Akshaya Trithiya
May 8th, 2016 by Sowmya

Akshaya Tritiya is observed on the third day of Shukla Paksha (waxing phase of moon) in Vaishakh Month. It is believed that the sun and the moon are most radiant and best placed on the day. Lord Vishnu and his incarnations are worshipped on this day.
In 2016, the Akshaya Trithiya falls on 9th May 2016.
[The word ‘Kshaya’ means dissipating or reducing; hence the word ‘Akshaya’ broadly means perennial abundance. Purification, meditation, reflection and intention are prime today as the Sun and The Moon are exalted on Akshaya Tritiya. The Sun and the Moon are considered to be the eyes of the Lord. Since the sun and Moon are in exalted positions the lords eyes are fully open on Akshaya thrithiya day, hence His kataksha falls fully on all of us on that day. A special energy from Mahavishnu is available on this day. This energy can help us in achieving our resolutions and goals. We can also make resolutions for our Spiritual as well as our material goals. This is because #Vairagya is not renouncing or negating life but it is non-attachment. ]
The significance of Akshayathrithiya
Akshaya Patra Story
In the Mahabharata, While the Pandavas were in exile, Sri Krishna presented them with an Akshaya Patra – a bowl which gives unlimited amount of food. It is believed that Krishna had presented it on Vaishakha Shukla Paksha Tritiya day.
 
Birth of Parashuram
Parashuram, the sixth Avatar, of Srihari Vishnu appeared on the day.
Beginning of Treta Yuga
According to the Puranas, the day also marks the beginning to Treta Yuga.
Writing of Mahabharata
On Akshaya Tritiya day, Veda Vyasa began the composition of the Mahabharata. He narrated the great epic of Sri Ganesha on the day and who began writing it down non stop.
One of the most important and popular story associated with observing Akshaya Tritiya is that of Sri Krishna and Kuchela. Kuchela, a poor Brahmin and
schoolmate of Sri Krishna, visited Sri Krishna with the intention of asking some financial favor. Kuchela, also known as Sudama, carried with him handful of poha or aval (beaten rice). Kuchela was received warmly by Sri Krishna at Dwarka. On reaching, the palace of Krishna, Kuchela was ashamed to give the ‘poha’ to Krishna – as it was filled with stones and it also was drenched in his sweat. But the ever playful Krishna noticed the small bag in the hand of his schoolmate and soon grabbed it and ate a handful of ‘poha’. Kuchela could not believe his eyes, Krishna, the Lord all beings, eating his poha. Kuchela had tears in his eyes. The intense devotion of Kuchela came out in the form of tears – tears rolled down from his eyes. He was speechless.
It is said ‘Athiti Devo Bhava’ (Guest are equal to God) and Krishna treated Kuchela like a God. The poor Brahmin was so overwhelmed by the love shown
by Krishna that he forgot to ask for financial help and returned home empty handed.
On reaching his village Sudama could not find his old hut. Instead his hut was replaced by a palace. His wife and children were wearing good clothes and
everything that was old and worn out was replaced with new.
It didn’t take long for Kuchela to realize that all this was the ‘leela’ of the ever-smiling Sri Krishna. The day Kuchela met Sri Krishna was hence observed
as Akshaya Tritiya.
This story proves that there is no greater offering to God than steadfast devotion.
Here is the link to the Satyanarayana puja (http://www.mantraaonline.com/satyanarayana-puja/), that can be performed on the Akshaya trithiya day.
Thanks to our Satsanghi Shobana Shankar for sharing this story for publishing on the site.

May 7th, 2013 by Sowmya

Narasimha Chaturdasi or Narasimha Jayanthi is the appearance anniversary of Lord Narasimhadeva, the half-man, half-lion incarnation of the Supreme Lordnarasimha. On this day fasting is observed until dusk, and then followed by feasting. This is a most auspicious day to remember the great mercy the Lord has upon His pure devotees to protect them from all varieties of dangerous situations.

Here are some beautiful prayers for worshipping Lord Narasimhadeva:
