Request for Annadhanam Sign-up at Parashakthi Temple

Every Saturday after Abhisekham for Sri Venkateshwara devotees are served prasadam after offering it to the Lord. Please take advantage of the opportunity to make Annadhanam. Please email annamfortemple@gmail.com to find out about the available dates.

The word Annadhanam in Sanskrit literally means offering or sharing food. The importance of food is stressed in ancient scriptures including Vedas and Upanishads. The Dharma Sastra regards the guest as a ‘deity’ (Athithi Devo Bhava).This is in keeping with the worldwide belief among ancient society that god may move upon the earth in human guise and that one should therefore regard fellow beings with almost courtesy, respect and hospitality, including the offering of food. Annadhanam is conducted with this principle in mind.

What is required:

• Food for approximately 75 people.

• Need to deliver by 11 am. (VERY IMPORTANT)

• Please e-mail for information annamfortemple@gmail.com
