Power of Prasadam- HH RNSM Speaks


Lord Chaitanya Maha prabhu just as He would worship, glorify and honored the Holy name and deity in temple, He was glorifying with same ecstasy the taste of Krishna Prasadam. Therefore we pray Maha Prasade Govinde… Just by tasting the supremely pure Prasadam that has been tasted by Govinda, and as we chant the Holy names of Krishna we become free from all our sins. Lord Chaitanya Maha prabhu began to teach his Devotees that only after millions of births when one is most fortunate does one has opportunity to taste sweetness of Krishna’s Prasad. We shouldn’t take Prasadam as something ordinary. Sometimes Devotees just sit down and eat, but Sri Chaitanya Maha prabhu wants to make us aware that the fact that we are getting Krishna Prasadam it took millions of births to achieve this platform. Only if we are so very very spiritually fortunate, can we possibly come in contact with Krishna’s Prasadam. It’s so purifying!!! Even most sinful person is guaranteed a human life if he tastes Prasadam. Even a dog or animal is elevated through cycle of evolution of soul and gets human life just by tasting or smelling piece of Prasadam. This is power of Krishna’s Prasadam!!!

Srila Prabhupada, when He went to the west, had complete faith on potency Krishna's Prasad. People  who had no affinity or attraction whatsoever for anything religious, who were addicted to illicit sex, intoxication, gambling and meat eating and all sorts of atheistic ways of life, bombarding senses with most terrible & abominable forms of sense gratification, they wouldn't  take to chanting of  the Holy names and reading the scriptures... but Srila Prabhupada gave them Prasadam. Gradually by eating Prasadam, they started following principles - no gambling, no intoxication, no illicit sex, no meat eating… just by eating Prasadam they started associating with Devotees, chanting the holy names, chanting Japa and chanting in ecstasy in Kirtan Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare   Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare !! Then they became initiated Brahmins chanting Gayatri mantra and they started going out and preaching to masses. Even the most highly qualified Brahmins would come and touch their feet and ask them to speak the teachings of Bhagavad Gita and Bhagavat. This is power of Krishna's Prasadam. And to the degree (we approach Krishna), Krishna says ye yetha mam prapadyante…

As we approach Krishna, he will reveal himself accordingly. If we approach Krishna’s Prasadam with great eagerness, that is not very difficultJ, that’s how mercy will be revealed to us.
