Why Do People Buy Utensils on Akshay Tritiya?

Since the era of Mahabharata, there has been a practice of buying jewellery or utensils on the auspicious occasion of Akshay Tritiya. People purchase ornaments, precious metals, machines, and equipment to honour Goddess Laxmi. 


It is believed that when Lord Krishna visited Pandavas unannounced during their exile, Draupadi could not prepare a feast for him and was upset. Lord Krishna consoled Draupadi, kept a small herb in a vessel with food, and said it would be enough for him. He then granted them a boon, and they were presented with Askhay Patra, the inexhaustible divine vessel. Hence, the belief is that whatever is bought on this day will always bring double the fortune.


  1. So, buy the original kansa thali and replace it with your steel thali for doing pooja on this Akshay Tritiya. You can even buy a kansa thali set to serve prasadam or the bhog. Goddess Laxmi will surely bring good luck to you.
