Akshay Tritiya Astrological Significance

Akshay Tritya occurs once a year when the Sun and Moon are in exaltation, as well as being at their brightest point during the day.

The three lunar periods are considered particularly auspicious in Vedic Astrology and are also known as Sade Teen Muhurat’. Sade means half and Teen means three, so Sade Teen Muhurat refers to a three-and-a-half Muhurat.

  • They are the first lunar period of Shukla Paksha(bright fortnight) of the Chaitra month,
  • The tenth phase of Ashvin month is taken as the second lunar period.
  • The first phase of Shukla Paksha of the Kartik month
  • The third phase of the month Vaishakh is taken as the third lunar period.

Here, the first three phases are considered as the full phase of the lunar month, and the other two are considered halves.

Akshay Tritiya Story

On this auspicious day, Sudama(Lord Krishna’s friend) visited Lord Krishna, expecting some financial help. Sudama was welcomed by Lord Krishna and treated as a god as his friend believed in “ Atithi Devo Bhava”. However, when Sudama observes the richness and prosperity of his friend, he feels ashamed to disclose his gift, which was a bowl of “poha” that he bought for him as a token of love and friendship.

Sudama headed back and, once he reached his home, discovered that his small hut had been replaced by a palace. It happened because Sudama’s honesty, simplicity and efforts were appreciated and accepted by Lord Krishna wholeheartedly.

Based on this incident, Lord Ganesha has said ” Remember the Kind of Giving is Thousand Times More Powerful than that of Giving”.
