ANNAPURNA

Hindu Food Goddess

Also known as Anna Purna

Hindu Goddess of Food Abundance

Too much is just about enough. She is a deity of ample sustenance, bursting rice bags and cupboards stuffed to bursting with goodies.

She has a Himalayan mountain named after her. So if faith can’t move mountains, mountains can move faith. She must now also be a Goddess of Food Mountains.
