According to Pandit
Parikshit Joshi, a resident of Airoli, “Akshaya Tritiya is one of the most auspicious days of the year. People organise Ganesha and Lakshmi pooja, and worship Lord Vishnu especially on this day to get better health and wealth. This day is considered auspicious for new events like weddings, inaugurations and so on.”
“Many people look for the
shubh muhurat, which is for a certain period of time during this day for gana and navagraha homa, and Shanti mantras,” Joshi said
As it is considered an
auspicious day for purchasing gold, usually the price of gold shoots up on the day.
