🙏🏻 Kartik Shukla Navami (02 November 2022) is called ‘Akshay Navami’ and ‘Amla Navami’ on Wednesday. On Akshaya Navami, there is an inexhaustible result of chanting, charity, tarpan, bathing etc. Worship of Amla tree has special significance on this day. In worship, aarti should be done to the Amla tree with camphor or ghee lamp and there is also a law to circumambulate this tree while reciting the following mantra:
यानि कानि च पापानि जन्मान्तरकृतानि च |
तानि सर्वाणि नश्यन्तु प्रदक्षिणपदे पदे ||
After this, after feeding the holy Brahmins and true seeker-devotees under the Amla tree, then it should be done by itself. If there is no gooseberry tree in the house, then by planting a gooseberry plant in a pot or in any holy, religious place, ashram etc., you can worship under the tree. Amla trees are planted in many ashrams. Even by visiting these holy places, you can take auspicious benefits of worshiping hymns.

According to Narada Purana
कार्तिके शुक्लनवमी याऽक्षया सा प्रकीर्तता । तस्यामश्वत्थमूले वै तर्प्पणं सम्यगाचरेत् ।। ११८-२३ ।।*
देवानां च ऋषीणां च पितॄणां चापि नारद । स्वशाखोक्तैस्तथा मंत्रैः सूर्यायार्घ्यं ततोऽर्पयेत् ।। ११८-२४ ।।
ततो द्विजान्भोजयित्वा मिष्टान्नेन मुनीश्वर । स्वयं भुक्त्वा च विहरेद्द्विजेभ्यो दत्तदक्षिणः ।। ११८-२५ ।।
एवं यः कुरुते भक्त्या जपदानं द्विजार्चनम् । होमं च सर्वमक्षय्यं भवेदिति विधेर्वयः ।। ११८-२६ ।।
The Navami that comes in the Shukla Paksha of Kartik month is called Akshaya Navami. On that day, offer rituals to the gods, sages and ancestors near the root of the Peepal tree and offer Arghya to the Sun God. Thereafter, after offering sweet food to the brahmins, give them dakshina and eat the food himself. In this way, one who devoutly chants, donates, performs Brahmin worship and homa on Akshaya Navami, his everything becomes renewable, says Brahma.
The donation given on Kartik Shukla Navami is renewable, hence it is called Akshay Navami.
According to all the Puranas like Skanda Puran, Narad Puran etc. Kartik Shukla Paksha is Navami Yugadi date. The donation made in this and the home renewable should be known. The fruit which is obtained by donating for a hundred years in each age, is obtained by donating one day in the era of Yugadi
“एतश्चतस्रस्तिथयो युगाद्या दत्तं हुतं चाक्षयमासु विद्यात् । युगे युगे वर्षशतेन दानं युगादिकाले दिवसेन तत्फलम्॥”
According to Devi Puran, fasting, worship, tarpan and Annadika donation on Kartik Shukla Navmika gives eternal fruit.
Kartik Shukla Navami is also called ‘Dhatri Navami’ (Aonla Navami) and ‘Kushmanda Navami’ (Petha Navami or Sitaphal Navami). According to Skanda Purana, Amla worship on Akshaya Navami brings good luck to women and Petha worship brings peace, life and children in the house.
All the gods reside in the gooseberry tree and this fruit is also very dear to Lord Vishnu. On the day of Akshaya Navami, if it is not possible to worship the gooseberry and sit under the gooseberry tree to prepare and eat food, then on this day gooseberry must be eaten. It is believed that on the day of Kartik Shukla Navami, drops of nectar fall from the gooseberry tree and if a person eats food under this tree, then part of the nectar comes in the food. Due to which man becomes disease free and becomes long. According to Charak Samhita, Maharishi Chyawan again attained youth by eating Amla on Akshaya Navami.
