Akshaya Tritya 2021 is just a few days away, the exact date being May 14 and we are super excited. Amid this pandemic, it is these few festivals that bring in some occasion of happiness. This Hindu festival falls on the Lunar day of Shukla Paksha in the month of Vaisakha. Akshaya Tritya is a Sanskrit word where Akshaya means the never diminishing sense of happiness while Tritya means third. Hindus invest in gold to this day as the belief is that buying gold on this occasion brings in prosperity. 

Auspicious Timing

The festival is falling on a Friday this year with the muhurat being:

  • 05:38 to 12:18. 
  • Tritiya tithi begins on May 14, at 05:38
  • Tritiya tithi ends on May 15, at 07:59

Gold Purchase Timing

The auspicious time to buy gold is between 05:38 on May 14, to 05:30 on May 15.

What To Do

Begin the day with an early morning bath and then do the puja. Offer incense sticks, basil leaves, flowers, sandalwood paste and yellow clothes to Lord Vishnu. Next, recite the Vishnu Chalisa or Vishnu Sahasranama and then the bhog. 


As per mythology, Akshaya Tritya is marked by Treta Yuga. Usually, Akshaya Tritiya and the birthday anniversary of the 6th incarnation of Lord Vishnu --Parashurama Jayanti-- falls on the same. However, sometimes the tithi can fall a day before Akshaya Tritiya.
