Why do people buy gold on Akshaya Tritiya 2024? Everything you could ever want to know

Akshaya Tritiya 2024: Two mythical tales explain why it is good to purchase gold on Akshaya Tritiya.

The most auspicious season of the year, Akshaya Tritiya 2024, has arrived. Around the nation, Akshaya Tritiya is observed with much fanfare and extravagance each year. Another name for it is Akha Teej. In the month of Vaishakha, Akshaya Tritiya coincides with Shukla Paksha Tritiya. People start starting businesses, getting married, or engaging in other auspicious activities on this day, which is regarded as one of the most auspicious of the year. Since the word “Akshaya” means “things that cannot be damaged,” people purchase real estate and precious metals on this day, thinking that its worth will increase forever.

On the day of Akshaya Tritiya, people customarily purchase gold, silver, and other precious metals. Drik Panchang states that this year’s Akshaya Tritiya will take place on May 10. On May 10, the puja muhurat will run from 5:33 AM to 12:18 PM.

On Akshaya Tritiya, why do people purchase gold?

It is thought that on the auspicious day of Akshaya Tritiya, Lord Shiva and Lord Brahma bestowed upon Lord Kuber their blessings and assigned him the duty of securing the wealth of heaven. Therefore, it is thought that purchasing valuable items like gold and silver under Lord Kuber’s name will only appreciate in value.

According to another legend, Lord Krishna paid the Pandavas an unexpected visit on this day when they were in exile. Draupadi got up and begged for pardon for not cooking a lavish feast. After giving her a blessing, Lord Krishna removed a single stalk of herb from the food bowl and presented it to the Pandavas, giving them the Akshaya Patra, or bowl of abundance. Because they think that the value of gold, silver, and other metals would never go down, they purchase them on this day. It is said that purchases made on this day will always benefit others and appreciate in value.

Buddha Purnima 2024: Five obscure but important facts about Gautam Buddha

Published

on

Buddha Purnima 2024: This is one of the most fortunate days of the year. Buddha Purnima is observed nationwide with great fanfare and fanciness each year. Buddha Purnima is celebrated by the Buddhist community and is thought to be the birth anniversary of Gautam Buddha. It is remembered as the day that Siddhartha Gautam became Gautam Buddha after attaining enlightenment beneath the Bodhi tree in Bodh Gaya. He engaged in extensive and profound meditation to comprehend the essence of human existence and the source of all suffering before achieving enlightenment. On May 23, people celebrate Buddha Purnima. Here are some interesting facts about Gautam Buddha for you to know while you enjoy the celebrations.

Unknown facts regarding Gautam Buddha:

Astrologer’s prophecy: An astrologer foresaw that the son of Suddhodhana would grow up to be a great person or a holy man even before Gautam Buddha was born. This alarmed Suddhodhana, who constructed three palaces filled with opulent worldly amenities after Siddhartha Gautam was born in order to keep him away from religious teachings.

The family of Gautam Buddha: Gautam Buddha spent many years confined to the palace, preventing him from learning about the outside world. His parents were Queen Maha, a princess of Koli, and Suddhodhana, King of Nepal. Rahul is his son, whom he had with Yashodhara after they were married.

Introduction to Spirituality: At the age of 29, while out for a ride in the countryside, Gautam Buddha saw four things: an old man, a corpse, a sick man, and a wandering ascetic. This experience made him curious about life and inspired him to learn more. These experiences altered his outlook on life.

Wife and son: Early in life, Gautam Buddha left his family to pursue his quest for the meaning of life. Later on, though, he made amends with both his father and his wife, who went on to become a nun and disciple. At the age of seven, Rahul, his son, became the youngest monk and began living with Gautam Buddha.

Travels of Gautam Buddha: Up until the age of 80, Gautam Buddha travelled nonstop in search of answers regarding life and existence. Since nothing in this world is permanent, he taught his disciples to do the best for humanity.
