Annapurni- Goddess of Nourishment

In India, we strongly believe that food should not be wasted because it is a blessing from our Goddess- 'Annapurni' where Anna means food and grains. Purna means full, complete and perfect.

In some homes, Goddess Annapurni (identified by the ladle in both hands, ready to feed) is worshiped during the festivals.

The idol of Annapurni is placed in a silver container with silver coins and uncooked rice. Offering of flowers, fruits and sweets is made to the idol, lamp and incense sticks are lighted. Prayers are offered before serving food to the guests.
