A live exaample of distribution of prasadam

Revatinandan das: One day we were brought to have a tour of the Golden Temple, and no pictures like a mosque; and at the top of the little temple there's a grantha, the holy book is there, and they sit reading it all the time. 

After we went there, we went to the chapati room. In those days, they were feeding anywhere from six to eight thousand people a day a free meal. The pit itself must have been about 12 or 14 feet across, and suspended over the middle of the fire was a big old cast iron plate. Then around the room were all these Indian men and women rolling chapatis. As we sat and watched, there were chapatis unpuffed and puffed flying through the air in the room all the time like flying saucers. Prabhupada said, "See how they are doing this. This is how you distribute prasadam." He really liked it. He said, "Learn to do like this."
