Akshya Tritiya is an auspiscious Vedic occasion – a very sacred Vedic Muhurat – and is thus, associated with ever-lasting harmony, happiness, peace and prosperity. Akshay means eternal, and thus anything that is brought home on this day is said to last forever. Hence, Akshay Tritiya is a day when one can buy anything lucky or auspicious, and it is said to grow and give excellent results.
Since, the gold symbolises wealth, and it is said to be the best symbol of prosperity, people buy gold on Akshay Tritiya, as buying and taking home gold on this day signifies that their prosperity would never diminish.
Akshya Tritiya, also known as Akha Teej, is celebrated on the Tritiya (third day) of the Vaishakh Shukla Paksha and bears great significance in the Hindu calendar. The word Akshay means imperishable, inexhaustible. This is one of those three and a half pious Tithis in the Hindu calendar on which any auspicious event, be it a wedding, yagya, charity, buying of gold and property or a project, can be initiated without taking into account any other Muhurat. There is no need to refer to the Panchang on Akha Teej, because every minute of this particular day is said to be favourable. It is also believed that good deeds carried out on this day never go wasted.
Hence, one should try to remain calm and happy on this day, do some good deeds, make donations and buy something precious, preferably precious metals. Lucky talismans like Yantras, God idols etc. may also be bought on this day, and insititued at home/ office premises.
