Krishna-Sudama & Akshay Tritiya
This legend is believed to be one of the most significant ones, associated with the celebration of Akshaya Tritiya. Lord Krishna had a poor Brahmin friend, Sudama. Once, on the day of Akshaya Tritiya, Krishna got visited by Sudama. The purpose for his visit was to ask for some financial help from Krishna.
Akshaya Tritiya legend owes to the story of Krishna-Sudama.Sudama was welcomed in a grand fashion by his friend, which embarrassed him even more. Though he was treated with benevolence, Sudama was ashamed of not being capable to present his friend anything, but some Poha (beaten rice). Krishna did not care to mend his attitude toward the bond of friendship and relished the Poha gifted by his dear friend.
Being overwhelmed by the treatment, Sudama could not ask for anything more from Krishna. Hence, he returned home empty handed. On his return, Sudama found his hut transformed into an abode of royalty and everything appeared grand. It was a boon by Lord Krishna that Sudama attained much more than financial help. Since then, the day is celebrated as Akshaya Tritiya.
