Reasons to Celebrate Akshaya Tritiya 2012
Akshaya Trithiya is one of the four most auspicious days of the Vedic calendar, the other three being Ugadi, Vijayadashami and Balipaadyami. On this day, the sun and the moon are simultaneously at their peak of brightness. Celebrate this day that commemorates several important events in the Hindu scriptures.
"A day that is guaranteed to bring abundant good fortunes"
The story originates from the Mahabharata. When the Pandavas were in exile, Lord Krishna gave Draupadi a bowl called the Akshaya Pathram. The word Akshaya means that which never diminishes and this bowl is said to have given infinite food to the Pandavas. Just by turning it upwards a day, the pot will provide unlimited amounts of food for the satisfaction of the Lords. This is why this day is considered to be a good time to bring home Goddess Lakshmi, in any form, platinum, gold or silver.Valuables that are acquired on this day are said to be replenished endlessly.
