ANNADANAM - IMPORTANCE OF FOOD DONATION IN HINDU RELIGION

There is no better puja and ritual in Hindu religion than
feeding a hungry living being. Annadanam is Mahadanam or the greatest donation
in Hindu religion and is an essential part of Sanatana Dharma tradition. The
food donation is not limited to feeding a human being but it encompasses all
living beings. There are numerous stories in Hindu scriptures that extol the
glory of Annadanam – prominent being Goddess Parvati appearing as Goddess
Annapurnaeshwari and feeding Shiva. Another instant is that Karna taking rebirth
as he had performed all types of donation except food donation.

A mistake many Hindus make while performing Annadanam is to
feed only priests. This is wrong. Annadanam should be offered to all living
being – there should not be any consideration of position, authority, religion
or caste or nationality.

In Hinduism, Annadanam is performed for redemption of sins,
to attain piety, to get speedy recovery from illness and also to attain
moksha.

There is a Hindu belief that sins committed in previous
birth follows a person in successive births – Annadanam is performed to put an
end to this.
The glory of family, popularity of institution, holiness of
a temple increases with each Annadanam.
Above all we become good human beings when we are willing
to share our food with one who is hungry.

Namaste Induji,

Annandanam should be conducted in abundance as told by Kula Guru Vashishta muni.Always maintain  equal respect for all the people who take part in Annadanam and do not differentiate people based on character,status etc.Annam should be distributed equally to all.All sections of people should be invited and everybody should be equally respected.This shows our ancient Bharath varsh culture.

I have always loved this story. The carpenter I hired to help me restore an old farmhouse had just finished a rough first day on the job. A flat tire made him lose an hour of work, his electric saw quit, and now his ancient pickup truck refused…

What would you do if your mum leaves when you’re 11, your dad leaves you at 13, you then lived with your grandma who dies when you’re 16, and you then marry a man who beats you for the next 16 years until you attempt suicide and fail?



If you are Tina Turner, you go on to start a new life, sell 200 million records and break the Guinness Book of Records for selling the most concert tickets of any solo performer in history.



Tina’s mother ran away when Tina was 11, to escape… Continue
