What is the ideal Bramhabhoj after completion of the Anusthan ?

Q.13. What is the ideal Bramhabhoj after completion of the Anusthan ?

Ans. In an Anusthan the last ritual is Brahmbhoj after Poornahuti in the Havan. Traditionally it requires feeding Brahmans or young maidens. Qualified, deserving Brahmans are not easily available, these days. Alternatively, maidens (who being symbolic of mother power of God the Matri Shakti, are fed to augment faith) are offered food, but at times they are not permitted by self-respecting parents to take food in a strangers house. Brahmbhoj has, thus, ceased to have relevance in the contemporary society. Under these circumstances, Brahmdan i.e. Dissemination of spiritual wisdom (Sadgyan) can truly serve the purpose of Brahmbhoj. For each Ahuti, one is recommended to donate one paisa (one hundredth of local currency) for Brahmdan and with this amount procure literature pertaining to Yug Nirman (resurrection of moral values in the society) and distribute it to deserving persons. In this manner, one can sow seeds of spiritual wisdom in many hearts, the fruits of which are reaped by the readers and motivators alike.
