Akshaya Tritiya, also known as Akha Teej

Akshaya Tritiya, also known as Akha Teej. is a Hindu festival celebrated with great zeal and enthusiasm in India. The festival falls on the lunar day of Shukla Paksha in the month of Vaisakha, as per the Hindu calendar. This year, the auspicious festival of Akshaya Tritiya falls on Sunday, Apr 23, 2023. Akshaya Tritiya is largely celebrated among the Hindu and Jain communities. On the auspicious day, devotees tend to purchase gold as a symbol of prosperity and also to invite more wealth into their households. People perform puja, do fast, and prepare 'Akshate' to present to Lord Vishnu for good fortune on this day. 'Akshate' is unbroken rice grains coated with haldi and kumkum. Besides, these devotees also make 'naivedyam', mainly known as 'bhog', and offer it to Lord Vishnu, Lord Ganesha, and the household deities. The food prepared to offer to the deities differs from place to place. The auspicious festival has several mythological references and stories attached to it. Mainly, it is believed that Akshaya Tritiya marks the birth anniversary of Lord Parashurama, the sixth avatar of Lord Vishnu. Religious gurus also claim that Akshaya Tritiya was the day when Sudama offered aval to Lord Krishna, in return, he blessed the former with happiness and wealth. It is also believed that God Krishna offered Akshaya Patra to Draupadi on this day, for Pandavas to never run out of food during their Vanavasa. According to mythology, Akshaya Tritiya is considered to be the day when the holy Ganga descended to earth from heaven.
