The following is a small write-up on Akshaya Tritiya…
Baisakh or Vaisakha Shukla Tritiya (Third day in the bright fortnight of the Hindu Lunar Month Baisakh/Vaisaka is called Akshay or Akshaya Tritiya. It is believed that Treta Yuga (An era in which Lord Shri Ram incarnated) commenced on this day.
Lord Krishna narrated a story further. Once there was a poor, knowledgeful, religious godly brahmin, who came to know about the importance of this day through some great saint. In spite of the poverty, lack of co-operation from his spouse and having responsibilities of a big family, he performed the religious rites on this day every year. With the result in his re-birth, he became the King of Kushavati. He was praised and honored by all. Devotee, who observes fast on Akshay Tritiya, is blessed with fulfillment of all the desires.
