MAY 3, 2022
Akshaya Tritiya, one of the most important days in the Vedic calendar.
It is regarded as one of the most auspicious days for new beginnings. This festival occurs on the third day (Tritiya) of the bright fortnight (Shukla Paksha) in the month of Vaishakha every year.
The word ‘Akshaya’ in Sanskrit means inexhaustible, that which is unlimited or everlasting. Thus this festival is a celebration of unending happiness, peace and prosperity.
Akshaya Tritiya is the appearance day of Lord Parasurama, and it is also the day that the Ganges descended to the earth.
Also Srila Vyasadeva, the great sage who is the literary incarnation of the Supreme Lord, started composing Mahabharata on the auspicious day of Akshaya Tritiya.
The Pandavas received Akshaya Patra from the Sun God
Most devotees know it as the beginning of Candana-yatra, but actually many of Lord Krishna’s other pastimes also took place on this day, specifically those which highlight Krishna’s generous and intimate reciprocation with his devotees.
The very word Akshaya means “that which never diminishes”. Any service or charity one performs on this day will be paid back many times over. On this day, Sudama gave the Lord a tiny portion of chipped rice and was rewarded with untold opulence. Draupadi was protected by Krishna twice on this day, once when He provided her an unlimited sari at the dice game in return for a tiny piece of cloth, and later, when she needed to provide food for Durvasa muni, the Lord took a single grain from her pot and satisfied the hunger of all the sages.
“If the devotee offers something to the Lord, it acts for his own interest because whatever a devotee offers the Lord comes back in a quantity a million times greater than what was offered. One does not become a loser by giving to the Lord; one becomes a gainer by millions of times.”
Krsna Book Ch. 81, The Brahmana Sudama Blessed by Lord Krishna
