Before offering to God, it is food. Once it is offered to God, it becomes free from all impurities and gets transformed into prasadam. By eating such sacred food, one will not acquire any mental impurities. We offer food to God on a clean plantain leaf. The human body is a plantain leaf, our heart is a sacred vessel and the sacred food items are the virtues and acts of good conduct. Nowadays our sacred food offering is to demons of wicked feelings such as anger, hatred, and jealousy. The left over is being offered to God. That is why we become victims of restlessness, difficulties, sorrows, and misery. Hence to be happy and peaceful we must develop and practice the good virtues and qualities.
