Akshaya Tritiya 2018: Everything you need to know about the Auspicious day


Akshaya Tritiya is usually seen on the "Third tithi" of Shukla Paksha of the Vaisakh month. Vaishakh month of 2018 begins on April 21 and ends on May 21, whereas, April 18 holds the Tritiya tithi in Shukla Paksha.

Tritiya comes every month, but the Tritiya of Shukla Paksha, Vaisakh month (April/may) creates this auspicious day.

The day encourages people to donate and indulge in charity with a belief that Akshaya Tritiya will make their good deeds imperishable.

'Akshaya', the word itself means 'which has no barrier, hindrance or ending' while 'Tritiya' refers to the 3rd day after the new moon.

Several historical events that are believed to have occurred on this day were:

  • The descent of the Ganges on Earth
  • Sacred grain of Barley first appeared on Earth on this day
  • Lord Parasuram incarnated on Earth on Akshaya Tritiya
  • Sage Ved Vyas started composing Mahabharata on this day

All these auspicious happenings give this day more recognition and importance among people.

Many prefer to purchase gold on Akshaya Tritiya in order to make it their perpetual nature as the day gives the belief of "eternal stay".
