Akshay Tritiya In Jainism
In Jainism, Akshay Tritiya is celebrated as the day when Lord Rishabhnath had broken his fast that lasted for 13 months and 13 days. He was the first Jain Tirthankara. This year, we are celebrating the day on 18th April. The followers of Jainism also observe a fast and break it by drinking sugarcane juice.
