Akshaya Tritiya (Akha Teej / Akha Trij) is a popular festival celebrated in Vaishakh Month of Hindu calendar.
As per the Hindu traditions and culture, this festival is considered as the most significant day to perform sacred deeds (Punya Karya).
In Sanskrit, the meaning of Akshaya is never diminishing. As the meaning says, on the day of Akshaya Tritiya people never feel the dearth of happiness or bliss.
Akshaya Tritiya is traditionally observed as the birthday of Parusurama, the sixth incarnation of Lord Vishnu. Puranas spoke about how he reclaimed the land from the sea. The brightness of the Sun and Moon is at its best at the west coast of India. Goa and Konkan regions, even today, are referred to as Parusurama Kshetra. He then settled 96 selected families there, called Shahanavkuli Brahmins, who are said to have created the cultural heritage of this part of India.
