The God is supreme and eternal. Living beings are a part, while almighty denotes totality. Everything that we do is by the almighty’s strength and knowledge alone. Therefore what we get in life are a result of our actions is really the Divinity’s alone. We acknowledge this through the act of offering food to our God. One would understand the principle better with this Hindi phrase “Tera tujko arpan” – I offer what is yours to you. Once we understand this completely our attitude towards food and the act of eating changes. The positive attitude towards food is mostly observed in temples when we do not complain or criticize the quality of food we get as Prasaada or Prasaadam instead we eat it cheerfully accepting the Gods gift. Hence we offer food to God before eating it.
