  Annapurna Puja
Events of Bengal
 
 
ĎAnnapurna Puja is another important festival of Bengal. Goddess Annapurna is the Goddess of plenty. It is believed that Goddess Annapurna's barn is never empty. Anna’ means food grains. ‘Purna’ means full, absolute and perfect. Annapurna is the one who grants sustenance to everyone. Goddess Annapurna is worshipped with great devotion. She is the supreme goddess of Kasi. ‘K’ means the reason, ‘a’ means the manifestation of consciousness, ‘s’ means tranquility and ‘i’ is the physical body..
 
  Kasi is the place which helps the physical body to manifest consciousness to its highest level. Even Lord Shiva had begged alms from Goddess Annapurna. She is the supreme energy of Lord Shiva for achieving perfection in knowledge and renunciation. Annapurna is another form of Goddess Parvati who grants nourishment. She is the life force of Shiva. He is incomplete without Goddess Annapurna. To attain perfection in wisdom and renunciation, Shiva seeks her nourishment.  
 
Goddess Annapurna teaches us the art of giving. Generosity and renunciation are her strengths. Through renunciation she teaches equality to all. Mother Annapurna nurtures us each day by giving us food as well as sustaining our lives in so many ways. Goddess Annapurna is thanked by her devootees for her generosity and kindness. Ardent devotees rejoice to thank the Mother Divine from the deepest core of their hearts.
 
 
In the Annapurna stotram there are 1000 names of Annapurna Devi, which are chanted at the time of ‘Annapurna puja’, which reverberates with different sounds. Annapurna puja is performed with great energy and merriment. Women remain active with ‘puja’ preparations. Men are also found working hard to organise the ceremony. It is said to be the puja of the women folk, because each woman is the ‘annapurna’ in their own family. And the divine goddess blesses them as they can look after their family with full vitality.
