Do You know what the favourite place of Kali Purusha (those under whose influence kali yuga functions) is? GOLD.
And do you know that AKSHAYA means that which gives INFINITE
"Akshaya Tritiya is a day which give Akshaya or infinite results to the Karma done that day"
Ironically, we are increasing the effects of ADHARMA (KALI), by buying GOLD on that day. Never ever have the shastras said that Lakshmi resides in gold, or that gold is in synonymity with Lakshmi.
The places of Lakshmi and which give Lakshmi Prapti are only four:
Hastha Kumbhasthala (the head of elephant)
The place where a sumangali applies Kumkum (above forehead or maang)
The Back portion of GOWMATA.
Ma Lakshmi is pleased and blesses only when the above are worshipped. Sadly, on Akshaya Tritiya, we are misguided to buy gold, and hence Kali doshas are multiplied, there by causing great misfortunes.
Shastras have clearly mentioned what has to be done on AKSHAYA TRITIYA.
UDAKUMBHA DAANAM: meaning giving a new pot full of water either to a temple or to anyone in need.
GALANTHIKA DAANAM: GALANTHIKA means the pot which is on the Shivalingam which keeps pouring drops of water on Lingam. GALANTHIKA should be donated to a Shiva temple to get rid of extreme difficulties that are burning our lives.
GOWSEVA: Any DAANAM given to Gowmata as food, multiplies infinitely and clears many graha doshas, and Misfortunes.
PITRU TARPANA: Tarpana given to Pitrus on this day. Give AKSHAYA PUNYA LOKAS to departed souls, and hence clears all Pitrudoshas that are the major cause for uncertainty, misfortune childlessness and failure.
CHANDANA SEVA TO VISHNU: Any Vishnu idol, should be nicely covered with sandalwood paste at home in the morning and Pooja should be done to the idol. This is why Chandanostsava is done in SIMHACHALAM TEMPLE, in ANDHRAPRADESH.
JAPA, HOMA, DAANA,YAGNA
VYAJANA, CHATRA, PADARAKSHA DANAM: Meaning donating Hand fans, umbrellas, and slippers to needy
SUVARNA DANAM: gold should be donated, not owned. Ironically what we do is doing the opposite lured by advertisements and getting bad benefits.
Before getting lured by advertisements of great commercial people, we should explore shastras and help ourselves from doing wrong and getting benefits rightly.
