Let’s talk about Akshaya Tritiya!


Akshaya Tritiya is Celebrated with prayer, enthusiasm and joy by all Hindus and Jains across the nation, this auspicious day holds profound significance, manifesting the spirit of new beginnings, prosperity, and spirituality.


Akshaya Tritiya comes in the month of Vaisakha and signifies the start of a new cycle. People believe that anything started on this day will be successful and brings wealth. Devotees observe day-long fasts, engage in acts of humanitarianism and participate in rituals to honor Lord Vishnu and seek his blessings. From distributing food and clothing to the underprivileged to performing special pujas and offering prayers, the day is filled with joy, spirituality and happiness. Lentils are also purchased on this auspicious day as it resembles wealth and growth.


According to Hindu scriptures, the auspiciousness of this day is worshipping deity Lord Vishnu, the preserver within the divine trinity and it is further magnified by its association with the commencement of the Treta Yuga and the birth anniversary of Lord Parsurama, the sixth avatar of Lord Vishnu. It is a time for devotees to offer prayers, perform rituals, and seek blessings for a prosperous journey ahead.


For Indians, Akshaya Tritiya is the day to engage in the age-old tradition of purchasing gold, a symbol of enduring wealth and prosperity. This tradition stems from India’s rich cultural heritage, where gold has been revered for millennia, dating back to the eras of the Ashokas, Mauryas, and Guptas.


Akshaya Tritiya is also a time to honor farmers and their hard work. In Indian culture, farming is highly respected. Farmers, like skilled craftsmen, work with nature to grow food, which is considered more valuable than gold. This Akshaya Tritiya, let’s remember to appreciate the hard work of farmers. After all, true wealth lies in the land and the farmers who care for it. Let’s also recognize the spiritual connection to farming. Just as the earth provides for us, farming teaches us to respect nature and the divine.


As we celebrate Akshaya Tritiya, let us embrace the spirit of abundance and gratitude, honoring the timeless traditions and values that enrich our lives. May this auspicious day bring joy, prosperity, and blessings to all, heralding a new dawn of hope and prosperity for the nation.
