The presiding Deity of the kitchen is Shri Annapurnadevi. She provides us with food. Food that will be liked by everyone and sattvikta (Purity) received by the people who consume it depends on the love of the individual who prepares it and his/her bhav (Spiritual emotion) for God.
Kitchen is a space meant for cooking. It should be clean and well-lit. Only where there is cleanliness and tidiness, Shri Annapurnadevi and God reside there. Similarly, the utensils, food items and water in the kitchen should also be clean. Let us understand precautions to be taken at physical, psychological and spiritual levels while cooking food.
A patient recovers faster due to the ‘healing touch’ of some doctor. A woman who prepares good food is called an expert cook. A doctor who has a ‘healing touch’ indicates that his constitution is sattvik. Such an individual being kind-hearted, the proportion of sattvik vibrations generated is more in the task he undertakes. Due to the predominance of sattvik vibrations, the Raja-Tama components get destroyed in a short period. Therefore, a patient is cured faster with the ‘healing touch’ of such an individual. Similarly, a woman who is an expert cook is predominant in the Sattva component.
