Happy and Auspicious Akshay Tritiya
The Sanskrit word Akshaya means the one that never diminishes or the eternal one.
There are several beliefs surrounding this day –
it marks the beginning of the Treta Yuga;
it is also the day when the mighty and heavenly river Ganga descended on the earth at the behest of King Bhagiratha to help his ancestors attain Moksha.
This auspicious day is also associated with Shri Krishna. On this day, Shri Krishan’s poor Brahmin friend Sudama visited his palace with a fistful of fattened rice. Shri Krishan whole-heartedly accepted his humble offerings and showered his friend with riches. Therefore, it is the day when Sudama’s fortune changed, and he became a wealthy man.
Also, Ved Vyasa narrated the Mahabharata to Lord Ganesha on this day.
