INR 6,901


Participate in Goddess Annapurna Devi Mahapuja on 8th December 2022 on the auspicious occasion of Annapurana Jayanti for showing gratitude to the Goddesses of Food and Plentitude.

Goddess Annapurna Devi is the Goddess of food and nourishment. Prayers to Her bring blessings of support, stability, nourishment and plenitude in the family. Anna means food and Purna means full or complete. Goddess Annapurna Devi is an incarnation of Goddess Parvati, the Divine consort of Lord Shiva. With the blessings of Goddess Annapurna Devi there is never scarcity of anything material in the devotee’s life. Goddess Annapurna Devi blesses Her devotees with nourishment not only for the physical self but Her blessings also nourish spiritual self with knowledge, wisdom and enlightenment. She is described as a youthful goddess having red complexion with a face round like the full moon, three eyes, high breasts, and four hands. The lower left hand is depicted as holding a vessel full of delicious porridge and the right hand with a golden ladle adorned with various jewels. The other two hands depict the Abhaya and Varada poses. She is traditionally prayed to before partaking any food as under:

Oṃ Annapūrṇe sadāpūrṇe Śaṇkara prāṇa vallabhe jñāna vairāgya siddhyartham bhikṣām dehī ca pārvatī.

Oh Annapurna, who is forever complete, more beloved to Lord Shiva than life. Oh Parvati give me the alms of Your grace to awaken within me spiritual knowledge, inner freedom, prosperity, and spiritual attainment.

In some depictions, Shiva is shown standing to her right with a begging bowl, begging her for alms. Shiva in Annapoorna Stotra described the deity always holding a scripture, akshamala and opener of doors of Moksha in her hands in place of vessel and ladle, indicating his prayer to Annapoorna being spiritual perfection rather than food.

Annadana, the donation of food, is highly praised in Hinduism. The importance of Annadana is prescribed in the Vishnu Dharamottara, Agni Purana, Padma Purana, Kurma Purana, Nandi Purana, and Vayu Purana. The Sri Annapurna Ashtakam composed by Shankaracharya is chanted by several devout Hindus around the world as a prayer for nourishment, wisdom, and renunciation. This is the perfect day to perform, Ann daan, the donation of food to the needy. On this day a donation of a food hamper with the below items sufficient for 1 month for a family of 4 members per yajaman(participant) will be made to a needy family.
