Small Spiritual Snippet


BHIKSHATANA :: Siva, wandering in the form of a mendicant, is known as Bhaikshatana. Bhikah denotes 'begging for alms' and 'atana' is 'to wander around'. In this incarnation, Siva sought alms in Kasi from Mother Parvati, who is worshipped at this place as Annapurna, the Goddess of food and nourishment.   ---   Lalita Ramakrishnan
