Date: 
Tue, 2019-05-07

Chandan-yatra is a twenty-one day festival observed in temples—especially in India—during the summer season. During Chandana-yatra, devotees anoint the Deities of the Lord with cooling sandalwood paste.

Akshaya tritiya, according to the Vedic calendar, is a day considered to be conducive to success in any significant endeavor. Traditionally, those aware of Akshaya tritiya's benefits schedule major life events—marriages, initiations, business ventures, establishing a new place of residence—on this day.
