I went to the Gurdwara today and a singh asked me to serve prasad. I went to wash my hands and he wanted it in a bag. The bag wasn't strong enough so the prasad sort of made a hole. 

It fell on the floor and I picked it up. I gave the singh another bag to put it in.

Then, a singhni came and asked for prasad. She asked for the one that fell on the floor and was on my hand. I told her it fell on the floor and she said it is ok. (It didn't fall on the floor for very long so I guess the 3 second rule counts?)

It felt wrong for some reason. 

Can someone assure me what I did was correct/wrong?

Prashaad is blessed and should not be wasted. If, whilst serving, it drops on the floor, it should be picked up and eaten. It should not be wasted. 


You know for next time to maybe double wrap the prashad, or give it to the sangat and let them put it in the bag themselves.

prashad is sacred, extreme care, precutions, should be taken to not let it fall down.

It is more precious than any valuable items, jewellery or money.

It is just not something eatable, but rather something pure, blessings, from Guru Jee to Sangat, through sewadars.

The sewadar should be very attentive, and feel blessed, by doing that sewa of prashad distribution, though no sewa is small in His eyes, but where prashad is concerned, extreme care should be taken.


Sat Sree Akal.

Mona to Singh, don't worry too  much. This happens to the best of us. You will be forgiven by god for being honest.  Go and do 2 sets of bench presses and four sets of tricep extensions. All will  be fine.


 OMG..........Strong arms are needed to distribute the parsad so get on with some bicep curls too. Do about 6 sets of these for next time around. Be safe than sorry.

    • It's why Sant Teja Singh started Baru Sahib. I read it in a book called The Sikh Saints. It says all falsehood in India will lead to its destruction.
    • When did I say anything about the darshan of God? Guruji tells us those that meditate on Naam maybe fortunate to have darshan of God in their dreams in a many pangtis.      ਕਬ ਦੇਖਉ ਪ੍ਰਭੁ ਆਪਨਾ ਆਤਮ ਕੈ ਰੰਗਿ ॥

    • I think this debate could go on for a while, mt issue with people saying "mona" is the simple fact that i know Punjabi's with cut hair that respect and adhere to Sikhi more than ones with a dastaar and even fully grown beards, as far as flying under the radar, there are plenty of us out there with a pagh on our heads that do that, it's not restricted to those that have cut hair. Sarbjit Singh from Rajoanatv is a highly regarded human rights activist, the man know's more about injustices done to Sikhs than anyone I know, he's a "mona", i've never seen him fly under the radar. Like i said, we could debate forever, everyone has their own opinion and though process.
    • Though I like reading philosophy. Reading Epictetus after some Seneca and Marcus Aurelius, it's not a patch on Gurbani. But the ancient Greeks and Roman had some good ideas and they had some ideas of the divine  (not their Pantheon of God's like Zeus/Jupiter etc.) If anything it was more advanced than when they took up those Judeo -Christian beliefs.  Some of their thinking was more in-line with Dharmic thinking.
