  • Akshaya Tritya (or as it’s also called - Akha Teej) is a vedic festival, falling on the 20th and 21st of April’2015. Every year it falls on Shukla Tritya (the 3rd lunar day of waxing moon) in the lunar month of Vaisakha. It is one of the most auspicious days of the year, and it is believed that this day is free from all Doshas, every moment of it is favorable and there is no need to select a Muhurta (auspicious time) for any positive activity.

    if translated from Sanskrit the word "Akshaya" means "indestructible", "long-life", "one that never diminishes" and that is why all activity, started this day, brings prosperity. It is believed that effect of all Japas, Pitra-Tarpanas, Yagyas and other rituals done during Akshaya Tritya remain with the person for the rest of his life. This day brings success and good luck. There is a vedic tradition of buying gold in this day, so that a gold bought on Akshaya Tritya could bring more wealth and prosperity in the future (by the way, among all Grahas (planets) Guru (Jupiter), the only true Shubha Graha is responsible for gold, as well as Divine support, happiness and good fortune)). In general, it is considered that all valuable things bought on this day will bring success and good fortune, as well as any charitable activity during this day produces great returns in multiple ways.

    Akshaya Tritya is a moment in space and time, when Surya (the Sun) and Chandra (the Moon) once a year are in the state of Uccha (exaltation). This is the moment when these luminaries (responsible for the state of vital energy in everything on Earth) are in the prime of their power. Thus, any effort at that time will carry the momentum of Surya-Uccha and Chandra-Uccha and will be filled with energy to the maximum. That is why astrologically it’s the ideal time to start any new enterprise and make any efforts for getting aims and fulfilling desires. Entire Universe is opened for it because Surya is a Karaka of getting aims and Chandra is a Karaka of planning. 

    This day usually is also recommended for marriages, for money investments and starting new projects. In addition, Akshaya Tritya is an extremely auspicious day for spiritual practices and working with Kundalini. It is a day when the energy in Surya-Nadi (Pingala) and Chandra-Nadi (Ida) flows in the most balanced way and that’s why it is a very auspicious day for meditation on Ajna Chakra (in which these 2 Nadi are connected to each other forming so-called "third eye").

    All the best!
