The Divinely Golden Day
Gold is the purest emotion of creation. Gold is the emotion of God. That's why in every culture people have accepted gold as money. Gold, especially in India, is much more than just a precious metal. It is part of the fabric of the culture and an inseparable part of the belief system. It is the essence from which the universe was created.
Hri – Root word, meaning imperishable
Hiranya - Sanskrit word for Gold
Hiranyagarbha – The one born out of Gold, refers to Brahma - the Creator God
As per Vedic mythology, the Creator deposited a seed in the waters of the dark and lifeless universe. The seed became a bright golden egg as radiant as the sun. From this cosmic egg was born Brahma - the incarnation of the Creator Himself.
Akshaya Tritiya is the golden day to buy gold. On this day, wealth will increase in homes where gold coins and items are kept for pooja and worshipped as Goddess Lakshmi. The Tamil Siddhas, the spiritual scientists of Southern India, spoke of an unchallenged Divine law – ‘Wearing Gold attracts Gold’.
This makes it an ideal and very auspicious day to purchase gold, silver, gems, ornaments, jewelry and valuables. It is believed that if a person purchases a small amount of gold (at least 1 gm) on this day, the gold will accumulate more round the year.
The Sacred Day for Ancestors
This day is very blessed for your departed ancestors. You can yourself do a ritual offering on this day before sunset. Place black sesame seeds and rice or rice powder on your right palm. Pour water over the items. Think of your departed ancestors and offer the rice powder and sesame. After this ritual, discard the material. This will do a lot of good for you.
