Sannyäsa Initiation Lecture—Calcutta, January 26, 1973
373) Whether I know I should not take anything other than Prasadam! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
—————–Not that cooking in an, like a hotel, and sometimes, out of compassion, we distribute prasädam. That kind of, means bhunjate te agham päpä ye pacanty ätma-käranät [Bg. 3.13]. Simply for feeding myself or yourself. Just like in marriage ceremony and other ceremonies we do. That, that bhunjate te agham päpä, they’re simply eating päpä. Therefore we are prohibited to take prasädam anywhere and everywhere. Because if there is no Deity worship, if we take food from their house, then we partake the sin, resultant action of their sinful activities. We should be careful. Unless it is prasädam, if we accept invitation from anywhere and everywhere, that means we are accepting the sinful activities, resultant action of the sin, person. —————————————-
