Beliefs and Rituals of Akshaya Tritiya 

Akshaya Tritiya, also known as Abujha Muhurta and Akha Teej, is a revered Hindu festival celebrated annually on the Tritiya Tithi of the Shukla Paksha in the month of Vaishakh. This auspicious day is dedicated to the worship of Lord Vishnu and Goddess Lakshmi, the embodiment of wealth and prosperity. 
To honour Goddess Lakshmi and invite abundance into your life, several rituals are observed: 


1. Invocation of the Divine: Recite the 108 names of Goddess Lakshmi with devotion, offering lotus flowers or 108 roses. Simultaneously, perform the traditional worship of Goddess Lakshmi to invoke her blessings for happiness and prosperity. 

2. Financial Blessings: To alleviate financial difficulties, offer saffron and turmeric to Goddess Lakshmi on Akshaya Tritiya. This act symbolizes the removal of financial obstacles and the influx of prosperity. 

3. Welcoming Good Fortune: Hang a garland of mango or Ashoka leaves on the main gate of your home to attract good luck and positive energy. This simple yet powerful gesture is believed to infuse your household with auspicious vibrations. 

4. Golden Investments: Purchase gold ornaments or coins on Akshaya Tritiya and place them in the north direction of your home. The following day, securely store them in your safe to preserve the blessings of Goddess Lakshmi and ensure continued progress and prosperity. 


In addition to these rituals, Akshaya Tritiya holds significance for auspicious activities such as weddings. It is believed that any undertaking initiated on this day, especially during the Abuja Muhurta, will yield favourable outcomes. Couples facing challenges in fixing a wedding date can opt for Akshaya Tritiya, as marriages solemnized on this day are said to receive the eternal blessings of Goddess Lakshmi, ensuring enduring happiness in married life. 

The festival of Akshaya Tritiya serves as a reminder of the eternal prosperity and blessings that flow abundantly when one worships with devotion and follows sacred traditions. May this auspicious day bring boundless joy, wealth, and fulfilment to all who celebrate it with reverence and faith.
