‘Akshaya Tritiya’ or ‘Akha Teej’. It is believed that whatever auspicious work is done on this
day, they get a pleasant result.

auspicious task, seeing a calendar to buy a new item. Even auspicious works like marriage,
house-entry can be done on this date without seeing the almanac. On this day, the pinddaan, done in the Pitru Paksha also gives a renewable result. In Akshaya Tritiya, pooja
recitation and havan, etc. also give very pleasant results. If a sincere heart apologizes to
God for unknowingly committed crimes, then God forgives his devotees and empowers them
to walk in the path of truth, religion, and justice. The one who knows the importance of faith
in lord will always be successful in life.
Major mythological stories of Akshaya Tritiya
According to a legend, when the Pandavas were in exile during the period of Mahabharata,
one day Sri Krishna, who is an avatar of Lord Vishnu himself, gifted him a renewable
character. It was a character that would never be empty, and with which the Pandavas never
worried about food and, on-demand, unlimited food was revealed from this vessel.
Another legend related to Shri Krishna is prevalent in the context of Akshaya Tritiya.
According to the legend, Sudama, a friend of Shri Krishna’s childhood, went to Shri Krishna
on this day to ask for financial help for his family as his family was very poor and struggled
for day to day requirements. Sudama had only a handful of poha as an offering. After
meeting Sri Krishna, Sudama was hesitant to give him his gift but Lord Krishna took a
handful of poha from Sudama’s hand and ate it with great fervor. As Sudam was the guest of
Shri Krishna, Sri Krishna grandly received him. Sudama was very happy with such
hospitality, but he did not think it would be appropriate to say anything for financial help and
he left for his house without saying anything. When Sudama arrives at his house, he is
stunned. In place of his dilapidated hut was a grand palace and his poor wife and children
were equipped with new robes. Sudama was not late to understand that this is the blessing
of his friend and Vishnu: Avatar Sri Krishna. This is the reason why Akshaya Tritiya is also
associated with the gain of wealth. If the prayers are done with pure mind than the god
approves them, no hard-working individual will ever suffer if his/her heart is in the right place.
