Akshya Tritiya: Grains To Silverware Things To Buy

Akha Teej, often referred to as Akshaya Tritiya, is a well-liked festival that is enthusiastically observed. In Sanskrit, Akshaya denotes "never ending," while Tritiya denotes "third." On the third lunar day of the bright moon of the Vaisakha/Baisakh month, it is an auspicious day in the Hindu calendar. It is the only day of the year when both the sun and the moon are at their brightest together. Any purchase made on this day is therefore thought to bring wealth and luck. It is thought that beginning any kind of good deed on Akshaya Tritiya bears fruit, and that by making a small donation on this auspicious day, one can achieve long life, prosperity, and fortune. 

On Akshaya Tritiya, it is thought that the sun and moon are at their brightest. The Treta Yuga, the second period, begins on Akshaya Tritiya.  It is said that purchasing gold on this day, in whatever form, will ensure financial success for the rest of the year. But if you are unable to purchase gold for Akshaya Tritiya—which is actually very expensive on this day—you can still bring luck. Legumes, rice, wheat flour, and especially ghee can be purchased on this auspicious day if purchasing gold is not possible. These foods will also bring prosperity into your life and home. These are essentials for the kitchen, and in Indian households, success is defined by a thriving, healthy kitchen.   


Since lentils are the ultimate representation of wealth and prosperity, purchasing them is lucky. The little coins that represent money are similar to lentils. When soaked and boiled in water, these coins inflate, which might symbolize rising riches. 


They not just provide health to you, but they also symbolize wealth. If you are healthy, you automatically attract positivity and wealth. “Pratham sukh nirogi kaya” meaning the first happiness is a healthy body. Green also represents wealth.  


On this day, it is best to purchase certain grains like rice and barley since they bring good fortune. In Indian mythology, rice is thought to absorb all bad karma and bring luck into your life. As a result, turmeric is also utilized in several Indian religious rituals. 


Ghee is considered sacred in Hinduism as it not only wards off evil but also helps in warding off illnesses, health issues and negativity. Burning diyas of ghee is said to keep away negative energies and brings in positive energy and good luck. 


In the same way that gold is, silver is also seen as an auspicious metal, and purchasing cutlery, such as tableware, coins, or other silver goods, is said to bring luck and wealth. On this day, many people decide to give their loved one's silver-themed gifts. 


On this day, it is stated that if you give coconuts to Brahmins, you can absolve your ancestors of their previous transgressions.
