*Prasadam


Prasadam is specifically prepared for God
Food that is first offered
To God is considered sacred
Prasadam means the Mercy of the Lord.

Prasadam is karma – free food
Since it is sanctified by God
It is offered to satisfy our Lord
Remembering that He supplies all good.

When we prepare and offer food
Specifically for our Lord God
Partaking of the food by the God
Happens and leaves the remnant food.

On preparing and eating
Prasadam, we thank Him for every thing
He has done for us—with praying
That we will ever remember Him singing.

Prasadam is in nature auspicious
Hence is distributed to devotees
The sanctified food agrees
And the partaking people it pleases.

    a very different poem about a unique topic...anything esp. the food that is on God's name becomes holy and is taken as a blessing! ! ! (Report) Reply

    Prasadam later eaten by the devotees themselves perhaps tells about how 'God`s wish' begins to take wings and once He appears as food before the hungry millions His wishes get fulfilled for ever and the humanity is blessed for ever! (Report) Reply

    Prasadam, I believe is an external manifestation of sharing in God's bounty! Naturally when we partake of it, we experience fullness! An enlightening write! ! (Report) Reply
