Annadanam – The Sacred Offering of Food

Annadhanam


“In our tradition, serving spiritual seekers and monks has always been of utmost importance. This can be a path in itself. The most beautiful expression of this is the Annadanam – the sacred offering of food.”

- Sadhguru

Daily Annadanam

At the Isha Yoga Center, thousands of sanyasis, brahmacharis, residents, and volunteers have dedicated their lives to working in the various spiritual and social initiatives of Isha to enhance human wellbeing.

Twice a day, Annadanam is offered at the ashram to these sadhakas, and to guests and visitors. Important occasions in your life, such as birthdays, anniversaries or any other day of your choice, can be an opportunity to offer Annadanam and be a part of Sadhguru’s endeavour to spread joy, health and wellbeing. You can also offer Annadanam in memory of a loved one. For special occasions like Mahashivaratri and Guru Purnima, it is Annadanam from generous donors that allows us to serve food to the lakhs of devotees who visit the ashram.

Through a simple act of donating Annadanam, you can touch another life and enrich your own.

************************************



Annadanam has always been a part of the spiritual tradition in Indian culture.We seek your support in continuing this sacred tradition.

We bow down...

We bow down to the hands of the farmers who tended the soil that grew the fruits and vegetables, the grains and spices…may they know how many grateful beings they nourish with their effort…. Blessed are the hands that brought it here, and also blessed are those who donated it out of their love to nourish us… We bow down to the hands that carefully cut it, chopped, pealed and grated it into the softest contours, and the hands that prepared it, day and night, every day, without ever missing a meal, no matter how tired they were or how many people came… And last but not least, bless the hands that served this food, with grace, with love, with the tenderness of mothers and the humility of devotees… We cannot sit in this Biksha Hall even once without shedding tears of gratitude…not having to think, worry, trusting that every day everyone here is offered nourishment of best quality. - Isha Residents
