A few beliefs about Akshaya Tritiya
• It is an annual springtime festival of Hindus and Jains alike
• The sixth incarnation of Lord Vishnu, Lord Parashurama was born on this day
• This day marks the birth of Goddess Annapoorna
It is a belief that a new venture begun on this day brings prosperity. Whether you start a new business, a new practice or a new activity, it is believed to bear fruitful results. There is a frenzy in people to buy gold during this season, with the belief that they will get unending prosperity. In this crisis hour, when jewellery stores and other shops are closed, many of us don’t know what to do. We fail to realise that we can still get unending prosperity by following our age-old tradition of performing an act of charity. Doing charity, in India is considered to be the highest form of service, out of which Annadaan is considered to be Mahadaan. You can visit organisations or NGOs that help the people in need or make online donations, it is still believed as a service.
The Akshaya Patra Foundation is one such NGO you can choose to donate to in this crisis hour. With its COVID-19 relief Service, it provides freshly-cooked meals, grocery kits to marginalised communities and happiness kits to children studying in Government and Government-aided schools. Since the first wave of the pandemic, the organisation has continuously worked to feed the needy people by supporting the Government of India. So far, over 12-crore meals have been served, cumulatively.
Inherit good deeds on Akshaya Tritiya by making Anna Daan with Akshaya Patra by supporting the distribution of meals during the tough times of the pandemic. Support the needy people hailing from challenging socio-economic backgrounds. Help them survive this pandemic with your donation and gain their blessings for feeding them healthy meals in return.
Donate online to feed the marginalised sections of the society this Akshaya Tritiya and get a year full of prosperity.
