Akshaya Navami is one of the important Hindu rituals that is observed on the ‘Navami’ (9th day) of the ‘Shukla Paksha’ (the bright fortnight of moon) during the month of ‘Kartik’ in the traditional Hindu calendar. This day holds same significance as the auspicious day of ‘Akshaya Tritiya’, a grand festival celebrated on the ‘Vaishakha Shukla Tritiya’. As per the Gregorian calendar, Akshaya Navami falls between the months of October-November. As the name ‘Akshaya’ implies, the rewards for performing any devotional or charitable activities on this day never diminishes and benefits the observer not only in the present life but also during his/her future births. Akshaya Navami is celebrated two days prior to ‘Dev Uthani Ekadashi’.
