Why we serve 56 types of cuisines to Lord Shree Krishna.
Great glory is behind this. For these 56 types of cuisines, the fifty-six is called enjoyment. The enjoyment starts with yoghurt dumplings, rice, whole, papad and this ends with the last element of bhog as cardamom.
It is also said that Maiya Yashoda Ji use to serve eight times food in a day to the Bala Krishna. Here is the story of the 56 type of cuisines bhog or 56 bhog.
To protect the Govardhana parvat from the wrath of Indra, Lord Shree Krishna lifted up the Govardhana for the seven consecutive days without the food and water. Shree Krishna just stood beneath the Parvat and all the people of the village are under the parvat. On eight day, when Lord Shree Krishna said, rain is over now you can go outside. All the people of the village are feeling sad for the thing that Bal Krishna survived for the 7 days without any food for the sake of villages. They are speechless and overwhelmed with the feeling towards Bala Krishna. Then the Maiya Yasodha and the villagers just decided to make happy Lord Krishna with the 56 bhogs and show their love to the lord.
The logic behind the 56 bhog is;
7 Days and 8 times food serving in a day (7 day X 8 times bhog = 56 bhog)
According to Shrimad Bhagwat Githa, Gopikaon does not only dawn to bathe in the Yamuna, even they desired to receive the husband like the Nand Kumar Bala Krishna. Lord Krishna consented to the fulfillment of their wishes. To mark the end of fasting and wishes to complete, the served the Lord with 56 bhog.
There are 6 bhog and 56 Sakhian enjoyment… It is also said that Lord Krishna and Radhika are living on a sacred lotus in Gulok. Behind the speciality of rose, there is a fact also. The first layer consists of three layers of lotus “eight”, the second in “sixteen” and third in “thirty-two petals”. On the each petal there is a Sakhi residing and in the middle of these petals lord is residing. Thus the total number of petals is 56. This is the meaning of the number 56.
