Akshaya Tritiya 2024 | Akha Teej

Akshaya Tritiya Meaning | What is Akshaya Tritiya?

Akshaya Tritiya, also known as Akha Teej, (Fri, 10 May, 2024) is a highly auspicious and sacred day for the Hindu and Jain communities. Since it is considered to be the most auspicious day, all the activities (spiritual or material) undertaken on this day bring desired results. It offers the best time especially for those engaged in spiritual activities like meditation, yoga, japa, reading scriptures and the like.

As per Vedic literatures, any auspicious day must be utilized for cultivating spiritual strengths. This is done through reading of scriptures, special pujas, the family deity worship (Ishta Dev), charities, offering homage to one’s ancestors, associated with devotees, feeding Brahmins, planting and watering trees, feeding the poor, sponsoring education and the like. When these activities are performed on this day, one acquires spiritual strengths to perform their prescribed karmas. And as a result, one gradually attains both, spiritual wealth and material opulence.

 

 

Akshay Tritiya is falls on the third lunar day of Shukla Paksha of Vaishakha Month (April-May). ‘Vaishakha’ in Sanskrit also means a churning stick. It is the month to churn out the essence, the substance, the most auspicious or the purest. All the festivals falling in Vaishakha Month focus on purifying through the auspicious means. Parashurama Jayanti is celebrated in this month because Lord Vishnu incarnated as Parashurama the Warrior to purify this mother earth of the unruly kings that had plagued her with their atrocities. Ganga Saptami is celebrated in this month because she had descended through Shiva to purify the ancestors of King Bhagirath. Chaitra Purnima in this month is dedicated to Lord Yama purifies the sinned. On this day Sun and Moon are at the height of their brightness on this day. Brightness of the Sun is like consciousness in the body and that of the Moon is like that strength of one’s mind (Moon rules your mind). Both, the mind and the body, can quickly be purified on this day. Once purified, the mind and the body are harmonized to produce a blissful state that everyone in the world aspires to have.

 

Akshaya Tritiya Significance and Importance

‘Akshaya’ comprises of 
‘A’ (not) and ‘Kshaya’ 
(erode). It means that 
which does nor decay, 
diminish or erode.

 

The Sanskrit word ‘Akshaya’ comprises of ‘A’ (not) and ‘Kshaya’ (erode). It means that which does nor decay, diminish or erode. Results of an activity on this day do not diminish. Instead, they multiply. According to scriptures, there are two kinds of activities. One pertains to one’s body (physical/material) and the other to one’s soul (spiritual). The former is subject to erosion (impermanent in nature) and the latter is associated with eternal bliss (permanent in nature). Results from activities associated with the body are not permanent where those from activities associated with one’s true nature (soul) are permanent and never diminish. Therefore, the benefits of performing Meditation, Japa, Yajna, Pitra-Tarpan (offerings to one’s ancestors), Dan-Punya (Charities) on this day are permanent because they satisfy one’s inner self (soul).
