Question: In the class last week we heard that it is ok to accept the prasadam of Lord Siva, thinking that he is the foremost of vaisnavas. Similarly, if the prasadam of other devatas like Ganesa, Kartikeya, etc. are offered to us, should we accept thinking that they are also servitors of the Lord? Is it considered offensive if we don’t take the prasadam?

Jayapataka Swami: If you think that they are separate, then you should not take their prasadam, but if you see that they are devotees, then it is alright to take the prasadam. So it will be offensive to reject it. 10-Dec-2020 ŚRĪ MĀYĀPUR DHAM, INDIA
