Join our spiritual sangha on the auspicious day of axaya-tritiyā to honour and celebrate Self Enquiry Life Fellowship’s foundation day with spiritual founder His Holiness Swami Vidyadhishananda. His Holiness will share words of wisdom, sublime chanting, ceremonial vespers and blessings and share the Nonprofit’s vision for the upcoming eight years. See rare photos and access our new publications. Members of our Board of Directors will be present to celebrate and commemorate the Nonprofit’s founding. We will share in tea and an Ayurvedic snack toward the end of the evening fellowship.
Axaya-tritiyā or the third day of the ascending moon is the birthday of Shukrāchārya (Lord Venus) as well as the highly learned warrior Lord Parashurāma. This day is more significant to those who are interested in Jyotisha (science of light and heavenly bodies) as the day when great sage Bhrigu rishi completed his compendium on Jyotisha known as Bhrigu-samhitā. Every noble act on this day is said to be at least tripled in results and traditionally this day has been revered as one with immortal virtuosity.
A closer look at the divine legacy of axaya-tritiyā reveals to us that all three events ascribed to this day are related to sage Bhrigu. While Venus (the ruling Lord of planet Venus) is hailed to be the son of sage Bhrigu, Lord Parashurāma also took birth in the familial lineage of sage Bhrigu. In essence the day is a divine remembrance of sage Bhrigu who is hailed in the Sanskrit lore as the one with sārupya-moxa or the great seer (rishi) who can imitate and look like the compassionate overlord of our solar system! In the spiritual philosophy classic of Bhagavad-Gitā, Lord Krishna declares that among the sages he is Bhrigu, as it were, thus conferring the highest seer status on Bhrigu.
