The Story behind buying silver on Dhanteras:
According to an adage, the story of Dhanteras revolves around a 16-year old King Hima and his newly-wed wife. A prophecy had indicated the king will die on the fourth day of marriage.
In order to keep her husband awake and safe, his newly wedded wife is believed to have made a heap of her ornaments, including lots of gold and silver coins at the entrance of the sleeping chamber. She is then believed to have sung songs and narrated stories.
The next day, when the God of Death, Yama came to take the king, his eyes were dazzled by the blinding gold and silver. Unable to enter the chamber, Yama climbs the heap of wealth and sat there listening to the songs and stories. Later, Yama is believed to have left silently without taking the king.
Since then, buying silver on this day or even other forms of ‘dhan’ is considered auspicious to keep evil and death away.
