Anna Praashan Pujan
Do you know how to do the child's Annaprasannam ritual?Our descendants are the ones who continue our dynasty. They need a healthy body if they want to reap the rewards of life's many advantages. Giving children wholesome meals promotes good health. Above all else, if the kids receive God's grace, they won't contract any fatal illnesses. The practise of feeding a newborn child their first solid food after birth with God's blessings is known as "annaprasannam." This is referred to as a rice feeding ceremony in Tamil. Learn how to carry out this Annaprasannam ceremony here.
When a kid is given their first solid food at six months old during the Annaprasannam celebration, it is important to follow the same rules as previous auspicious rites. In the best months following the 8th, 9th, or 12th month of the child's birth, excepting Adi and Margazhi months, those who cannot do it in the sixth month of the child's birth may do it. Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday are the best days to perform Ashwini, Mrigaseersham, Punarvasu, Pusam, Uttaradam, Hastam, Chitrai, Swadi, Anusham, Thiruvonam, Avitam, Satayam, Uttaratathi, and Revathi. Friday is best performed in the signs of Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Virgo, Libra, Sagittarius, Capricorn, and Aquarius. Vedic Vedics are also capable of performing this rite.
Rice-based payasam is the ideal dish to serve at a baby shower. It is best if the bowl and spoon used to serve this payasam are made of silver. Payasam should be made so that it is easily digestible for the infant. When the payasam is prepared, pour it into a silver dish and combine it with the honey, Ganges water, tulsi leaves, and ghee.
Take some payasam in a silver spoon and feed it to the child's mother at the appropriate time after naming the child's birth caste, rasi, and nakshatra, singing the mantras for the Navagrahas, and saying his or her name. The child's father and other family members may also feed the infant. Do not force feed a youngster if they just want a few spoonfuls to eat.
Those who attend these gatherings should give the youngster some silverware. Those who are unable to do this can give the youngster new clothing instead. The physical health of the infant is improved by feeding him or her food infused with therapeutic and spiritual qualities, such as holy river Ganga water, Tulsi, and honey, and with the Lord's blessings, the child lives a long and disease-free life.
