Realising the efficacy of annadana, Kama joined palms only to Krishna, unwilling to stop Pschooo sounds signifying his delight at quenching his hunger in his heavenly abode.

If by mere pointing to the hungry the place of annadana gives such infinite satisfaction, what would be the effect of giving annadana?

Hence feeding the Kshudarthis is advocated by our sacred scriptures in and out of context. Food alone sustains - 'Pranova annam', so there is no gift higher than annadana; the data lives in eternal bliss, as the fed depart blessing - "Annadatha Sukheebhava". Is there anything existing better than easeful and graceful living? Has not every striving reach this goal? So do your part.

This Devasthanam authority has launched out into this grandiose project of feeding the yatris coming from distant places. It is such a noble, supreme, humanist, unsurpassable gesture that reaches the consummation point by public donations mainly. And Government contribution too. Contact the Temple Officer and deposit your mighty mite to receive munificent benedictions of Lord Maheswar and Mother Gnana Prasunambika soon.
