Akshaya Tritiya : A Grantor of Inexhaustible Virtues
Propitious and inexhaustible are the religious merits of charity,bath, Japa, austerities and fire sacrifices performed on Akshaya Tritiya, which is celebrated on the thrid lunar day of the bright fortnight of the month of ‘Vaishaka’
As per the ‘ Bhavishya Purana’ the merits of all deeds carried out on Akshaya Tiritya become imperishable (Akshaya);that is why is it has been given the epithet of Akshaya. The ‘Matsya Purana’ enjoins that even fasting on this day bestows inexhaustible religious merits. The tretayuga started from this day. Therefore, this day destroys all sins and beings all good fortunes. It is also counted amongst the 3 1/2 auspicious moments.
Akshaya Tritya is a Hindu Holi Day , this day is ruled by god Vishnu, the preserver-god in the Hindu Trinity. It is also traditionally celebrated as the birthday of the Hindu sage Parashurama, the sixth Avatar (incarnation) of the god Vishnu. According to Hindu mythology, on this day the Treta Yuga began and the river Ganges, the most sacred river of India, descended to the earth from the heaven.
Bhagvan Rishabhadeva an incarnation of Hindu Trinity Lord Vishnu also known as Adinath is the first Tirthankara of the Jain sect. The Day of Akshay Tratiya is worshipped and said auspicious in Jainism because –
Tirthankara Rshabhdeva was king of Ayodhya. He being enlightened gave up all worldly pleasures and chose to lead the life of an ascetic and become a Jain monk. Jain monks do not own anything. They do not even cook food for themselves. While hungry or thirsty, they go to people and ask for food or drinking water. Tirthankara Rshabhdeva also went to people and asked food. However, the people of that time did not know anything about the acts of monks, as he was the first monk in this era. People of Ayodhya offered gold, jewellery, gemstones, elephants, horses, expensive garments and even their daughters to honour their beloved king. Rshabhdeva was not in quest of all these. He wanted only a morsel of food, but nobody it to offered him. Nobody understood that their king was asking for food. As there was no choice, he had to fast for a long time until his grand son Shreyansha kumara understood his need. Shreyansha Kumara, finally, offered him sugarcane juice and Rshabhdeva ended his fast after a year. This was on the day of Akshaya Tritiya. This is considered by the Jains as one of the best offerings. It is believed that bestowing upon religious gifts on Akshaya Tritiya becomes inexhaustible. Jains, even today, observe fast to commemorate their first Tirthankara Rshabhadeva and end their fast on Akshaya Tritiya with sugarcane juice.
This the day one bring home peace purity & prosperity ,even a Little flower is enough to bring all the happiness for mankind.
