Every moment is auspicious on the Akshaya Tritiya day (also know as 'Akha Teej') which falls on the third day of the bright half of Hindu month Vaishakh. 'Akshaya' in Sanskrit means 'that which never diminishes.' It is also the birthday of Parashurama, Lord Vishnu's Sixth incarnation.
Self realization, It is being and becoming, not hearing and acknowledging; it is the whole soul becoming changed into what it believes. “Each soul is potentially divine”.

Devotees pray to Sri Maha Lakshmi Devi to bless and guide us to the highest goal of our Life.
