Join our spiritual sangha on the auspicious day of axaya-tritiyā to honour and commemorate Self Enquiry Life Fellowship’s Foundation Day with spiritual founder His Holiness Swami Vidyadhishananda during a three-day online workshop.
Axaya-tritiyā that translates as the imperishable third falls on the third day of the ascending moon. The day is celebrated as the birthdays of highly learned Lord Parashurāma and Shukrāchārya (Lord Venus). This day is even more significant to those who are interested in Jyotisha (science of light) 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 descended in the familial lineage of sage Bhrigu. In essence the day is a divine remembrance of sage Bhrigu. 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.
