Hindu culture is full of different samskaras. Annaprashan Puja is one such important ceremony. The occasion when a baby consumes food for the first time is celebrated as Annaprashan Ceremony. It is a time of celebration where friends and family are invited to be a part of this joyous occasion. The process is also known as the 'First Rice Eating Ceremony'. It is known by different names like 'Mukhe Bhaat', 'Choroonu', and 'Bhaatkhulai'. It is performed on even days for boys and odd days for girls.
This Rice feeding ceremony is performed with the belief that it will remove any inadequacies that may have been present. But this will happen only after it is carried out according to the proper Vedic method. Although the baby has been drinking milk, this ceremony is important as it is the first time he will consume solid food. The age is an important aspect to be looked into. This Puja has to be done between the ages of six to seven. If performed earlier, his body might not be able to digest it and delaying it too much might affect the health of the child.
