Here’s What Internet Users Have To Say
Shared about 3 weeks back, the video is going viral like crazy on the Internet. It has already garnered almost 25 million views with more than 1 million likes and thousands of comments. People are impressed seeing the ‘fast and furious’ style of serving prasadam. There are a few Netizens who questioned and complained about the way of serving prasadam in the ISKCON Mayapur. Other Instagrammers came forward to explain the reason behind temples feeding so many devotees every single day and serving prasad is such a fast process.
An Instagrammer named vsahnii commented, “For those who don’t know Bharat, known as India has an ancient tradition of organising the distribution of Prasadam on spiritual events such as kirtan, katha and festive celebrations. It is regarded as pious. In Sanatan Vedic Culture, food distribution is considered the topmost donation, as while distributing food to anybody, we don’t have to test whether they deserve this according to their eligibility in terms of good karma or not. Anndaan is considered as Mahadaan. On the other hand, wearing slippers is not allowed in Vedic activities as in the presence of celestial demigods and in front of God’s form in the temple, it is not right to wear footwear as it is disrespectful. Jai Shri Krishna!”
