Akshaya Tritiya Importance
As per legends, Lord Parshuram, the sixth incarnation of Lord Vishnu, was born on Akshaya Tritiya. It is believed that individuals who worship Lord Vishnu on Akshaya Tritiya with pure devotion and dedication are blessed with peace, prosperity and good luck.
According to ancient Hindu mythology, Lord Sun gifted Akshaya Patra (pot) to Pandavs which was always full of food each day until Draupadi finished her meal. Once sage Durvasa visited Pandavas during their exile period. Draupadi had already eaten food by the time Durvasa arrived that day. With the fear that there was no food left to serve the sage, she started crying and prayed to Lord Krishna for help. Lord Krishna came and ate just grain left in the pot and announced that he was satisfied by the “meal”. This satiated the hunger of Durvasa and his disciples.
