Akshay Tritiya

Akshaya means complete, never ending and eternal or that which never deteriorates. Akshaya Tritiya is celebrated on the third day of the bright fortnight in the month of Vaishakha (vaisakha-sukla-paksa-tritiya). This day is considered to be most auspicious for starting a new venture. This day also yields unlimited spiritual credit for charitable activities that not only benefit oneself and one’s family but also one’s forefathers. It is the day on which great sage Srila Vyasadeva started to compose Mahabarata, which contains Srimad Bhagavad Gita. Offering oblations to forefathers, giving Bhagavad Gita in Charity, Annadana, Godhana, feeding the cows are recommended acts on Akshaya Tritiya.

On Akshaya Tritiya, the Lords were then covered from head to toe in cooling sandalwood paste, beautifully applied by the expert pujaris. Accepting the loving service of all the sincere devotees, Sri Sri Gaur Nitai, Sri Sri Krishna Balaram and Sri Sri Radha Shyamsundar gave their most nectarean Chandan darshan to soothe the eyes of Their devotees burning in the distress of the material world. It also turned out to be a very soothing rainy day.
