Good morning, dear Katalin,

nice idea, thank you so much for the invitation!

This is (also) a good platform to train vocabulary English-Sanskrit.

I will at once start with one question.

Lots of sunshine to you for the day,

Om Namo Narayanaya

Devaki
Om Om Om
Jutha:

Hi and please:
Could somebody give some more explanations to 'jutha' and in connection with prassad?

Looking forward to receiving your clearing up, thanks in advance!!!

Love, Devaki
Om Om Om
Hi Devaki Erika-Ha,
here is the answer on your question / as i know/

Prasad can be both mental condition or material substance.

- mental condition has textual tradition in vedic literature , mental state from the earliest literature experienced by gods, and other powerful beings

- in material sense prasada is created by a process of giving and receiving between a human devotee and the divine god
The deity 'enjoys' or tastes a bit of the offering and is received by the devotee to eat.

Juhta(garbage)
Members of subordinate castes pick up the dirty plates of members of superior castes.
Food left on plates after eating is defined as garbage ; it is felt to have been polluted by the eater’s saliva.
Om Om Om

Thank you so much for the answer, dear Katalin, this is important to know.
Love & Light
Devaki
