Title: Akshaya tritiya - myths and reality
Post by: Virinchi on May 06, 2011, 08:06:58 AM
The Myth : If you buy gold on this day, it will multiply your wealth and you will prosper all through out the year.
(https://s29.postimg.cc/iyj84jdyv/akshaya_tritiya.jpg)

Astrology : On this day sun and moon are usually exalted in aries and taurus.
But their 'real' strengths can be known only through Navamsa and today sun in debilitated(neech) in libra and moon occupies leo.
Also, the planet which controls gold is jupiter and its not strongly placed every year on this day.
Luckily its in own sign and powerful now but in past 2 years it was very weak.

Reality : Sun and moon have nothing to do with gold.
Also there is no evidence in any shastra that you should buy gold today.

Till now i\'ve seen many (especially women) buying lot of gold and ornaments on this day but none of them saw any prosperity just because of this.
Few of them had better days, but that was already seen in their charts.

If this day is really auspiscious, then it should help people with bad dasas too if they buy gold today.
But in reality, they lost more money, got bad health, even sold the gold they already had.

Also, the stories behind this akshya tritiya are generated and publicised by few jewellers and businessmen in tamilnadu initially.
Later this spread to south india and now to entire india.

If you still want to buy gold today itself, buy it but dont expect miracles to happen in next 365 days.

I\'m yet to see one person with bad dasa, who bought gold on akshaya tritiya and prospered against his/her karma.

Its okay to buy some gold if you have some occassion to celebrate like your wedding or something.
buying gold every year on same day just because someone told you, is just foolishness.

Gold rate doubled in past 4 years because of these cheap business tactics employed by few businessmen.

Hahahaha:lol: if you can afford, you can buy on anyday and if your planets are good, you will prosper automatically.
But i\'ve seen few who take loans to buy gold today and thats bad :mad:

The biggest joke/fact is that wives of those gold traders/jewellers dont buy gold on this day.
They know its just a business tactic

If someone can afford to buy Gold at these prices, he might be already having favorable planets.
Gold/Silver prices would go through fluctuations and one can buy when prices correct. Tightening of liquidity will decrease prices, but prices would move up due to lack of faith in currencies.

BTW in Eastern India Akshay Trithiya is celebrated as auspicious day to start various activities like ploughing land, construction etc, not as a gold buying day.

This is really a very good post from Virinchi. A right post in the right time!

Whatever Virinchi has told is absolutely right. Nobody was celebrating this Akshaya Trithiyai before 20 years. This is just a gimmick. A marketing trend set up by the jewellers and business men in Tamil Nadu. Later it went on to reach the entire South India. Now it has become a trend of entire India.

The same thing can be said for \"Pradosham\". Nobody was even aware of this \"Pradosham\" before 20 years. But now, you can see the huge crowd in all Siva Temples on the day of \"Pradosham\". Few people are taking advantage of many people\'s innocence and ignorance. It\'s a real pity that Astrology is being used as a tool for this. Because of this only few people are loosing faith in Astrology.

Akshay Tritiya is supposed to be one of three most auspicious days, as per Hindu Calender

The buying of gold is considered very auspicious, is booking of house or initial payment for house buying equally auspicious

Also is baby birth on that day considered an auspicious for the new born's future

Can somebody shed light on same

As far as I know,  it's  one of only two days of an year,  when both the luminaries sun and moon are exalted .  :)

Very true. I have learnt few things from this site over last few years  ... On of them is
 
Ideally today is a day to multiply your Karmas .... whatever you do today magnifies and never exhausts
Marketers convinced the materialistic ones that gold bought today will not exhaust lifelong .....( i was also a believer few years back )

My two cents  on the same

!! Om Heem Shreem Laxmi Vasudevaya Namah !!
Akshay Tritiya or Akha Teej
A day for noble causes for self purification.
Best things to do today in helping the needy and poor ( pious brahnims or old aged better)
- Water and Butter Milk (to beat the heat)
- Footwear/Umbrella/Clothes (to protect body from heat & injury)
- Blankets, Shawls , Quilts , Cushions ( to give them a peaceful sleep/rest after hardworking day )
- Ghee/Honey/enriching foods ( to strengthen immune system)
- Coconut, Betel Nut, Chandan - (used in pujas)
Above will also please various deities including Ganesha, Shani devta, Ambe Mata and all which provide healthy, wealthy and peaceful life
This day will multiply your pious acts ...
