Happy Akshata Tritiya:
The significance of this auspicious day.
Akshaya Tritiya has a very rare celestial combination, because of which a “sacred energy field of a higher dimension and power” gets created. Akshaya Tritiya falls on the third day of the bright half of Vaishakh month (April-May), when the Sun and Moon are simultaneously at their peak of brightness, which happens only once every year.
This rare celestial combination has a great impact on all of us. We are the peak of our potential. Our vibrations are higher than ever before. We get thoughts which are full of potential which we need to be aware of. This is like the whole Universe blessing us with Divine Downloads, which if implemented in action will lead us to great success. Stars, Planets and Celestial objects form a rare combination on their own, and we need to use it to get the best out of us.
Influence of Sun and the Moon Energies:
The Sun represents the Male energy and the Moon represents the female energy. Let us see just one example of the many of both energies impact on us. When you are in “Thinking Mood” there is influence of Moon energy and when you take any “Action” you are being influenced by the Sun energy. It is great to have a combination of both energies for Growth and Success.
Never Diminishing or Ever Growing Power:
Akshaya Tritiya is a day which generates Never Diminishing Power. Whatever you think keeps Growing and Expanding. It is called as a Seed Principle. A single seed has the potential of the infinity. The seed has a program which is invisible, the whole existence acts on this small seed and pulls out the hidden potential.
Like the seed, we all have thoughts. On this day the whole Universe acts on these Thoughts which are invisible, and brings out the materialisation which creates a new reality.
One example is the famous “Akshaya Patram”, as mentioned in the Puranas, a vessel that keeps producing in Food as demanded in an unlimited way. On Akshaya Tritiya the whole existence is the “Akshaya Patram”, manifesting abundance and the Unlimited.
Rai Gunda kairi pickle...
Common names include fragrant manjack, snotty gobbles, glue berry,anonang, pink pearl, bird lime tree, Indian cherry, Booch (Hindi), लसोड़ा Lasoda Tenti टेंटी, Dela डेला or Gunda (Hindi), Lasura (Nepali) and Bhokar (Marathi). The fruit is also known as phoà-pò
This pickle is an old traditional favourite of Gujarat and is of enormous popularity amongst all Gujaratis. Gunda is a kind of a berry and since it is available only from March to June, it is bought in bulk quantities to be made into a pickle. Gundas have to be destalked and cleaned well from the insides because their seeds are surrounded by a sticky substance which has to be removed before stuffing.
Gundas are stuffed with spiced mixture of pickling spices, grated mangoes and mustard oil. It is very essential that the gundas are completely immersed in pickle oil to preserve them for a long time.
This recipe is my husband's Mami's and no one made better Rai Kairi Gunda than her..
In Goa the small Desi mangoes which are juicy & can be sucked are called Ghotan. They are also called Riwal mango in Maharashtra...
It is called Sasav .... Sasav meaning Mustard seeds in konkani..the regional language of Goans.
This Sweet and sour preparation is a side dish and can be eaten with rice and roti.. This was prepared by removing the pulp of 4 small mangoes and keeping the seeds in it too.
