Akshaya Trutiya.

On Akshaya Trutiya day, people throng jewelry houses

to buy gold,which is considered the ultimate symbol of

wealth and prosperity. Satya Yuga is said to have begun

on this day. Any meaningful work initiated on this day is

expected to yield good returns.In Mahabharata it was on

this day that Pandavas received Akshaya Patram(unending

bowl of food) from Lord Krishna.

Many luminaries were born during this period. Basaveshwara

was born on May 4, Ramanujacharya and Adi Shankaracharya on

May 6, Swami Chinmayananda on May 8 and Lord Buddha on May 16.

It is the birthday of Lord Parashuram, one of the 6th avataras of

Lord Vishnu.Veda Vyasa and Lord Ganapathi began to write Mahabharat

on this day. The meaning of the word Akshaya is infinite that which

never recedes. The Devata for the month is Madhusudana.
