Lord Shiva had asked alms to mother Annapurna
It is believed that when water and grain started to run out on the earth, there was an outcry everywhere. Then humans worshiped Lord Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva to get rid of the problem of food. Shiva then toured the earth and after this Mata Parvati created Annapurna form and Lord Shiva created the form of a monk.
Lord Shiva took alms from Mata Annapurna and distributed it to the people settled on earth. Since then humans along with all the Gods also started worshiping the mother Annapurna. The day Mother Annapurna appeared, it was the full moon of Margashirsha month. That is why Annapurna Jayanti is celebrated on Margashirsha Purnima. On this day, food donation has special significance.
Mata Annapurna is the goddess of food. Therefore, on this day the kitchen should be kept clean and the house should be purified by sprinkling the Ganges water.
After this, worship the cooking stove by burning turmeric, kumkum, rice, flowers, incense and lamps.
After this, worship Goddess Parvati and Lord Shankarji in the kitchen as well.
Worshiping the mother Annapurna in the kitchen itself with the above method, pray that, O mother, there should always be food in our family.
After worshiping, definitely feed the food made in your home to the poor.
