5 Reasons Why Purchasing Gold On Akshaya Tritiya Is Auspicious?

On May 02, 2024

India is probably one of the countries in this world where buying gold jewellery is also associated with religion. Though gold is a precious metal, it is also used as part of a few religious aspects. In order to please Goddess Lakshmi, people who can afford gold, buy it in the form of jewellery and flaunt it on festival days. They also buy gold on auspicious occasions and one of the most important days when most people in India rush to buy gold is on Akshaya Tritiya. Here are five reasons why purchasing gold on Akshaya Tritiya is considered to be auspicious.

5 Reasons Why Purchasing Gold On Akshaya Tritiya Is Auspicious?

Gateway to Eternal Wealth

Akshaya Tritiya simply translates into ‘not diminishing’ in Sanskrit. There is a wide belief that whatever began on this day only grows multifold, there are fewer hindrances to its progress. So, if you buy gold on Akshaya Tritiya, it is a start to buy much more gold in the entire year thereby invoking prosperity and wealth into your life.

Planetary Alignment

The Sun and the moon are exalted and so they shine bright on Akshaya Tritiya day and it is one of the rare days in a year. This planetary alignment can bring good fortune to many. Hence, buying gold on Akshaya Tritiya is considered a good fortune for a family or business.

Beginning of Sat-Yuga

It is believed that Akshaya Tritiya was the day Sat-Yuga began at the time of the golden age. Sat-yuga is the first of the four yugas that happened at that time. It is on this day, that Krishna handed Draupadi the Akshaya Patra, a vessel that was a permanent source of food for the Pandavas during their exile. The Akshaya Patra is a vessel that will never go without good. So, there is a wide belief that when we buy gold on Akshaya Patra, we will never lose our prosperity at any time and it will remain with us forever.

Tritiya Day for Jains

Akshaya Tritiya is the Tritiya day in the month of Vaishaka, as per the Jain calendar. It was on this day that Jain Tirthankara Rishabhdev broke his fast by drinking sugarcane juice after travelling without food for a year. Since then, Akshaya Tritiya has been considered an auspicious day for Jains. It is believed that those who perform virtuous deeds on this day and donate will be rewarded with auspicious results.

24 Hour Auspicious Period

Akshaya Tritiya is an auspicious 24 hour period and hence it is the ideal day to buy gold, no matter the time. In general, every particular day will have a good time (shubh muhurat) and a bad time and people check the time before they go to buy gold or start anything new. This is not required when it comes to Akshaya Tritiya as the complete 24 hour period is considered auspicious to buy gold.

These are the main reasons why buying gold on Akshaya Tritiya is considered to be auspicious. If you can plan your purchase properly, you will be able to buy at least a gold coin on that day to invite prosperity into your homes.
