Akshaya Tritiya 2021: Akshaya Tritiya will be celebrated on Friday, May 14 this year. Hindus consider the day to be very auspicious and holy.

The Shukla Paksha Tritiya Tithi of the Vaishakha month is observed as Akshaya Tritiya or Akha Teej. People believe that Akshaya Tritiya brings good luck, success and happiness because the word Akshaya means never diminishing.

Any Japa, Yajna, Pitra-Tarpan, Dan-Punya performed on this day never diminish and stays forever, according to beliefs. Hindu mythology says Treta Yuga started on Akshaya Tritiya.
