Food Donation

अन्नदानमाहात्म्यवर्णनं नामैकादशोऽध्यायः
Importance of food donation Chapter 11

सनत्कुमार उवाच |
Sanatkumar said (to sage Vyasa)

अन्नं प्रजापतिः साक्षादन्नं विष्णुः स्वयं हरः |
तस्मादन्नसमं दानं न भूतं न भविष्यति || 48 ||
कृत्वापि सुमहत्पापं यः पश्चादन्नदो भवेत् |
विमुक्तः सर्वपापेभ्यः स्वर्गलोकं स गच्छति || 49 ||
Food is Lord Brahma in visible form, food is Lord Vishnu, food is Lord Shiva himself. Therefore, there has never been and will never be donation as good as that of food.
If one becomes a donor of food even after commiting a grave sin, one gets liberated from all sins and goes to heaven.
