Know more about different muhurats in 2019: Muhurat 2019

Food intake evolves with age and understanding and is the basis of good health. For a newborn baby's evolution to an infant, food should also be given accordingly. Hence to start with a solid food as the first food is not only rejoicing for parents, family, elders but also for the baby infant. This jubilation filled sanskar with all its blessings for the child eating its first solid food is called annaprashan muhurat.

What Is Annaprashan Ceremony?

The ceremony conducted to mark the child's first food intake is called annaprashan ceremony. Anna is known as food and prashan is the presenting or offering. The first solid food offering made to the child starts with annaprashan ceremony for a healthy body to relish the beauty of life and withstand the wear and tear of it. Moreover, Annaprashan is known in various names in different states of India and followed religiously.

Why Is Annaprashan Ceremony Needed?

When the baby infant consumes his first solid food, blessings of God, parents, elders and all the five elements of nature is essential. Like the five elements which are basic for this world to exist, food is equally important and the child should never be deprived of it. This annaprashan muhurat ceremony makes this possible for the child to intake all the blessings and nourishment with all the wishes and prayers of those present along with their ancestors and God for a healthy living. Consuming solid food clears any impurities from the mother's womb, hereby making this annaprashan ceremony equally important.

What Is Annaprashan Muhurat And How It Is Calculated?

Annaprashan muhurat is the meticulous time during which the child is fed with the first solid food of its life. The horoscope or birth chart of the child along with his gender and age are the deciding factors for fixing the muhurat for annaprashan. The panchang or Hindu calendar with its 5 elements also determine the muhurat. They include:

  • Vaar: It determines the day of the week on which the Annaprashan ceremony should be conducted. Seven days comprise of a week.
  • Tithi: Tithi means date, which are 30 in Lunar month. There are two pakshas in a month, and each paksha consists of 15 dates.
  • Nakshatra: Nakshatra is a constellation or group of 27 stars forming an imaginary pattern or outline on the celestial sphere.
  • Yoga: In Vedic culture, the yoga of the child is determined by the horoscope and the panchang.
  • Karana: Half of a tithi is called Karana, which are 60 in a month.

When And Where Is Annaprashan Ceremony Performed?

The annaprashan ceremony should be performed strictly before the 1st birthday of the infant. This is because by then, the newborn infant will become a growing child. It is commonly conducted on the 5th and 7th month for a girl infant and 6 and 8th month for a boy infant. This is because odd numbers favor girls and even number favor boys in Vedic literature. Also, the time of annaprashan depends on the child's health, with growing teeth showing strong digestive tract. It is mostly conducted in temples and other sacred places as per the convenience of the parents and elders.

How Is It Performed?

Kheer or payasam is served as the first meal for the child. Both are mashed rice with natural sweeteners like honey and sweetened milk. Also, there is a ritual of placing certain objects before the child where everyone waits eagerly to find what the child picks first. Depending on the things like books, pen, clay, food, jewelry the basic nature of the child is assumed by the parents. Annaprashan ceremony ends with happiness for all, especially the child to have its first food.
