How did the tradition of offering 56 Bhog started?
According to the legend, mother Yashoda used to feed Kanha 8 times a day in childhood. Once, to fulfill the wish of good rain in the village, Nand Baba and all together were organizing a big event to please Indradev. When Kanha came to know about this event, he said that if you want to worship for rain, then worship Govardhan mountain, not Indradev, it gives fruits and vegetables and animals will get fodder.
Kanha went without food for seven days.
Together they started worshiping Govardhan Parvat instead of Indradev. In anger, it rained on Indradev. There was water everywhere, then Krishna ji lifted the entire Govardhan mountain on one of his fingers and protected everyone. Kanha remained in this state for seven days without eating. After this, Mata Yashoda and all the villagers prepared and fed many dishes for Bal Gopal for seven days and eight prahars. This tradition has been going on since then.
