After the inauguration of Sri Kashi Vishwanath Dham, a new record is being created everyday of devotees coming to visit Baba. A similar record is also being made for ordering Baba’s Prasad through speed post. In 2020, there was an agreement between the Department of Posts and Shri Kashi Vishwanath Temple Trust.
Since then the Prasad of Shrikashi Vishwanath Temple is being made available to the people across the country through speed post service. After 3 years of starting the postal service, the demand for Baba’s Prasad has increased three times.
Devotees are thronging to have a darshan of Vishweshwar after Shrikashi Vishwanath Temple has come in a new-divine form. On the other hand, arrangements have also been made by the government to deliver prasad to the homes of those who are not able to reach Shrikashi Vishwanath Dham. People consider themselves blessed after receiving the prasad of Shri Kashi Vishwanath.
Postmaster General of Varanasi zone Shri Krishna Kumar Yadav said that there was an agreement between the Department of Posts and the Srikashi Vishwanath Temple Trust to deliver Baba’s offerings to the devotees in 2020. The number of people asking for Baba’s Prasad is increasing day by day. The demand for Prasad increases further on Baba’s special days of Sawan and Mahashivaratri. Canned prasad is in tamper proof envelope. This cannot be tampered with in any way. A replica of 200 postal stamp of Varanasi Ghat issued by the Department of Posts will also be found on top of the box.
