Ma Annapurna Namavali




Annapurna Devi is the goddess who provides food for all the living beings in the earth. The name Annapurna itself indicates as the giver of sufficient food. Annapurna is an important goddess, since through her blessings only, we are able to eat food and sustain in this world. She is an incarnation of Mata Parvati, the consort of Lord Shiva. The Annapurna Sahasranam praises her glory and describes her various names.

Kashi Viswanath Temple in Varanasi is the famous temple for goddess Annapurna and daily thousands of devotees come to this place to worship the divine goddess and to get her blessings. Akshaya Tritiya Festival is celebrated considering as the birthday of the goddess Annapurna, and people purchase golden jewellery and start new ventures on that day. Annapurna once offered food to Lord Shiva in order to make him to realize that she is the ultimate giver of the food to the entire UNIVERSE.

The Hindu Scriptures describe the features of Annapoorna as a beautiful goddess with golden coloured body and a shining face. In one hand, she holds the food pot, and in another hand, she offers food to her devotees. She is seated on a golden throne.

She is also mentioned in divine texts as the giver of knowledge, wisdom, courage, spiritual energy and strength in mind and in body. Devi Bhagavata and Skanda Purana praise her glory and mention her importance.

Food is considered as the most important thing for the living beings in this world. Without food, no one could survive in this world. Hence it is a must for us to pray to goddess Annapurna Devi and we must thank her for giving sufficient food to us. She has to be worshipped on a daily basis especially before taking our food. The importance of Annadhanam is mentioned in various Puranas, and Lord Krishna also tells in his Bhagavat gita about the importance of food donation, and asks us to provide food to all the living beings in the world.

The Annapurna Stotra composed by Adi Shankaracharya is recited by Hindus throughout the world as a thanks giving act to Mata Annapurna for giving food to us in plenty.
