What Akshaya Tritiya is Really Associated With

A day which falls on the Shukla Paksha of the Chithirai Month and has a lot of significance with auspiciousness.

Some notable happenings that started on this auspicious day centuries or Yugas ago.

1. Parasurama, the sixth Avatar of Lord Vishnu incarnated today.

2. Goddess Annapoorni descended on Earth this day.

3. Lord Kubera was blessed with unperishing wealth and designated to be the God of Wealth today.

4. Pandavas received the Akshaya Pathiram from Surya Bhagavan aka Sun God on this day.

5. Treta Yuga commenced this day.

6. River Ganges made her entry into the plains(Earth) this day.

7. Ved Vyas started composing Mahabharata today.

8. Kusela visited Lord Krishna with a handful of puffed rice today. Impressed with his friend's love and affection Lord Krishna turned him from Pauper to King by giving him unlimited wealth.

9. An auspicious day when Adi Shankara composed and recited 'Kanakadhara Stotram'(A sloka) to alleviate a poor but generous woman who had nothing but 1 gooseberry to offer as Bhiksha(Alms) to Adi Shankara.

Seeing the noble lady's generosity and moved by her plight the great and revered Saivite Guru chanted the sloka and Lo!!!

A 1000 gold gooseberries fell from heaven into the poor woman's hands.

No where in Shastras it had been written that Akshaya Tritiya has to be about buying Gold and Silver ?

The Jewellery Kingpins thru marketing gimmicks have tried to fool and have succeeded in making the common man to rush to gold stores to buy gold cpins and jewellery but thats all a farce.

Today is a perfect day to indulge in charity.

Today is a perfect day to worship the goddess with white jasmine flowers.

Today is a perfect day to distribute butter milk, curd rice, salt etc (anything white)

Happy Akshaya Thrithiya.
