Best wishes on Akshaya TritiyaToday is Akshaya Tritya. It falls on the third lunar day of the bright half (Shukla Paksha) of the Indian month of Vaisakha. On this very auspicious day, Hindus of India and other countries worship Lord Vishnu. Hindus believe that Lord Ganesha and Veda Vyas started writing the Mahabharata on this day. Lord Parashuram was also born on this day. It is also the birthday of Goddess Annapurna. According to Indian traditional beliefs, buying gold on Akshaya Tritiya brings good luck and success to the family, and is likely to bring wealth in the future.
My best wishes to the ISC family-members on this very auspicious day!
