Sri Annapurna Ashtakam is a devotional prayer addressed to Goddess Annapurneswari, the queen mother of Varanasi. Chanting or singing Sri Annapurna Astakam will help one to achieve all wishes. Shri Annapoorna Stotram is composed by Adi Shankaracharya to praise and invoke the grace of Mother Goddess Annapurneswari. Anna means food and grains, while the meaning of purna is full, complete, and perfect. Annapoorna is the Goddess of Nourishment, She who is full, complete, and perfect with food and grains. When Mother Annapoorna is worshiped, She blesses her children with nourishment beyond the gross material things we desire. She blesses us with the attainment of perfection in wisdom and renunciation. The wisdom Mother gives is the understanding that “Giving” is the true spirituality. She teaches that renunciation will allow us to remain in equanimity in all of life’s circumstances.  Chanting of Annapurna Ashtakam brings rain and relief from the drought.   

Annapurna means one who gives complete food. As the name indicates the Annapurna temple is dedicated to the Goddess of Food.Food is a part of human survival and so the creation of a Goddess to worship is the human attempt to be free from the fear of food scarcity. Annapurna Temple is said to keep Varanasi City free of Food Crisis. Not only in Varanasi but also across India Annapurna is worshipped on various occasions and in various names. Mostly Hindu devotees worship Annapurna on Makar sankranti and on the homecoming of new harvest from fields.
      Sri Annapurna Ashtakam is written by Adi Shankaracharya to praise and invoke the grace of Mother Goddess Annapurneswari. Mother Goddess Annapurneswari is the presiding deity at Banaras or Varanasi. She is the Mother who graces food to everybody; especially for poor and destitute. The Goddess of Varanasi also fed King Harishchandra's children (he became poor due to Rishi Vashishta). There are many Annapoorni temples in India where food is freely served every day to everyone i.e. Dharmasthala in Karnataka.  Annapurna oversees nature's energies, specifically those of wind, rain, and fire. Praying to her can bring much-needed rain. Mata Annapoorneswari. Annapurashtakam is also known as money mantra.
