Annadanam ( Feed the Needy)

Annadanam – Feed the hungry

Gaja duraga Sahasram | Gokulam koti danam ||
Kanaka Rajatha patram | Methini sagarantham ||
Upaya kula vishuttam | Koti kanya  pradanam ||
Nahi nahi bahu danam| Annadanam samanam ||

Meaning:   Even if one gifts 1000 elephants, horses or gifts 10 million cows or any number of vessels of silver and gold , gifts the entire land till sea, offering the entire services of the clan , helps in the marriage of 10 million women, all this is never never equal to Annadanam(Poor Feeding).

As the Taithreeya Upanishad “Annam Brahma éva bhavati” – Food is verify the Brahman (Lord). In sanskrit “anna” means “food”  and “dana” means “donation” or “gift”, so annadanam means “donating food”. Loka Kshema Yagna trust has been regularly conducting Annadanams during Maha Nava Chandi Homam and during various other special occasions. We look forward to the support of devotees in carrying out this noble cause of feeding the poor and the hungry. We perform Annadanam at various locations in Chennai,Thiruvallur and Villupuram on a weekly basis by distributing food packets.
