Relationship between Anna (Food) and Human

Food is essential for every living being on earth. It is not only a fact but also true that what we eat impacts our body and mind. It is also said that “जैसा खाये अन्न-वैसा होये मन”. In scriptures, there are 3 types of food: Satvik, Rajsik and Tamsik. As we can conclude with the help of name that Satvik food includes Ghee, green vegetables, Rajsik food includes garlic-onion and spicy-fried food, whereas Tamsik food includes meat or non-vegetarian food. To live a healthy and long life, it is advisable to eat sattvic (purest form) food.

Annaprashan Samskar

It is an important samskar among other 16 Samskaras. Annaprashan word is taken from Sanskrit word, which means “to feed”. A child is a dependant on his mother at least till he turns 6 months in age. He only can take the milk of his mother till that age. After that, it is necessary to provide solid food. Nature also suggests the same as during this phase, the teeth of the child also start coming out of his gums.

In Annaprashan Samskar, food like curd, honey, ghee and rice are given to the child. Apart from this, during pregnancy of the child's mother, the defects of contaminated food are found in the body of the child, and for the good nutrition of the child, this samskar is also done.

Muhurat for Annaprashan

Annaprashan is an auspicious and important ritual. It is in tradition to check the auspicious time i.e. Muhurta before every good work in Hindu religion. That is why an auspicious muhurat is chosen for Annaprashan Samskar, so that this samskar can be performed successfully with the blessings of everyone. It would be advisable to consult with an astrologer or experienced person to find out Muhurat.

Annaprashan Samskar for Boys and Girls

Yagyavalkya and Manu also mentioned in their creations that Annaprashan of boys should be performed in the even months like 6, 8, 10, 12 and in odd months like 5, 7, 9, 11 for girls.

Method for Annaprashan Ceremony

Generally, five vessels of silver are bought for the Annaprashan ceremony. In different patra (vessels) semolina or rice kheer, honey, ghee and basil leaves and Ganga water is placed. These are next, worshipped using Roli and sandalwood.

Annaprashan is the process of feeding food, especially for the first time to a child. Parents worship the Goddess Annapurna along with the child to receive the blessings of Goddess Annapurna. They offer rice kheer to God and then chant the Annaprashan Mantra mentioned below:

“शिवौ ते स्तां व्रीहियवावबलासावदोमधौ।एतौ यक्ष्मं वि बाधेते एतौ मुंचतो अंहसः”

Points to Remember while performing Annaprashan Samskar are:

  • Annaprashan Samskar should be done in Shukla Paksha.
  • It should not be done in tithis like Rikta and Nanda, Dwadashi and Saptami/Ashtami.
  • It should be kept in mind that neither there should be any planet in the 10th house nor any malefic aspect on it in Lagna Kundali.
  • Six months is age suitable for Annaprashan, before which we should not give solid food to the child as it would be harmful to its health.
  • Kheer made of rice or semolina is easy to digest, hence it is good for the child and offered first to child as “Anna”
  • Along with that, it should be offered to Gods.
  • Feeding the child in a silver vessel ensures that the child will be fit physically and mentally.
  • The child should not face towards south direction while eating Anna.

Effects of food on our Lives

It is said in scriptures that what we eat affects our mind and thoughts. There is also mythology behind it:

Bhism Pitamah, who was lying on the bed of arrows during the war of Mahabharat, and giving a message to Pandavas suddenly stopped speaking as Draupadi started laughing. When Bhishma asked for the reason for her laugh, Draupadi said that today you preach the religion, but when I was being insulted in an assembly, then where did this religion go and why didn't you teach Duryodhana this religion? Seeing this paradox, I started laughing.

Bhishma said on this, 'O Draupadi, you are right to say this, but at that time I used to eat food (Anna) provided by Duryodhana. The food he offered had his thought, feelings and negativity. By consuming it, my blood, intellect and mind had become the same. But after Arjun's arrows made all the contaminated blood drown into the soil, I am thinking and speaking of religion and justice.

The above story tells about the effects of Anna on our body-mind. Hence, we must eat Satvik food so that your heart can stay pure. Food is life, every living creature needs food. The farmer who grows food is called ”Annadata”. Therefore, it is not only helpful in physical strength and health but also in the development of good values in a boy/girl. This is the purpose of Annaprashan Samskara.
