Although we don’t offer feast, we distribute prasad � fruits and sweets � from noon to late in the night,” said Raghunath Prasad Verma.
According to the Hindu mythology, after 11,000 years of meditation, Lord Brahma opened his eyes, he saw a man holding pen and ink-pot in his hands and a sword girdled to his waist.
The man asked Lord Brahma, by which name he will be known in the world? Lord Brahma replied, “You have been created from my body (Kaya), therefore, will thy progeny be known as the Kayasthas.
You have been conceived in my mind (Chitra) and in secrecy thy name will also be Chitragupta.”
