2022 Akshaya Tritiya Puja Date and Pooja Timing

Akshaya Tritiya, also known as Akha Teej, which falls on Shukla Paksha Tritiya in the month of Vaishakha is considered to be a highly auspicious and holy day for the Hindu community. If Akshaya Tritiya falls on Rohini Nakshatra on Wednesday, it is considered very auspicious. The word Akshaya means “never diminishing”. Accordingly, the benefits of performing any sacred act like Dan-Punya, Yajna, Japa, Pitra-Tarpan, etc., on this day never diminish and will continue with the person forever.

It is believed that Akshaya Tritiya brings good luck and success. People choose this day to purchase Gold because it is believed that Gold bought on this day will never diminish and will bring prosperity and more wealth in the coming future.

The day of Akshaya Tritiya is ruled by Lord Vishnu, the preserver God in Hindu Trinity. As per Hindu scriptures, Treta Yuga began on the day of Akshaya Tritiya. Usually, Akshaya Tritiya and Parashurama Jayanti occur on the same day, but sometimes, depending on the time of Tritiya Tithi, Parashurama Jayanti may occur one day before Akshaya Tritiya.

Vedic astrologers mention Akshay Tritiya is a highly auspicious day free from all malefic effects. As per Hindu Astrology, the three lunar days, Yugadi, Akshaya Tritiya and Vijay Dashami are free from all malefic effects and hence they don’t need any Muhurta to do any auspicious work.
