On May 03, 2024

Akshaya Tritiya is one of the most auspicious days of the year for most people in the Hindu community. Goddess Mahalakshmi opens the doors of wealth and showers abundance and prosperity to those who pray to her on this day. The occasion happens yearly on the Viakshaka star, mostly in late April or early May. There is so much to do as a part of welcoming and seeking the blessings of Maa Lakshmi.

Goddess Lakshmi is Vishnu’s wife. Vishnu is part of the holy trinity of Hindu Gods whose main role is that of being a protector. “Shri” is another name for Goddess Lakshmi. It is believed that Lakshmi is the beholder of all the wealth and prosperity. Hence those who pray will benefit from those who don’t. Lakshmi sits on a lotus flower, holds a conch and a cow and has money or gold coins all around her. It is believed that she is also present in Gold, jewellery and money. It is no surprise that people throng the jewellers during Akshaya Tritiya to buy various pieces of jewellery. On this auspicious occasion, you do not have to buy only gold, you can also invest in a good piece of silver jewellery.

Clean Up

A clean home is the sign for a clean mind. Noone can live in a house that is littered with stuff. Cleanliness is the first sign to invite Goddess Lakshmi. Wouldn’t you want to keep your space neat so that good thoughts can enter your mind to create positive vibrations around you to invoke the divine? A mess-free and swept house is very important regardless of what you do there. So clean up your home and get those floors shining.

Prayer

Prayer is a big part of seeking blessings. Even if you cannot perform an elaborate pooja, a simple payer of lighting lamps, adorning the Goddess with flowers and offering something will appease the Goddess. It is also a good day to start something new you have been wanting to do for a long time. Akshaya Tritiya is also a day for prayers and an auspicious time for new beginnings. Chanting Lakshmi Mantra in praise of Goddess Lakshmi can also be a part of your pooja. Apart from worshipping Goddess Lakshmi, you can also perform prayers to Mother Earth to be in the graces of Dhanalakshmi and Vaibhavalakshmi.

Buying Gold or Silver

As we know, Akshaya Tritiya is the time for wealth. You can buy gold or silver jewellery to invite wealth into your home. It is also believed that the new beginning of buying gold or silver will lead to more purchases in the future lasting a lifetime. You can choose to buy gold or silver depending on your affordability on this day.

Gold or Silver jewellery also makes for a great gift. Many jewellers run special offers and schemes on this day to help invite more customers to buy. You can start with something small like an earring or a ring to a necklace based on what your loved ones will like and your budget. There are so many jewellery options to choose from such as bracelets, rings, short chains, long chains, nose pins and the list goes on.

You don’t have to buy elaborate jewellery when it comes to gold or silver. If you are not sure about what to buy, you can always go for the simplest option of buying coins or bars. They are not only the easiest but also affordable without incurring any additional charges. So in case you are confused or do not want to buy something elaborate, you can choose the coins or bars.

Donations

Apart from buying gold and silver, you can also perform another act on Akshaya Tritiya, which is to donate to those in need. You can donate food or educational material for children in need to seek the blessings of Goddess Lakshmi. Buying clothes or donating to a shelter is also a great idea.

It can seem daunting to plan so many activities in a single day. Therefore, plan and do a simple pooja and any other activities you can fit in to seek the blessings of Goddess Lakshmi on the auspicious occasion of Akshaya Tritiya
