Chhappan Bhog

Chhappan Bhog

"Chhappan Bhog" is a Hindi word. Chhappan means fifty-six i.e. 56. Bhog means  food which we offer to God before serving to others. When food is offered to God, it becomes  "Prasad".

Bhog Lagana :-


* Food  is offered to the deity with chanting of religious prayers. A part of it is put to the lips
of the idol as well.  This is called “Bhog Lagana”.


* Small portions of the sanctified "Prasad or Prasadam"  are offered to all the gathered devotees who take it in their extended palms.


* So Chhappan Bhog means the Prasad consisting of 56 completely different food items. The items can be raw as well as cooked.


* Usually the list begins with rasagullas and ends in elaichi. Many different food items are used.They vary from place to place.

Story of "Chhappan Bhog" :-

The story belongs to Lord Krishna.






 As per the story, when Krishna saw huge preparations for the annual offerings to god Indra , he debated with the villagers about what their 'dharma' truly was. He said that all human beings should merely do their 'karma', to the best of their ability and not pray or conduct sacrifices for natural phenomenon. The villagers were convinced by Krishna, and did not proceed with the special puja (prayer). Angered god  Indra thus invoked many clouds to appear in the sky and schemed to flood the region with rains lasting for seven days and seven nights. Krishna in reply then lifted Govardhan hill, under which all the animals and people of the region took shelter, safe from the rains of Indra's fury. Ultimately, Indra accepted defeat, recognized Krishna as supreme. And after praying to Krishna, left for his heavenly abode, the Swarga.

Lord Krishna used to require eight meals on a daily basis. when he lifted Govardhan Parvat for seven days he couldn't eat. After seven days when it absolutely was over and god Indradev realised his mistake and surrendered. People were and happy and offered Lord Krishna Bhojan for what he had missed throughout the seven days. 

As we know :-
7 x 8 = 56

They made fifty-six different things for Lord Krishna and offered Him as a token of their love and gratitude. And it absolutely was known as "Chappan Bhog" (fifty six things).

Thus began the tradition of offering "Chhappan Bhog" to God on a festive occasion.
