According to Annaprashan Muhurat 2021, out of all the sixteen rites mentioned in Hindu scriptures, Annaprashan Sanskar is considered the seventh most important Sanskar. During this ceremony, the child is offered solid foods such as rice other than his/her mother’s milk for the first time ever under proper administration according to Hindu customs.

It is believed that the physical and mental development of the child before the Annaprashan Ceremony depends only on the milk provided by the mother. However after this rite is performed, their overall development depends majorly on solids. This is why this ritual is performed for the first time after birth with great enthusiasm with an objective of introducing the child to grains, solid foods and cereals.

Calculating Annaprashan Sanskar Muhurat 2021

To perform Annaprashan Sanskar in 2021, a priest or an expert thoroughly assesses the birth chart of the child as well as the placement of nakshatras and planets and calculates an auspicious muhurat to perform the ceremony. This is known as Annaprashan Sanskar Muhurat. According to popular beliefs, the Annaprashan Sanskar Muhurat of a child should be done within the six months of his/her birth.

As per Hinduism, the baby is fed only sattvic and nutritious food for the first time. It is said that this sattvic food offers the child a healthy life and helps him/her develop physically and mentally while eliminating every disease and illness. Everyone present during the Annaprashan Sanskar Ceremony wishes the child a good and healthy life, strength and intelligence and offers him/her their blessings.

Significance of Annaprashan Muhurat 2021

According to the Hindu scriptures, it is considered necessary to perform every significant task or ceremony during an auspicious muhurat for fruitful results. In the same way, Annaprashan Ceremony should also be performed during a special muhurat after consulting either an astrologer or priest, as it is believed that good qualities are generated in the children if such rites are carried out under a shubh muhurat.

Also, this ceremony helps purify all the elements that went into the stomach of the children before birth and enables a child to lead a healthy life. It has been observed that when the child is in the womb, the mother can sometimes consume food which can prove to be harmful for her unborn child. In such a situation, these rites are very effective in keeping the children away from all the demerits inherited from their mother.

Benefits of Annaprashan Sanskar 2021

Food is considered as the most important basis of every human life. It helps a person to develop physically and mentally. It is mentioned in the scriptures that consuming a good and nutritious diet helps to purify the body and soul from within. This is the reason why through the Annaprashan Sanskar or Rice Eating Ceremony, the importance of pure food has been highlighted in Hinduism. In rites for Annaprashan Sanskar, the parents offer their prayers to Maa Annapurna, the Goddess of Food, and wish for good health and prosperity for their child.

  • There is a popular saying in India, "The Food You Eat Is Reflected In Your Nature" This means that food you consume not only nourishes the body, but also nourishes the mind and intellect of a man.
  • A child becomes strong and powerful by performing Annaprashan Ceremony rites on auspicious Annaprashan Dates in 2021.
  • It is believed that from the sixth and seventh month after a child is born, his/her teeth start coming out, which makes the baby’s digestive process strong. Hence, if the baby is fed solid food apart from his/her mother’s milk, the mind and body of a child grows well.
  • This ritual holds high importance from a scientific point of view as well. During pregnancy, the infant inside the womb of the mother consumes nutrients that can prove to be harmful for him/her. In such a situation, Annaprashan Ceremony is performed to cleanse the child’s body and offer good food.

Annaprashan Sanskar 2021: Where and How To Perform?

As per the scriptures, Annaprashan Ceremony must be performed within the six months after the birth of the child. However, in relation to both boys and girls, Hindu Panchang voices out some differences in regard with the time. In this case, let us now know when and how this Sanskar is performed:

  • As per the beliefs, it is considered appropriate to perform the Annaprashan of the male child in the sixth or eighth month after his birth. On the other hand, the Annaprashan of the female child should be performed in the odd month, i.e. fifth or seventh month after her birth.
  • Annaprashan rites are usually performed at home, or at a temple or any other religious place. For this, the parents can consult an astrologer or priest and perform this ceremony as per their family traditions.
  • During this ritual, the baby is firstly offered Kheer or Sweetened Rice Pudding or any other sattvic solids according to the local and familial tradition.
  • The auspicious Muhurat for Annaprashan Sanskar is calculated by assessing auspicious dates and nakshatras according to the birth chart of the child. At the same time, some natives organize this ceremony on any auspicious date such as Ashtami or Navami during Navratri as per their traditional familial customs

This is why several significant things are kept in mind when performing this rite:

  • On this day, the baby is properly bathed and dressed in new and clean clothes. Many people dress their child in their cultural attires such as dhoti-kurta or lehenga-choli, etc.
  • On the day of the Annaprashan Ceremony in 2021, a sacred yagna and havan is organized for the child at home or any other religious place.

  • During this time, the deities are venerated during the auspicious muhurat, after which the elders of the household, parents and other relatives feed the child homemade Kheer or rice pudding with a silver spoon.

Mythological Legend Behind Annaprashan Ceremony

Food provides energy and power to a human being. You will find several mentions highlighting the importance of food in many mythological legends as well. One of them is related to Mahabharata. According to that mythological legend, during the ongoing war of Mahabharata, when Bhishma Pitamah was lying on the bed of arrows and breathing his last breath, all the Pandavas used to visit him daily to listen to his sermons. The Pandavas used to listen to many stories related to Dharma from Pitamah.

In the same light, while he was preaching life lessons to the Pandavas, all of a sudden Draupadi started laughing after listening to him. Everyone was shocked to see Draupadi laughing like this, in the meantime Pitamah asked Draupadi the reason for her laughter. Draupadi then replied, ‘Pitamah, all these lessons and preachings about Dharma and Knowledge sounds good but where was it when I was being violated by the Kauravas in front of the entire assembly during the Cheer Haran? Why didn’t you reach all these lessons at that time in the assembly? I started laughing just by remembering the same thing.'

Listening to Draupadi, Bhishma Pitamah said, 'Daughter! I was consuming the food provided by the Kauravas at that time. Therefore, just like Duryodhana with his vicious nature, my mind and heart got contaminated and affected. But Arjuna's arrows in the battlefield shed all of the malicious blood running inside my body. After being purified, my mind, heart and soul are pure. This is why I am talking about Dharma.”
