Why we offer a coconut


Why we offer a coconutCoconut is used as an offering to the Gods as it represents the head of a man and is used instead of the ancient tradition of Narabali or human sacrifice. In India it is one of the most common offerings in a temple. It is also offered on occasions like weddings, festivals, the use of a new vehicle, bridge, house etc. It is offered in the sacrificial fire whilst performing homa. The coconut is broken and placed before the Lord. It is later distributed as prasada.

The fibre covering of the dried coconut is removed except for a tuft on the top. The marks on the coconut make it look like the head of a human being. The coconut is broken, symbolizing the breaking of the ego. The juice within, representing the inner tendencies (vaasanas) is offered along with the white kernel - the mind, to the Lord.

A mind thus purified by the touch of the Lord is used as prasada (a holy gift). In the traditional abhisheka ritual done in all temples and many homes, several materials are poured over the deity like milk, curd, honey, tender coconut water, sandal paste, holy ash etc. Each material has a specific significance of bestowing certain benefits on worshippers. Tender coconut water is used in abhisheka rituals since it is believed to bestow spiritual growth on the seeker.

The coconut also symbolizes selfless service. Every part of the tree -the trunk, leaves, fruit, coir etc. is used in innumerable ways like thatches, mats, tasty dishes, oil, soap etc. It takes in even salty water from the earth and converts it into sweet nutritive water that is especially beneficial for healthy growth and quick recovery from diseases. It is used in the preparation of many ayurvedic medicines and in other alternative medicinal systems.

The marks on the coconut are even thought to represent the three-eyed Lord Shiva and therefore it is considered to be a means to fulfill our desires.

  • I think they deserve respect

    I purchased many Rudraksha from Rudra Center and have had nothing but good service and top quality. The prices are competitive and if a person wants a cheaper price then need to buy wholesale in quantity. Every business has lots of costs and overheads that have to be included in the price. The smaller the business the smaller the overheads. Rudra Center is a bigger than most business (Rudraksha) and have much higher overheads. And you get bigger in business and long lasting through honesty. I think they deserve respect, and recognition for their expertise and honesty. Richard Shaw-Brown close
