nityananda bale,--ei krsnera prasada
ihake 'jhutha' kahile, tumi kaile aparadha
nityananda bale—Lord Nityananda said; ei—this; krsnera prasadamaha-prasada of Lord Krsna; ihake—unto it; jhutha—remnants of food; kahile—if You say; tumi—You; kaile—have made; aparadha—offense.
Nityananda Prabhu replied, "These are the remnants of food left by Lord Krsna. If You take them to be ordinary remnants, You have committed an offense."
In the Brhad-visnu Purana it is stated that one who considers maha-prasada to be equal to ordinary rice and dal certainly commits a great offense. Ordinary edibles are touchable and untouchable, but there are no such dualistic considerations where prasada is concerned. prasada is transcendental, and there are no transformations or contaminations, just as there are no contaminations or transformations in the body of Lord Visnu Himself. Thus even if one is a brahmana he is certain to be attacked by leprosy and bereft of all family members if he makes such dualistic considerations. Such an offender goes to hell, never to return. This is the injunction of the Brhad-visnu Purana.
