Daily Annadaan at Haridwar, Kumbh Mela: 16 Apr 2021

Following Mohanji’s guidance, we will be organising regular Annadaan in Haridwar from 14th – 27th April.
On 16th Apr, poori sabji alongwith a dakshina was given to 370 sadhus in the evening.
Kumbh Mela started in Haridwar on 14th Apr and will end on 27th April ( Chaitra Purnima). Kumbh Mela is a major Hindu festival and pilgrimage which is celebrated in a cycle of 12 years at four holy river-banks: Prayagraj (Ganges-Yamuna Sarasvati rivers confluence), Haridwar (Ganges), Nashik (Godavari), and Ujjain (Shipra).It is an extravaganza that draws millions of devotees from India and around the world, and is the world’s largest pilgrimage and religious gathering for Hindus.
The practice of Daan during Kumbh holds great significance. Here, both the donator and the receiver of alms are benefitted. Therefore, donation during Kumbh is considered greater than relinquishment. Annadaan (donating food) Vastra Daan (donating of clothes) has immense significance.
