The perennial food giver - SWARNA ANNAPOORANI
How important is food to the good health of the human body and mind? Food, eaten fresh, in the correct measure and properly cooked is the foundation of good health. So can there be a shrine to health without Annapoorani's presence?
Vallalar is here as is Shirdi Sai Baba. "How can Annapoorani not be here as well," the Swamigal argues.
Having himself grown up on food donated by the various households in which his mother was a domestic help, Swamigal makes it a point to feed at least 50 people in the peedam every day. As a child, he yearned to see the day when he would be able to feed someone, and that yearning is satisfied herein. Along with the annadhaanam, he offers the first 50 persons a dakshanai of one rupee with the blessings of abundance. Many have seen the turn of their fortunes after this lucky coin has come their way. This is the benediction of Goddess Swarna Annapoorani.
