There are auspicious days for giving when the blessings are greatly multiplied, and you can receive tangible benefits. The slokas of the sacred text ‘Madanratna’ explains the importance of donating charitable gifts and sponsoring holy fire offerings on the third moon in the bright fortnight of the lunar month Vaishakh, otherwise known as Akshaya Tritiya. The text highlights that any charitable activity performed on this day never goes waste and the reward is multiplied in this lifetime and the next.
In the Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna narrates the story of the merchant Mahodhayan to Arjuna (one of the Pandava brothers in Mahabharata). Because the merchant understood the importance of sponsoring rituals and giving charitable gifts on Akshaya Tritiya, he donated a large sum after praying to archetype Madhusudhan (form of Lord Krishna in the first of four epochs, Krita Yuga). As a result, his business greatly flourished and in the next life, he was blessed to be born as a King named Kusavathy, whose treasury was always full of wealth.
