On that particular day, his newly wed wife did not allow him to sleep. She lit the lamps all over the palace. Then she narrated stories and sang songs to keep her husband from falling asleep. When Yama , the god of death , arrived at the prince's doorstep in the guise of a serpent, his eyes were dazzled and blinded  by the brilliance of the lamps and the jewelry. Yama could not enter the prince's chamber , so he climbed on the top of the heap of gold and silver coins and sat their the whole night. In the morning , he silently went away.
