Religious beliefs behind making coriander registries
On Janmashtami, there is a belief behind making coriander registers that Kanha ji loved Makhan-Mishri. To avoid excessive consumption of Makhan-Mishri, Kanha should not harm Kanha, mother Yashoda used to feed him with a register of coriander in Prasad. Since then, the tradition of planting Kanha on Janmashtami started on the day of Janmashtami. There are many benefits of using coriander registries in Ayurveda as well. Coriander registers work to protect from the defects of Tridosha i.e. Vata, Pitta Kapha.
