Sannyäsa Initiation Lecture—Calcutta, January 26, 1973

372) Whether I know why prasadam is to be distributed! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

————————-The sannyäsi should worship the Deity in the temple and feed the poor. Poor does not mean that one who has no legs, no ears, or no… Poor… Everyone who is spiritually poor, he should be given prasädam. By eating, prasäde sarva-duhkhänäm hänir asyopajäyate. That is called paramätma-nisthäm. Yajna. It is called yajna-sistäsino santo mucyante sarva-kilbisaih. It is not poor-feeding. It is distributing the resultant action of yajna. This worship is yajna. So yajna-sistäsino… If you feed some men, not the so-called poor, everyone, then they’ll be freed from their sinful activities. Yajna-sistäsino santah mucyante sarva-kilbisaih. Kilbisaih means sinful activities. Therefore prasäda distribution. Because everyone is engaged simply duskrtinah, simply sinful activities. Eating everything, doing everything, and they’re life is full of sinful activities. Therefore to deliver them this prasäda distribution is required. Mucyante sarva-kilbisaih. —————————————-
