Scientific Importance of Sharad Purnima’s Kheer
We are already aware with the practice of feeding asthma patients by making kheer on the night of Sharad Purnima, but here we are talking about facing malaria with Kheer. In fact, our ancient traditions are very scientific in nature, not of ignorance. But that we will make you understand later. From the Shradh to Sharad Purnima, the kheer we eat gives us many benefits.
As we all, know we get malaria by mosquito bites. We must be getting bitten by mosquitoes at least 700-800 times in a year. That means by the age of 70 years, we might have gotten 1 lac mosquito bites. But most people will get malaria only once or twice a year. The summary is that it is only 1% correct that we get malaria by mosquito bites.
Kheer Khao Malaria Bhagao
But there is no shortage of advertisements, which says, one mosquito is also dangerous, use “Hit”, then not even a single mosquito will be left. Now, in the wake of such advertisements, millions of people are indirectly involved in this mosquito market
Everyone knows that bacteria cannot grow without appropriate environments.
Like we cannot get yogurt just by adding a bit of yogurt in the milk, milk should be heated a little. It must be kept covered in a warm environment. If we keep stirring it, then also we won’t get any curd.
Similarly, the bacteria of malaria develop when it gets the environment of pitta, then it spreads to the whole body within 4 days, otherwise it ends in a short time. Even after so many efforts, it is not in our hands that we will not get bitten by mosquitoes or diseased microscopic pests.
But controlling pitta is in our hands. Now look at the miracle of our traditions. Why having Kheer becomes mandatory this season? In fact, eating pudding suppresses pitta.
After the rainy season, when the autumn comes, there is a lot of sunlight due to the absence of clouds and dust in the sky. By which the pitta gets irritated in the body. At this time, due to the accumulated water in pits etc., mosquitoes are produced in large quantities, which is the highest risk of malaria.
In the autumn itself, the Pitra Paksh (Shraddha) comes and the main food of the ancestors is Kheer. During this period, we get to devour kheer 5-7 times. After that, on the night of Sharad Purnima, kheer is kept in a silver vessel under the moonlight for the whole night and then in the morning this kheer is consumed. This particular kheer reduces the outbreaks of pitta in our body.
Make this Kheer and keep it in the moonlight of the whole night in the moon. You will get the benefit only when its consumed cold.
For the Kheer made for the night of Sharad Purnima, if you do not have a silver plate, then put the spoon of silver in the kheer, but the vessel should be made of clay, bronze or brass. Avoid using aluminium or plastic.
This kheer carries special coolness. If its cow’s milk, then it is very good and special. The possibility of getting malaria gets minimal.
Do not use saffron and nuts to make this particular kheer, which is made in this season. They can increase pitta due to the tendency to increase heat in the body. If possible, then just pour cardamom and charoli.
