Siva Sankari's thoughts on God realisation.

A beautiful portrayal of journey towards God- realization is given here by writer Siva sankari.

On her childhood incident on offering prasad to God :-

While offering food to God,

one must think in the way, how one will take care of feeding a 5-month old child,

The food should not be too hot or too cold.

It must be just luke-warm.

How a person will be very careful in preparing the food for the child,

so must one prepare food for God.

There are questions like

* should one offer food to God at all.

* Is He hungry or will He shun us if we don't offer food to Him.

* Is it not better to offer food to humans and other living ones than to offer food to an idol?

These questions will be taken up in subsequent posts.
