The significance of gifting silver on Akshaya Tritiya

Akshaya Tritiya, also known as Akti or Akha Teej, is one of the most auspicious days in the Hindu calendar. It falls on the third day of the bright half of the lunar month of Vaishakha. On this day, the stars and planets align in a unique way, creating a powerful energy that is said to bring good fortune and success to those who celebrate it. While there are many customs associated with this day, gifting silver is one of the most prevalent.

Silver has long been considered a precious metal in Indian culture especially in Traditional Silver Jewelry form. It is said to have healing properties and is often used in Ayurvedic medicine. Additionally, it is associated with the moon, which is believed to have a calming effect on the mind and body. Giving silver as a gift to Akshaya Tritiya is believed to bring good luck, wealth, and prosperity to the recipient.

There are many myths and stories associated with the tradition of gifting silver jewellery such as Silver Earrings, Silver Necklace, Silver Rings, Silver Bangles and Silver Bracelets on Akshaya Tritiya. According to one legend, the great sage Vyasa visited the Pandavas during their exile in the forest. The Pandavas were poor and had nothing to offer Vyasa, so Krishna suggested that they give him some grains of rice. As Vyasa began to eat the rice, it magically multiplied, providing enough food for the Pandavas and all the creatures in the forest. This event is said to have occurred on Akshaya Tritiya, and since then, it has been considered an auspicious day to give gifts.

In another story, the god of wealth, Kubera, prayed to Lord Shiva for wealth and prosperity. Shiva appeared to him and gave him a pot of rice that would never run out. Kubera shared the rice with others, and his wealth grew exponentially. This story is also associated with Akshaya Tritiya and is said to symbolize the abundance and prosperity that can be obtained through giving (checkout our Customised Bracelet for gift giving)
