Akshaya Tritiya

The reasons for Akshaya Triteeya being auspicious are many: Parashuram, the sixth incarnation of Vishnu was born on this day; Veda Vyas and Ganesha began writing the Mahabharata; on this day the Treta Yuga began; and on Akshaya Tritiya the river Ganga is said to have descended from heaven to earth.
Many Indians believe that this day is auspicious to buy gold and silver. But most of them do not seem to have an obvious  buying connection. One explanation is that since the word Akshaya means ever abundant and never diminishing, and wealth acquired on this day will only grow and therefore the desire to acquire the precious metals, as they symbolize wealth.
Akshaya Tritiya is one such momentous occasion, which is considered one of the most auspicious days of the Hindu Calendar. It is believed, any meaningful or auspicious activity started on this day would be fruitful.
