Dudh Pauna: Sharad Purnima special By Pratibha Jani

Dudh Pauna: Sharad Purnima special By Pratibha Jani

Dudh Pauna
Dudh Pauna

Sharad purnima brings back again so many good memories in my childhood.  Sharad purnima is also know as Kojagiri Purnima. Many families also enjoy raas garbaa (Traditional gujrati folk dances) as it is considered to have been enjoyed by Lord Krishna and his consort Radha and the gopikas as an all nite dance party.

Two greatest memories are that my Dad used to love the full moon and always wanted to take us up to the terrace of the building to lie down in the full moon at night. And It si also my Mom’s Birthday.

So we used to take the “Dudh Pauna” (Link sugar and flat flaked rice known as poha or pauna.) This recipe is very common and popular part of annual ritual in gujarati families.

We are supposed to eat this Dudh Pauna. after offering it to god and allowing it to sit in the rays of the full moon for a few minutes. The rays of the full moon (indirect rays of the sun) falling on the recipe are to be then consumed by the family members as prasad.

White cool peaceful is to be consumed by your mind body and soul on this nite. This particular recipe is symbolic of the very same. In short summary of the entire ritual.

Most families used to eat this as supper for the night. We of course also would eat a lot of other fun crispy food with it. Like deep fried bhajiyas etc.

Basically whatever you like. Anyway, so as I remember the good happy childhood sharad ponam nites with my parents and siblings, days, I am sharing  this simple quick easy yet healthy and filling soup/porridgy/ recipe especially mant for Sharad Purnima or sharad poonam nite. Hope  you all enjoy with your near and dear and loved ones and look at the moon with love joy happiness and peace in your heart. Ask for all things good in your life and those around you.

Dudh Pauna (flaked pounded rice porridge) – Sharad Purnima special

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup thin flat pounded rice flakes (poha or pauna)
  • 2 cups luke warm milk
  • Saakar or khadi saakar  (rock sugar/sugar candy) to taste – about one/two table spoon
  • garnish almonds,pistachios,cardammom as an optional but best all white.
Method: Wash, rinse the pauna (poha) very well in a large bowl and keep is aside to soften for about fifteen minutes. Now add the like warm milk to it slowly stirring and the rock sugar (khadi saakar or rock sugar  and ) Stir with a fork to keep the flakes from getting clumpy.  

Set aside for a few minutes so all ingredients mix well together. sugar will melt. Now offer to the full moon and there after enjoy the prasad with your dear and near ones. It is also said that best to offer in a silver bowl if possible or in a stainless steel. In case none of these are available plain clear glass is just fine.  Tip: some times some brand of pauna (thick or thin) soak a little more milk than others . In that case just add a little more milk if gets too thick. Usual consistency is the one you/r family like the best.

Happy Sharad Poonam/ Kojagiri

Purnima to all. This also marks the beginning of our special snacks for Guess let us get ready for Yep!!! Diwali.

Sarva pitru Shraddha

Sarva Pitru Shraddha is and can be performed by all for the ancestors who passed on Amavasya, Poornima, on both sides of the family and for those ancestors whose Tithi (Indian calender dates) you do not remember. 

So say for example you remember one or two people’s dates for shraddha but you do not know or do not remember your great grand parents dates of passing, then the last day of shraddha which is know as sarva pittru shraddha is to be used to cook and feed the pancha maha bhoot so all the ancestors can come together just like a big party for the ancestors and enjoy the day at your place. Give you/us blessings for Health,wealth,happiness,peace, progeny and prosperity etc. Remember to cook with lot of love whatever you can and offer. Image

Until next time. Please shre and pass it on to he next generation.

IMPORTANT RECIPE TIPS FOR PITRUPAKSHA.

IMPORTANT RECIPE TIPS FOR PITRUPAKSHA.

Typically and traditionally, we are supposed to cook the recipes on the day that was dear to our ancestors. SO cook what ever was the favorite recipe for the person youare cooking for. That said, we have  whole series of the most commonly used/popularly cooked recipes for shraddha /pitrupaksha on the blog that you can also use to cook. Here we have a series of 7 videos to cook an entire gujrati meal platter. Remember to cook after shower in the morning and try to place your plate before noon time out on the deck backyard or feed the crows, cows,dog and birds before 11.30 or 12 noon.

For placing the plate on the deck for the birds, here’s how the placement works.

At the bottom place the rice then spread daal and shaak on top of this place the pieces of puri, bhajia/dhokla etc and at the end pour the dudhpaak, or rus or any other dessert you ahve cooked/made. Now last but not the least place small amount of chutney /pickle and place the plate on the terrace, deck or backyard of your home. First put a few drops of water on the floor where u r about to place the plate. then mentally invite the ancestors for the feast and ask for their blessings. Next place the plate on the area and circle a few drops of water around the plate. Bow your head and imagine the ancestors are accepting the invitation and coming to enjoy the feast in the form of crows/birds/squirrels etc. and slowly leave the spot so the birds can enjoy the food. Now enjoy the meal with your family in the house. Later in the evening when the plate is empty bring it in.

Typically we have one sweet, one farsaan  and puri, and daal bhaat shaak. Add pickles, chutneys according to whatever was the person’s favorite. It needs to be customized according to your family and the person you are cooking for.

Most importantly it involves cooking Dudhpaak, Kadhi, Puri, and daal bhaat shaak and bhajia.  Feel free to add any other recipes for your ancestors.  and use andy and all recipes you wish from the blog as well.

Shraddha Paksha(Pitrupaksha)

Shraddha Paksha(Pitrupaksha) Pitru shraddha. (The day for remembering our ancestors)

In Hindu culture, Once a year, every year, comes Shraddha Paksha. (The Ancestors’ forthnight). The time to pay respects, perform some religious ceremony and remember our ancestors – Known as Pitrtus, honor their wisdom, sacrifices and their being that have helped us come into this world and be what we are today.  On the day of their particular shraddha day, It is believed that if we cook their favorite food and offer to the Pancha maha bhoot- birds/crows, cows, dogs, give some to children, the temple priest, the poor etc, the ancestors will be fully satisfied where ever they are for the next one year and will have a happy and fulfilling life no matter where they are at this time. They will shower blessings of happiness, health and prosperity upon us and our family of future generations.  Starting tomorrow, for the next 15 days, in Hindu calendar we offer prayers, respects to the dearly departed ancestors of our family. They have done a lot for us during their life time and this is a special day in one year when we remember them all, each on their specific day or departing from this world and from us.

In my family we  typically sing the following prayer/s of

In respect to our ancestors, I am posting these small prayers in audio/video in gujrati to remember them. Recitation of the bhagwad gita chapter 12 and 15 are also considered to be very beneficial for the ancestors as it helps them in achieving peace and happiness in their  abode/next life cycle. Cook their favorite food on this day  and feed all you can and after offering to all, enjoy the meal with your family.

In case you do not remember which day they passed, the last day is a good day to offer your food and prayers. It is know as Sarva Pitru shraddha. (The day for all the ancestors) Sarva pirtushraddha

Om Gum(n) Ganapataye Namah.

Ganpati visarjan is such a huge festival in Mumbai I remember growing up we used to go find a spot to sit on the hghest available home window or terrace or a roof top to get the best view of all the town’s Ganesh idols going for immersion into the beach….Fond memories of the past.

No Chandra darshan(looking at the moon)on Ganesh Chaturthi

No Chandra darshan on Ganesh chaturthi

According to our ancient scritpures( Purana) we should not be looking at the moon on the day or Ganesh chaturthi. The main Ganesh chaturthi day that comes once a year.

The ancient story goes that the moon was laughting at Lord ganesh due to his vehicle the Mouse. So Lord Ganesh cursed the moon by saying that no one will look at the moon on Ganeshchaturthi. Anyone who looks at the moon on the day of ganesh chaturthi will be blamed for something they did not do. The story further goes to say that even Lord Krishna had to bear this curse as he too was accused of stealing the jewel “syamantak Mani(pearl)”  because of looking at the moon on the day of ganesh chaturthi.

Say if you happen to see the moon by mistake on that day, what do we do now? In hindu philosophy and culture one thing I have always noticed is that they always give you solutions to all your problems. There are a few ways to rid yourself of the so called curse. You can :

1. see the moon on 3rd and 5th day as well which is the day before and he day after the day of ganesh chaturthi.
2. Read or listen to the episode that describes the theft of syamantak mani as narrated in  chapters 56 and 57 of tenth skanda of srimad Bhagwad.
3. recite the  following mantra that  with a glass of water in your hand and then drink that water.

Sanskrit:
सिन्ह प्रसेनमवधीत्  सिन्हो जाम्बवता हतः |
सुकुमारक मा रोदीस्तव ह्येष स्यमन्तकः ||
English:
Sinha prasenamavadheet sinho jaambavataa Hatah:|
Sukumarak maa rodistava hyesha syamantaka: ||

Meaning: O handsome prince, it is for this pearl that Sinha killed prasena and Jaambvan killed the sinha, so please do not be upset(cry) Now you and only you have the right to this pearl.

So here’s hoping you don’t see the moon on the day of ganesh chaturthi, but in case you happen to by mistake, please use these tips to counter balance the ill effects of the sight.

shri ganesh
Jai Shri ganesh

Happy Ganesh Chaaturthi.

Happy Rakshaa Bandhan

Happy Raksha Bandhan

This post is to all brothers, sisters and Bhabhis. To the ancient wise men and women who created traditions of love, compassion, trust, protection to keep families together. The strong bond of love between a brother and sister is such a  beautiful tradition of the Indian culture. Happy Raksha Bandhan everyone.

Happy raksha bandhan
Happy raksha bandhan

Once a year on the full moon day in the month of shraavan, it is customary to tie a small thread of a symbollic thread of protection – a bond by sister to brother. It is also customary to change the ceremonial jaanav or janoi thread on this day.

Being in the modern times and in usa, most times and festivities don’t exactly happen at the most auspicious times as it does not always fall on a week end and  as  we all know life these days revolves around week ends only. Yet we try our best to perform them to the closest times possible.

The main thing is to  remember here and to pass on to the next generation is  the true meaning behind the “Raksha bandhan” and to always be there for each other as a brother and sister. It is also important to remember that  when Bhabhi (brother’s wife) comes into the family, many families like mine also tie raksha to bhabhi along with the brothers as a symbol of expecting and exchanging protection love and caring from bhabhi as well as from bhai.  Thereby meaning bhabhi is equally as important as bhai.

When a sister is far away like india/USA/UK, we send the ceremonial symbolic raakhi  threads by mail and now even online. Thanks to the modern technology  we can now send sweets with our raakhis as well.

As I  was growing up, I saw my mother’s and my father’s side of the family,  we tie Raakhi (or raksha- meaning protection from all evil) to brothers and brother’s wives as well. Yet some families tie rakhis to brothers and sisters(each other as a symbol of protecting each other).

Follow whatever  customs / traditions your family/moms created for you but remember to pass it on to the next generation and make sure to explain to them the bond the symbolism and the true meaning behind it all. Not the token exchanged by money but the true meaning of all these traditions and cultural happenings. Enjoy everyone.  Have a wonderful weekend.

So, obviously we all love sweets so much and since it is a day to share with sweets, here is my family favorite carrot Halva I am sharing. Enjoy with your family and friends.

Shraavan Maas Shraavan Somvaar Day 1

I knew it was shraavan meditation time . When I was sitting out on the deck swing this morning and the rain drops started falling on me with the sky full of dark clouds, my heart just wanted to meditate and not get up. (Quiet meditation). Yes it is the first day of  The month of Shraavan has always been one of my favorites as it starts all the religious festivities of the season.

In Gujrati we call it : Shraavan naa saravdaa – શ્રાવણ નાં સરવડા  means shraavan brings light showers.

In Marathi we  have a really short and sweet poem from my childhood school days  that is embedded in my mind since and always reminded by my brother it goes like this: “Shraavan maase harsha maanasi hiravad daate chohi kade, kshanaat padti sar sar dhaaraa kshanaata firuni uuna padey.”  श्रावण मासी हर्ष मानसी हिरावाड दाते चोही कडे क्षणात पडती सर सर धारा क्षणात फिरुनी ऊन पडे. (it means my heart fills happy in the month of Shraavan as there is greenery all around and it would rain showers the one minute and the next we see bright sunshine).

We are also lucky enough to see quite a few rainbows in India (Mumbai) during this season. My of my other favorites nature’s colorful bounty.

So….Most importantly the Mondays Shri Shivji temple visits and offering the milk to the lingam.Tomorrow starts the first shraavan somvaar for this year. 2014. Shraavan Monday.  So if you have read one of my earlier blogs, it is considered very auspicious to offer milk on Mondays of the month of Shraavan and fast if possible.

So let’s get ready for the fasting of Shraavan if we can but if not we can still chant all the hymns, prayers, chants and prayers of our beloved Lord Shiva. Visit the Shri Shivji’s page tab for ore and the fasting recipes on my recipes blog if you are fasting during this month.

Shri Narsingh Prayers and Aarti.श्री नरसिन्ह By Pratibha Jani

Shri Narsingh Prayers and Aarti.श्री नरसिन्ह By Pratibha Jani

Lord Narsingh श्री नरसिन्ह is an incarnation of Lord Vishnu. He is supposed to have taken this form to save his devotee Bhakta Prahlaad(a young boy) and to teach a lesson to the evil demon Hiranyakashyapu. In short The story goes to say that The Lord  took the form “Narsingh Avataar ” which means half Lion, Half man.

The demon had a boon that he would not be killed by a man, or a beast, in morning or at night, and such many other criteria  which  made him almost impossible to be killed. Due to this boon he had grown stronger and when the atrocities of this demon became unbearable the Lord took the form of half man, half lion, during the sunset time and killed the demon in mid air on his thighs,with his nails.  Thus protecting his devotee Prahlaad from being burnt on the fire pillar and also keeping the boon in tact.

Shri Narsingh  Jayanti falls on the day before full moon in the month of Vaishakha (April/May) and the prayers are typically done at the time of sunset.

It is very difficult to find too many prayers and shlokas for Lord Narsingh. I have gathered some shlokas, prayers,chants, stuti and Aarti over the years and am Presenting them here to any one interested.

The shlokas are narrated slowly so beginners and children can follow along. Enjoy, share, and Like if useful.

Until Next time, Pratibha

Early morning short shlokas

Early morning short shlokas

Early morning is a wonderful  time and the best time to do Prayers/meditation. The two hours before sunrise is the best time to do prayers in Hindu culture.

Here are three short beginner shlokas for to start teaching the children as they are around four or five years of age. It will help them learn a lot more than just the shlokas.  It will stay with them thru the student years and follow thru the next stage in life of householders as well.

I was taught this by my grandmother many decades ago and it just stayed with me.

1.   Before getting out of bed in the morning sit up in your bed. Open both your palms together and look at them. as you recite this shloka

कराग्रे वसते लक्ष्मि, करमूले सरस्वती करमध्ये तु गोविन्द प्रभाते कर दर्शनम् ||

Karaagre Vasate Laxmi, Laramoole saraswati, Kara madhye to govinda,Prabhaate kara darshanam.

Meaning:

On the tip of your palms reside Laxmi (the goddess of wealth),On the base of your palms reside the goddess saraswati(Goddess of knowledge /learning). In the center of your palms reside the Lord Govind(Vishnu) Early in the morning pray to these to make your morning a fruitful one.

2.      Before placing your feet on the ground in the morning. Situp with our feet dangling from the bed and look at the goddess mother earth (Floor) resite this shloka

समुद्र वसने देवी पर्वत स्तनमण्डले |  विष्णु पत्नि नमस्तुभ्यं पाद श्पर्शह् क्षमश्वमे ||

Samudra vasane devi, Partava stana mandale, Vishnu patni namastubhyum,Paada sprashah Kshamashvamey.

Meaning: -Oh mother goddess(Earth), one who wears the ocean as her wardrobe, Holds mountains to her heart, to that consort(wife) of Lord Vishnu, I bow to please forgive me for placing my feet upon your being. (In other words, ask forgiveness for putting your burden on the earth and thank for the help.)  These thoughts and prayers make one and humble person and teaches us to be respectful to every little favors we have from Mother nature. It also teaches us to appreciate what we always take for granted.

3.      stand on your two feet, bring your palms in prayer pose, close your eyes and pray to the creator of the universe with this shloka.

वसुदेवसुतं देवं कनस चाणूर मर्दनम् | देवकी परमानन्दं , कृष्णं वन्दे जगत् गुरुं ||

Vasudevasutum Devam, Kansa chaanura mardanam, Devaki paramaanandam,krishnam vande jagat gurum.

Meaning:  To the Son of Vasudev , to the one who killed evil persons such as Kansa and Chaanura, the one who brought ultimate happiness to Devaki, to that Lord and Guru (teacher) of the universe Krishna/Govinda/Vishnu, I bow with utmost respect.  Saying so, have a positive intention for a fruitful,successful and a wonderful day ahead.

 Sources : Many and unknown just like the entire sanskrit and Hindu culture and religion. These shlokas are from ancient Hindu culture/knowledge and wisdom. Many of them are used by various religious organizations as their own. However all the shlokas and the knowledge itself is from thousands of years before and is not owned by any one organization/ institution/culture.

Not a regular common practice for daily prayers but it is followed for special occasions. For taking the kind of shankha it is beneficial to have a shankha that is “dakshin Varti” which means circling towards the south(opening) is best.  Any size you can find is fine.

Now take the sankha and dip it in the water of the kalash and take the water into the shankha. take a couple leaves of tulsi if you have , if not then some plain rice or few petals of flower are also fine. Now take this shankha and place it in a copper plate that is called Tarbhaanu.

Tarbhaanu(Copper plate for puja)
Tarbhaanu(Copper plate for puja)

a stainless steel plate is also ok.

Join your hands in prayer and say the following shloka to bring the shankha as part of the ceremony. Shankha is considered to have born from the ocean so invite Lord Vishnu and Shankha to the special occasion.

video and the written format of the shloka is as below
