Have You Witnessed A Prasadam Miracle?

By: on March 20, 2009

Dear Vaishnavas,

Please accept my obeisances. All Glories to Srila Prabhupada.

Have you seen an encounter with prasadam transform someone’s life - - including your own?

For the past 35 years I’ve been cooking prasadam in ISKCON kitchens, including the well-known Kalachandji’s Restaurant in Dallas, Texas started in 1982, and now in Gainesville, Florida, home of the huge daily Krishna Lunch program at the University of Florida serving 5,000 plates a week. After seeing prasadam touch so many lives, I have resolved to compile a book entitled The Glories of Krishna Prasadam to disseminate such prasadam pastimes along with other important related topics, including:

The importance of prasadam distribution
Stories from shastra
Kitchen standards and etiquette
Restaurant standards
The spiritual and material importance of using ghee
The science of yajna explained
Foods to be avoided
Vegetarian vs. Vegan
Large quantity cooking recipes

And much, much more, all with relevant quotes from shastra and Srila Prabhupada.

Please send your prasadam miracles to Sunanda das at, and get the word out to other prasadam lovers to do the same. This will be a book whose time has come.
