#Blessings of Goddess Lakshmi#

Akshaya Tritiya, also known as Akha Teej, is an annual spring festival celebrated by Hindus and Jains in India. The festival fell this year on the third day of Vaisakha, i.e., the 22nd of April.

 The word “Akshaya” means “eternal” or “imperishable,” and “Tritiya” means “third day,” so Akshaya Tritiya is believed to be a day when good fortune and prosperity never diminish.

The significance of Akshaya Tritiya varies according to different traditions and beliefs.

On this auspicious day, we expect from the Goddess Lakshmi:

Fame, knowledge, courage and strength, victory, good children, valour, gold, gems and other valuables, grains, happiness, intelligence, beauty, higher aim, higher thinking, morality, good health, and long life.

  • This day is considered highly propitious for starting new ventures, buying gold, investing in properties, and seeking blessings for a prosperous future.
  • It is believed that on Akshaya Tritiya, Lord Kubera, the god of wealth, and Goddess Lakshmi, the goddess of prosperity, shower their blessings abundantly on those who perform virtuous deeds.
  • It is believed that any act of charity or donation performed on this day is magnified manifold, and the merit obtained is eternal. People donate food, clothes, money, and other essentials to the needy and perform various religious rituals to seek blessings for a bountiful life.
  • One of the most common rituals performed on Akshaya Tritiya is taking a bath in holy rivers like the Ganges or the Yamuna, or in sacred ponds, to cleanse the mind, body, and soul. Devotees also visit temples and offer prayers to seek the blessings of the deities for prosperity and well-being.
  • We also observe fasts as a mark of devotion and seek divine blessings for our family’s welfare.

Gold, considered a symbol of wealth and prosperity, holds a special significance on Akshaya Tritiya. It is believed that buying gold on this auspicious day will bring good fortune and prosperity throughout the year. Gold shops are adorned with attractive jewelry and offer special discounts and schemes to attract customers. People also buy gold coins or utensils and perform pujas (ritualistic worship) to invoke the blessings of the deities.

Apart from gold, people also invest in properties or start new ventures on Akshaya Tritiya, as it is believed to be a favorable time for such activities. Many people enter into business partnerships, sign important contracts, or initiate new projects on this day, hoping for a prosperous outcome.

The festival also marked by feasting

Akshaya Tritiya is also a time for indulging in delectable food and sweets. Families come together to prepare special dishes and share them with neighbors, friends, and relatives. The festival is marked by feasting, with people relishing traditional delicacies like puri, chhole, kheer, and other festive treats. It is a time for bonding and celebrating the joys of life with loved ones.

A day for spiritual growth and self-improvement

In addition to material prosperity, Akshaya Tritiya is also considered to be a day for spiritual growth and self-improvement.

Many people observe fasts and perform pujas to seek the blessings of the deities for spiritual enlightenment and inner peace.

In addition to its significance in Hindu culture, Akshaya Tritiya is also celebrated with great fervor in Jain communities. Jains commemorate this day as the birth anniversary of Lord Rishabhdev, the first Tirthankara of Jainism.

Jain temples are beautifully decorated with flowers and colorful flags, and devotees offer prayers, perform rituals, and engage in acts of charity and kindness.

The spirit of Akshaya Tritiya goes beyond religious and cultural boundaries. It is a time for spreading love, compassion, and happiness to all, regardless of caste, creed, or religion.

It is a reminder to practice generosity, kindness, and selflessness towards those in need, and to embrace the virtues of gratitude, humility, and contentment..
