According to legend, he was fated to die from a snake bite on the fourth day of his marriage. His wife allegedly refused to let him sleep on the fourth day of their marriage.

She placed all of her gold and silver decorations at the entrance to the chamber and lit little lamps (Diyas) all around the place. She then began singing and telling stories to her spouse.

As a result, when Yama appeared in the shape of a serpent, his eyes were blinded by the sparkling jewels. As a result, he was unable to access the prince chambers.

He ascended the mountain of ornaments and sat peacefully for the entire night, listening to the music and stories. He left gently in the morning.

As a result, the woman saved her husband from the jaws of death. Yamadeepdaan has been known since the day of Dhanteras. Since then, lamps have been lit on this day, which is dedicated to Yama, the God of Death.

Diwali is one of the most auspicious festivals celebrated by the people of India with zeal, happiness, enthusiasm, and emotion.
