What is Akshaya Tritiya?
Considered as one of the three and a half muhurats in the Hindu calendar, Akshaya Tritiya is an auspicious day which is celebrated by Hindu and Jain community. Apart from Diwali, Dussehra and Dhanteras, it is this day which is considered to start a new business or venture. Also known by the name of Akhya Teej, this day falls on the third tithi of Shukla Paksha or bright half in the month of Vaishakh. Akshaya Tritiya 2018 will be celebrated on the 18th of April.
What is the significance of Akshaya Tritiya?
The importance of Akshaya Tritiya is hidden in many mythological backings which have been passed on over the years. It is believed that Lord Parshuram, the sixth reincarnation of Lord Vishnu, was born on this day and so was Goddess Annapurna. Another interesting story is that river Ganga was believed to reach earth on this day. Similarly, it was this day on which ‘Akshaya Patra’, the plate which made infinite morsels of food, was gifted to Draupadi by Lord Krishna in order to provide food for the Pandavas.
Why is it an auspicious day to buy gold?
We buy gold around the year. However, what is it that makes Akshaya Tritiya the most auspicious day of the year? Well, the sun, around which all the planets revolve, shines the brightest on this day. The direct comparison of sun rays and gold makes the day an apt time to get your hands on gold.
Moreover, the word Akshaya means ‘never diminishing’ in Sanskrit, which denotes the everlasting wealth and prosperity one will acquire. Any initiative started on this day is bound to last long and give fruitful results.
