The chariot construction work for Puri Ratha Yatra commences today at ‘Ratha Khala’ on the occasion of Akshaya Tritiya.  😍🙏🏼↓

On the auspicious day of Akshaya Trutiya, the ‘Agyanaa Mala’ (consent garland of Mahaprabhu) is received
and Ratha Katha Anukula ritual is performed.
This starts the process of chariot construction for Prabhu Balabhadra, Devi Subhadra & Mahaprabhu Jagannatha at the Bada Danda of Shree Jagannatha Temple, Puri.

Three 12-feet-long Dhaura logs are brought to the Ratha Khala. The process begins with an axe being given the divine touch after getting the ‘Agyanaa Mala’ from the deities followed by special rituals conducted by temple priests.

#Thread Idi0t’s Guide to #NoBindiNoBusiness, for the trolls who deliberately misinterpret the hashtag n the thought behind it. Repeat after me, #No_Bindi_No_Business is about CHOICE. It is not a compulsion, it is not a law. It is about the right of the ordinary Hindu to say NO!
When brands advertise for Hindu festivals like #AkshayaTritiya #Ugadi #Deepavali #GaneshChaturthi it is a reasonable expectation that they should respect the consumer’s culture, traditions, symbols. A bindi/Tilak/sindoor is one of the prominent Hindu symbols #NoBindiNoBusiness
If a brand wants Hindu money, the brand HAS to respect Hindu sentiments. The ads have to reflect the Hinduness, the joy, the spiritual significance of the festival. You want Hindus to buy gold from you for #AkshayaTritiya then show respect to Hindu culture. #NoBindiNoBusiness

वैशाख शुक्ल #AkshayaTritiya
सतयुग का प्रारंभ अक्षय तृतीया से हुआ था

चिरंजीवी भगवान #परशुराम का पृथ्वी पर अवतरण भी इसी तिथि को हुआ था

#अक्षय_तृतीया को किये दान का कभी क्षय नहीं होता, आज मन से दान पुण्य कीजिए

श्रीहरि विष्णु रक्षा करें, इस महामारी से मुक्ति दिलाएँ।
शुभ कामनाएँ
#अक्षय_तृतीया को विष्णुजी दो ऋषियों
नर नारायण के रूप में अवतरित हुए जिनकी तपस्या से संसार में सुख शांति का विस्तार हुआ
द्वापर में दोनों ने #श्रीकृष्ण व अर्जुन बन लीला रची
केदार-बदरीवन में उन्होंने जिन पार्थिव लिंग की पूजा की, वह शिव रूपी केदारेश्वर ज्योतिर्लिंग हुए- शिव पुराण Image
नर-नारायण ने घोर तपस्या से केदारेश्वर व बदरीकाश्रम में विष्णु के विग्रहरूप की स्थापना की- महाभारत
केदारेश्वर ज्योतिर्लिंग के आसपास पांडवों ने मंदिर निर्माण किया, #आदि_शंकराचार्य ने मंदिर का पुनर्निर्माण किया,
आगे चलकर राजा भोज ने भव्य मंदिर का निर्माण कराया। #Kedarnath Image

VaishAkha-shukla-tRtIyA a.k.a #AkshayaTritiya has morphed into a gold acquisition spree in recent years.

This is a thread attempting to share some details on AT's actual traditional practices.
Oldest ref to #AkshayaTritiya is in विष्णुधर्मसूत्र. Emphasis is on the worship of vAsudeva,fasting, oblations of whole grains & donating them.Whatever a man donates on that day becomes inexhaustible.
उपोषितोऽक्षतैर्वासुदेवमभ्यर्च्य तानेव हुत्वा दत्त्वा च सर्वपापेभ्यः पूतो भवति।
The MatsyapurANa too praises donation or sacrifice on #AkshayaTritiya. Fasting is recommended as well. The tithi becomes special with kRttikA-nakShatra.
