On this day the sun and the moon are simultaneously at their peak of brightness. This year Akshaya Tritiya falls on April 27. It is also the birthday of Parshurama (an incarnation of Vishnu) and marks the beginning of the Golden Age. ‘Akshay' meaning the never diminishing stands for eternal prosperity for any new ventures started or investments made on this day.
