Is Akshaya Tritiya 2018 good for marriages? Is it auspicious for Gruhapravesh and other events? In 2018, Akshaya Tritiya date is April 18.
I am regularly getting these queries from visitors of Hindupad. Akshaya Tritiya 2018 (April 18) is good and auspicious for marriage or wedding and gruhapravesh (house warming ceremony).
And 18 April 2018 is auspicious for Marriage, Upanayanam, Gruharambha (starting house construction) and Griha Pravesh (House Warming Ceremony). And there is no mention of Aksharabhyasam (Akshararambham / Aksharasweekaram / Vidyarambham) and Keshakhandana (Mundan – First Hair cut for baby) in the list of Shubha Muhurta.
There are some regular planetary conjugations (grah sahyog) which considered auspicious for marriages on Akshaya Tritiya 2018.
As per the analysts and astrologers more than 50,000 thousands marriages are held every year on Akha Teej in major cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Lucknow, Surat, Ahmadabad, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai, etc,.
Many North Indian Hindi calendars, Marathi calendars, Gujarati calendars & Uttaradhi Mutt Panchangams and almost all Indian calendars indicated Akshaya Tritiya 2017 as an auspicious day for marriage & Upanayanam.
