Why Mostly Banana and Coconut are offered to God?
Coconut and Banana are the only two-fruits which are considered to be the “Sacred Fruits”. All other fruits are tainted fruits ( partially eaten fruits). The reason is that these fruits does not grow after throwing the leftover part. Also, it doesn’t get germinated by bird drop.
If you eat Coconut and throw its outer shell, nothing will grow out of it. If you want to grow a coconut tree, you have to sow the entire coconut with the husk.
Similarly with Banana, if you eat a banana and then throw its peel, nothing will grow out of it. The banana tree can be grown by planting its seeds or by planting a banana rhizome. So we are offering pure fruits to God.
Hats off to our ancestors who had found this reality long ago, and they had made it as a system which is still followed religiously!
