Now, cover the mouth of the glass with the palm of your right hand. Keep your left hand on top of your right hand, and chant the following mantras –

ॐ नमो वासुदेवाय नमः
om namo vasudevaya namah

ॐ नमो विष्णुदेवाय नमः

om namo vishnudevaya namah 

ॐ श्री श्री लक्ष्मीदेवीये नमः

om shree shree lakshmi deviye namah 

 Now slowly pour little water from the glass into the small bowl in front of the lamp while chanting the mantra. 

ॐ नमो भगवते वासुदेवाय।

Om namo bhagwate vasudevay

Now take a handful of rice and place it in a bowl. Now take few grains of rice with the ring finger and thumb of your right hand and continue offering the rice by putting  the rice offer . Then chant the following mantra :

ॐ श्री लक्ष्मीसमेता नारायणा नमः 
om shree lakshmisametha narayana namah

 Then shower the base of the lamp with the rice in your right hand. Repeat this ritual until all the rice in the bowl is over. After that, shower the photo of Lord Vishnu and Devi Mahalakshmi with flowers while chanting :

ॐ नमो नारायणा

om namo narayanaya

 Then light some camphor and pray sincerely to God that this Akshaya Tritiya should bring your family happiness and success. Then take the rice from the plate below the lamp, and cook it. This cooked rice should be distributed as prasad among the family members.

 लक्ष्मीकान्तं कमलनयनं योगिभिर्ध्यानगम्यम्

 वन्दे विष्णुं भवभयहरं सर्वलोकैकनाथम् ॥

Sun and Moon are astrologically believed to be at their most exalted positions on Akshaya Tritiya and hence offers the perfect conditions for your wealth and power. It is the best day to go for new investments like Fixed Deposits in Banks, Post Office Savings Schemes, Insurance Policies, Share Market investments, Mutual Funds etc and to start new ventures.
