MANGALAGIRI

The Bhaktakoti started worshipping him with honey as Naivedya, in the Kritayuga. With the passage of time, the practice changed itself into milk in the Tretayuga, ghee in the Dwaparayuga and Panaka in the Kaliyuga, may be due to availability of the materials, or perhaps due to adulteration of sentiments due to Kala Prabhava. Anyhow, the Pankapuja - the ritual of offering of the beverage made of jaggery and water as Naivedya has become a regular practice and it is offered with utmost devotion, also marks the redemption of vows taken by the adorers, whenever they were caught in the meshes of life taking problems, or worries knocking them down. And lo! the Lord too is immensely pleased to accept the Panakapuja and considers it as the best. And what is more, nothing pleases him more than this. He receives it whole-heartedly and drinks to his contentment by a peculiar gurgling sound, while pouring the beverage into his mouth. As it marks his samtripti, the priest stops pouring, and gives back the rest of the quantity made as Prasad, which is distributed among the visiting bhaktas assembled. This is the star attraction of this sacred shrine.
