Akshaya Tritiya 2024 Story and Significance

We have understood what Akshaya Tritiya is, and now we will learn about the Story and the Significance of Akshaya Tritiya: 

Akshaya Tritiya Story

Story 1: The Vessel That Is Never Empty

During the journey, the Pandavas received a magical vessel called Akshaya Patra from Lord Sun on Akshaya Tritiya. This vessel could provide endless food, and there was an instance when a Sage visited them, but Draupadi had no food to offer to them.

Krishna got stuck to an empty bowl and ate it, satisfying himself and the entire universe. From that day, the vessel became known as Akshaya Patra, and Akshaya Tritiya became a special day.

Story 2: Beginning of a New Era

After the battle between Goddess Durga and the demon Mahishasura, Mahishasura was killed, stating the end of Satya Yuga and the beginning of Treta Yuga. Since then, akshaya tritiya akha teej has been celebrated as the beginning of a new era.

Story 3: Krishna and Sudama’s Friendship

On Akshaya Tritiya, Lord Krishna and his childhood friend Sudama reunited. Sudama visited Krishna in Dwarka, seeking help at his wife’s insistence. Although embarrassed by Krishna’s wealth, Sudama didn’t ask for anything. Krishna, knowing Sudama’s heart, found and ate the rice flakes Sudama brought as a gift.

When Sudama returned home, he found his hut replaced by a grand palace and his family was wearing a royal attire. He realised Krishna’s blessings had brought them abundance. Since then, Akshaya Tritiya has been celebrated as a day of prosperity.
