Govinda’s Karma Free Prasadam!, 100% Vegetarian!
Govinda’s Prasadam is part of a worldwide chain of Restaurants opened by the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON). Popularly known as the Hare Krishna movement, ISKCON is a cultural movement dedicated to the re-spiritualisation of society. An important part of this mission is the distribution of sanctified foodstuffs, known as “Krishna-prasad”, which is pure vegetarian food nicely prepared and offered in devotion to Lord Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. By this process the food is sanctified and one who eats it becomes spiritually benefited. By regularly taking Krishna-prasad one will feel an upliftment of spirit and a diminishing material anxiety. Govindas vegetarian restaurants serve only Krishna-prasad, expertly prepared with love for the pleasure of Sri Krishna. We hope you enjoy your meal and also appreciate the unique spiritual experience of eating Krishna-prasad.
What is karma-free food?
The Sanskrit word karma means “action”, or more specifically, any material action that brings a reaction that binds us to the material world. Although the idea of karma is generally associated with eastern philosophy, many people in the West are also coming to understand that karma is a natural principle, like time or gravity and no less inescapable. For every action there is a reaction. According to the law of karma, if we cause pain and suffering to other living beings, we must endure pain and suffering in return, both individually and collectively. We reap what we sow, in this life and the next.

The taking of any life, even that of a plant, is certainly sinful, but Krishna, the supreme controller, frees us from sin by accepting what we offer. Eating food first offered to the Lord is something like a soldier´s killing during wartime. In a war, when the commander orders a man to attack, the obedient soldier who kills the enemy will get a medal. But if the soldier kills someone on his own, he will be punished. Simelarly, when we eat only prasada, we do not commit any sin. This confirmed in the Bhagavad-gita (3.13) “The devotees of the Lord are released from all kind of sins because they eat food which is offered first for sacrifice. Others, who prepare food for personal sense enjoyment, eat only sin.”
