Updated Post: Akshaya Thritiya ಅಕ್ಷಯ ತೃತಿಯಾ – May 1st -2nd 2014

In the USA Akshaya Thritiya ಅಕ್ಷಯ  ತೃತಿಯಾ is celebrated on May 1st 2014 and on May 2nd 2014 in India. Please check with your local calendar to find out about the same.

Akshaya Tritiya ಅಕ್ಷಯ  ತೃತಿಯಾ is the most important day in the hindu calendar.  Akshaya means growth and tritiya is the third day of the month in Vaishaka Masa. They say that in order to perform any major function like marriage, gruhapravesha you don’t even have to check your horoscope for finding a good Muhurtham. Any ritual or religious function performed on this day leads to growth.

The Uttaradi matta panchanga also mentions it is very important to apply gandha ಗಂಧ to the Lord. So, if you have access to the same, please do that as well.

On this day, many ladies give thambula including blouse piece, and other items. Any thing you give or donate they say becomes akshaya. Meaning infinite or one that never diminishes.

So, if you have decided to do anything new this year, this is the right day to get started.

    ಮೀರಾ, ಆಕ್ಷಯ ತೃತೀಯಾದ ಅರ್ಥ ನಿಮ್ಮ ಬ್ಲಾಗ್ ಗೆ ಅನ್ವರ್ಥಕವಾಗಿದೆ. ಕಲ್ಪವೃಕ್ಷ ಮತ್ತು ಕಾಮಧೇನು ಎರಡೂ ಕೂಡಾ ಅನಂತ ಹಾಗೂ ಅನನ್ಯತೆಯ ಪ್ರತೀಕಗಳು. ಈ ಶುಭಾವಸರದಲ್ಲಿ ನಿಮಗೆ ನನ್ನ ಹೃತ್ಪೂರ್ವಕ ಅಭಿನಂದನೆಗಳು ಹಾಗೂ ಧನ್ಯವಾದಗಳು.


  3. On the occasion of Akshya Tritya which falls on 12th Monday this year.. We can donate anything like Sugar Rice(Sweet Pongal) Cloth, Money, food any items to the people. Some people will buy gold on this day by considering growth of our prosperity and
    wealth. I don’t know to what to buy. My husband told that all jewelery shops would be more crowd, we can buy it some other day. Some people will make an advance booking with Jewelery shop and buy it on same day.

    Happy Akshaya Tritiya to all of you.
