MAHA PRASAAD - SIGNIFICANCE
We encourage all our devotees to prepare and bring maha prasaad to temple every Sunday.
What is Prasaad/Prasadam?
Prasadam is a Sanskrit word which means mercy. Prasadam is food that has first been specifically prepared for God and offered to his/her deity. Prasaad is the spiritual nourishment that comes from acknowledging our dependency on God and the blessingsk of Mother Earth. Prasadam is considered “karma-free” food since it is sanctified by God. We offer it to God in thansgiving. After offering to God, food becomes pure and spiritually nourishing. When we eat food that has been offered to God or Goddess, we receive the mercy of the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
