Paramānnam – Sacred Consecrated Food Offering To Bhagavan Nithyanandeshwara Paramaśiva

Administrative Directive 10117 of September 29, 2021

By the authority vested in me as The Supreme Pontiff of Hinduism and the Head of the Ancient Enlightened Hindu Civilizational Nation, the Kailasa, by the Constitution and the laws of Sanatana Hindu Dharma as ordained by Paramaśiva in Vedas and Agamas, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1. Background:

In KAILASA’s Nithyanandeshwara Hindu Temples, the deities are energized through the sacred process of prana prathista where life energy is breathed into matter. These energized deities become an independent intelligence, a direct vehicle of the Divine cosmic energy capable of answering prayers, healing ailments and granting boons. Everyday thousands around the world are witnessing the powers of prana pratishtha in these living deities of KAILASA’s Nithyanandeshwara Hindu Temples. The living deities are offered ’Ūpacaras’- services as per Vedāgamas to celebrate their presence in our lives. Neiveithyams are the offering of food to the divine that forms part of the ’Ūpacaras’ or Services. The deity is revered as a living entity who is offered food, fruits etc. among others and is an ultimate blessing to be able to partake a morsel of the Naivedhyam.

अपूपकाद्यं यद्द्रव्यं भोज्यं दत्वा शिवस्य तु|
वर्धते तस्य तद्धान्यं फलपुष्पादयस्तथा||
अदत्वा तु हरस्याथ भुक्तं तत्क्षीयते धनम्|
अल्पे महति वा तुल्यं फलमाढ्य दरिद्रयोः||

apūpakādyaṁ yaddravyaṁ bhojyaṁ datvā śivasya tu|
vardhate tasya taddhānyaṁ phalapuṣpādayastathā||
adatvā tu harasyātha bhuktaṁ tatkṣīyate dhanam|
alpe mahati vā tulyaṁ phalamāḍhya daridrayoḥ||

If those items such as the sweets and eatables , grains, fruits and such other materials and those which are to be used by the sadhaka are first offered to Siva and then used by him, then all those kinds of items would be flourishing well. The wealth enjoyed by the sadhaka without being offered to Siva would decay. For both the affluent persons and the poor persons, the fruit is the same irrespective of the smallness or greatness of the offered thing.
