The Story Behind Akshaya Tritiya
Considered as an auspicious day, it is also known as the Akha Teej day. Hindu community observes this day as the holy day. In the month of Vaishaka, it comes on a Shukla Paksha Tritiya. Falling on a Rohini nakshatra day, it is a holy day.
The meaning of the word Akshaya is never diminishing. Hence, the belief is that if we do any Japa (mean to utter in low voice, repetition of a mantra or holy words), yajna (a ritual sacrifice that gives meaning to prayer or worship), pitra-tarpan (it is an auspicious hindu water ritual of making water oblations to gods, rishis (sages) and pitris with a prayer to satisfy any pending mental desires on their part and free them) or dan (Alms) –punya (saintly) on this day it will never reduce and will remain with the person for always.
Belief is that Akshaya Tritiya brings good luck and success to people. Many people also purchase gold on this day, as it is considered auspicious and will bring prosperity to the person. You can expect to get more wealth in the future, as common faith is that the gold bought this day will not lessen, but will only continue to multiply.
Lord Vishnu, the preserver or Hindu god of peace and truth, governs Akshaya Tritiya day. Treta Yuga falls on an Akshaya Tritiya day, as per the Hindu mythology as well as does the birthday of Lord Parasurama, the 6th incarnation of God. However, depending on the Tritiya, the Parashurama Jayanti is also observed a day before. If you are to consider the Hindu Electoral Astrology, you do not need any muhurta to do or start any auspicious tasks for the Yugadi, Vijaya Dashmi or the Akshaya Tritiya day. These three lunar days are considered to be free from any malefic effect.
