Why are people buying metal on Dhanteras?
The purchase of gold, jewelry, and utensils in Dhanteras also has its roots in folklore that there was once a king named Hima whose son was to die on the fourth day of his marriage. Hima’s daughter-in-law saved her husband by preventing the god of death, Yamaraj, from entering her house by placing a lot of Diyas, a pile of gold jewelry and silver coins at the door.
According to ancient folklore, the strong light from the glittering jewelry and shining Diyas blinded Yamaraj, who appeared as a serpent and therefore could not kill Hima’s son. For this reason, it is believed that buying gold and silver jewelry or new utensils can protect you and your family members from harm. Buying metals on Dhanteras is also believed to bring good luck, wealth, and prosperity to the house.
