Shubh Akshay Tritiya! Akshay Trithiya Shloka & Images


Akshaya Tritiya or also known as Akha Teej or Akti is considered to be the most auspicious period. The meaning is ‘third day of unending prosperity’. In recent times, the common notion in India is to purchase gold or property or start new things like a marriage, well this is true. But one important aspect of Akshaya Tritiya is also to donate, to give back, do charity. It is said that the charity done on Akshaya Tritiya remains ‘Akshaya’, imperishable and eternal.

So instead of making a purchase today let us donate to the ones who need it the most. This Shloka depicts the importance of Dana (donation) in society.

and the worst of them doesn’t give even after being asked by the needy.
