Akshaya Tritiya or ‘Akha Teej’ is celebrated on the third day in the month of Vaishakha (Vaisakha Shukla Paksha Tritiya) every year. In the year 2020, it is falling on Sunday, 26th of April. Akshaya Tritiya's meaning lies in its very name, ‘Akshaya’ means inexhaustible or something that can never be destroyed. It is considered as the most auspicious day for new beginnings and is one of the most auspicious observances for both Hindus and Jains.
Lord Parshurama – who was Lord Vishnu’s sixth incarnation – was born on this day and Shri Veda Vyasa began writing the Mahabharata with Lord Ganesha on this very day. It is also believed that Sat Yug started on this day as well. It is a promising day for all good deeds, especially for marriages, inaugurations, and for a donation of anything. Any venture that is begun on Akshaya Tritiya brings much prosperity.
This day brings prosperity and luck and the deeds done today are 1000 times more eventful and powerful than the rest of the days. Therefore, this day is considered appropriate for marriage, making new beginnings and also for donations. Akshaya Tritiya marriages are said to be long-lasting and fruitful always and therefore there is no need to think twice before setting it as the wedding date.
It is said that the Akshaya Tritiya is the best day to lend any kind of offerings to our forefathers. The benefaction made today by us goes directly to them and treats them. This is a good day to gather blessings and wishes from our forefathers. You can make a 5-course meal and offer them to your forefathers during Akshaya Tritiya Puja.
It is said that feeding food and water to stray animals is the cause of the almighty. Although feeding the animals should be a regular practice, on this day, it brings extraordinary and exceptional luck with happiness. Reach out to such animals, feed a cow or a dog. In return, you will be showered with unconditional love and loyalty by God.
Bhagwat Gita Says “There is no greater donation than the donation of food”. And it is indeed true, and also there is no bigger happiness than the satisfaction you get after making a noble deed. So, what better day to do this than Akshaya Tritiya? Make this day a lot more auspicious by including feeding a hungry stomach in your list of donations. Do this and the blessings you end up with will fill your lives with wealth.
The blessings you will receive from a starved person for satisfying his/her hunger or quenching his/her thirst will be immeasurable. The blessings of the Almighty can be attained by helping those in need. You can start it by donating to Narayan Seva Sansthan that pledges to feed thousands of hungry people daily.
Just like food, clothes are also one of the necessities. Donating food polishes your luck and is many times more significant in removing obstacles for wealth accumulation. Donate clothes to the poor and the underprivileged and spark their lives with a little effort!
You can also help people who are in need – you can fund a child’s education or sponsor books for ensuring quality education for those who cannot afford it.
The couples who donate vermillion are said to have long-lasting and loving marriages. The donation of sindoor on Akha Teej increases trust, love, and bonding among married couples. It is also said that if married women donate vermillion on this auspicious day, it increases the life of their husband.
Sandalwood is considered very pious in Hindu mythology and is therefore used in almost every Hindu temple as an adornment of God. Donation of Sandalwood on Akshaya Tritiya keeps you safe from accidents and brings you good health.
