Akshay Tritiya- A day of eternal prosperity

The most auspicious day in the Hindu and Jain calendar, Akshay Tritiya is a common household name and yet is veiled in much mystery as to its origin and importance.

The Occasion

Akshay Tritiya, also known as ‘Akha Teej’ falls on the third lunar day of Shukla Paksha of Baisakh month. ‘Akshay’ in Sanskrit means imperishable and eternal, while Tritiya means “third”. The day is celebrated with a lot of fun and excitement all over the country. People firmly believe that any new task or possession initiated or purchased on this day grows and prospers continuously. As a result, people wish to marry or buy gold, property, vehicles or join a new job or start a new business venture on this day. They believe that on this day Gods shower their bounties on them and bless them to get great success in life.


Several mythological tales and folklores are associated with Akshay Tritiya. It is said that it was on this day, Lord Parshuram, the sixth avatar of Lord Vishnu was born. Some also believe, that on this particular day, Ved Vyas began reciting Mahabharata to Lord Ganesha. According to another legend, it was on this day, river Ganges first descended upon earth from heaven.  Another very popular legend associated with Akshaya Tritiya is that of the Akshay Patra- the miracle earthen pot gifted to Draupadi, which ensured Pandavas had a never-ending supply of food. It is thisAkshay Patra that is one of the primary sources of this day’s importance; signifying eternal prosperity.
