    What is Akshaya Tritiya?
    (also spelled akshya trithiya, akshay trutiya)


    What is akshaya tritiya?-goddess_lakshmi.jpg
    Akshaya Tritiya is considered as an auspicious day by the hindus all over the world. The word Akshaya means imperishable that which has no end and is present in abundance. Tritiya means third day since it falls on the third day of Amavaasai of Vaisakh month. It is an important day on which new ventures can be started. It is also believed that whatever we begin on that day will flourish with prosperity. The day is a very good and auspicious day which cancels all other negative factors of planets. So it is not needed to check the panchangam. People in Tamilnadu celebrate this day with great enjoyment.

    How to celebrate Akshaya Tritiya


    Akshaya Tritiya is now not only celebrated by the hindus but also believed by other religion people. The people take a head bath and clean the house neat and clean and do poojas to Lord Vishnu and Goddess Lakshmi. Vishnu Sahasranama Stotra, 1008 names of Vishnu is recited on this day. Some people perform Lakshmi kubera homa, a homa done to kuberan (God of wealth) on this day. There is a belief that "if we fill our house with the fragrance of agarbathis and sambranis our life will also be filled with joy and prosperity". White color which symbolizes purity has got a great significance on this day. So people celebrate the day by wearing white costumes, jasmine flowers and do pal payasam.

    According to the hindu scripture one should celebrate the day by doing the following things to bring prosperity and happiness:

    • Donate your money to any orphanage
    • Do Annadanam, i.e. donation of food to the poor. Giving food to the hunger is the biggest donation.
    • Donate the old clothes, umbrellas and slippers to any ashram
    • Begin any new project, for example, conducting marriages, construction of the house, joining in any new course, starting film poojas, etc.
    Buy gold and silver ornaments, if you cannot buy in sovereigns atleast buy in grams.
    • Buy your monthly provisions

    Whatever you donate on Akshaya Tritiya will be returned back in double to you.


    Prosper by helping the needy on Akshaya Tritiya

    The real essence for celebrating Akshaya Tritiya on the puranas is to help the poor. It is wrongly understood by the people that this day is only for buying gold. The real meaning of Akshaya Tritiya is to do something good for the poor people. We all eat a variety of food each and every day, this day is meant to just think of the poor who live in poverty. The hindu scripture says that "giving a glass of milk to a poor child is better than performing abhisekams with pots of milk.

    There are lots of advertisements from jewellery shops about the great discounts and special offers on the day. But the people forget to donate on this day.

    Let us bring prosperity on Akshaya Tritiya by helping the ones who are really in need of that. Help a poor and your heart will be filled with happiness which you never feel when buying or wearing gold.

    Shashiv ji,
    Thank you for taking time to share this post on Akshaya Tritiya! I was very helpful to note that the focus should be on seva (service) to others rather than on personal gains.
