone brightly and made the snake go blind. This nullified the prediction on the king’s son who was predicted to die on the fourth day of his marriage. Thus, people find buying utensils or jewellery auspicious to buy on Dhanteras. It is a symbol to ward off evil and provide protection.
