Akshta in Sanskrit means "unbroken or unhusked".
By tradition and convention husked rice colored with saffron and vermilion is used. There are two kinds of Akshatas:
1) colored rice consecrated by Mantra
2) simple colored grains.
Mantra-infused grains are used in Pujas and special occasions. The latter in a cup is offered as a sign of politeness and auspiciousness; the invited guest takes a few grains and apply them on the forehead.
