The literal meaning of the Sanskrit word “Prasad” is mercy. So, when we say “Krishna Prasad” we are referring to Krishna’s mercy. Therefore, Prasad means Krishna’s mercy, and Prasad is the remnant of something that has been prepared for the pleasure of Sri Krishna with love and offered to Him for His enjoyment. Because Krishna has tasted and enjoyed the offering, Prasad is not a material thing. Once Krishna tastes something it becomes transcendental. Krishna and Krishna Prasad are non-different. Skanda Purana explains that irrespective of whether one is brahmachari, grhastha, vanaparashtha or sanyasi, everyone must eat Krishna Prasad. If one eats Krishna Prasad, the living entity derives the benefit equal to that of performing millions of sacrifices.
