Akshay Tritiya, also known as Akha Teej, (this year on 18th April), marks as one of the most propitious days in India.
It is a day of indubitable significance because of the various mythological stories associated to this day:
- It was the day, when the sixth reincarnation of Lord Vishnu was born.
- Lord Ganesha and Ved Vyas embarked the writing of the epic Mahabharata.
- The holy river Ganga descended from the Heaven to Earth on this day.
- Annapurna, the Goddess of food, a special form of Parvati who feeds the hungry was also born on this day. Once, Shiva disguised himself as a beggar and approached Annapurna for food. On the Akshaya Tritiya day, she fed Lord Shiva himself.
- AkshayaPatram: When the five Pandavasand their wife were in exile, a saint said, ‘I am going to have food with you.’ When the message came, they had no food. They had already eaten and had kept their pots away. Draupadi (the wife of the 5 Pandavas) prayed to Lord Krishna. At the same time, Lord Krishna came to their house and said, ‘Oh I am very hungry.’ He saw that there was only one grain of rice stuck to the pot. He picked that one grain of rice and ate it, and turned the pot into an AkshayaPatra. AkshayaPatrameans that which never diminishes.When the saint came with 400 people, Draupadi could feed all of them from the same pot. The more she took from the pot, the more would come from it. It would never go down!
