In Hinduism, Annapurna is the universal and timeless kitchen-goddess, the mother who feeds. Without mother there would be starvation and a universal fear for hunger. Her most popular shrine is located in Kashi, on the banks of the river Ganga.” Her association with the giving of food (wealth) led her in time to be transformed into Lakshmi, the Goddess of Wealth so from the religious view it is important to respect the Mother Nature, create peaceful and calm surroundings.
