Prashad is prepared in the langar
kitchen before or during the worship service. Devotees may also prepare
prashad in their homes and bring it to the worship service as an offering. Worshipers may request prashad at anytime during the service. During the the service, prashad which has been prepared for the program in the langar kitchen
, is brought in. All of the prashad is mixed together to be blessed before being distributed to the worshipers. Prahsad is also served at the conclusion of the service after the hukam is read.
Personal note: This step may differ from sangat to sangat. I have only seen prashad distributed to sangat while they were sitting. First paper napkins are distributed by sevadhars. And then another group of sevadhars walks through the sangat giving little lumps to any one who wants some. Everyone wants some.
ਜੇ ਕੋ ਮੂੰ ਉਪਦੇਸੁ ਕਰਤੁ ਹੈ ਤਾ ਵਣਿ ਤ੍ਰਿਣਿ ਰਤੜਾ ਨਾਰਾਇਣਾ ॥
jae ko moon oupadhaes karath hai thaa van thrin ratharraa naaraaeinaa ||
If someone is going to teach me something, let that be that the Lord is pervading the forests and fields.
