Often, devotees ask me to perform anna prasana for their child. Usually they bring some rice cooked in milk, which I am supposed to spoon into the baby's mouth.
But anna prasana should consist of more than this. Those who do not know or cannot perform the traditional rituals may conduct anna prasana by calling Vaisnavas to perform kirtana, and then sumptuously feeding those Vaisnavas.
Also, I will perform anna prasana only for devotees who never eat anything except Krsna prasada and who vow not to feed anything else to their baby.
