During our visit to a Temple we receive the Divine Grace as 'prasad' to take back home. The Divinity in the Temple embraces us and comes along with us. This verily is 'prasad' and not just the coconut or fruits received. Is it then not obligatory on our part to give something back, in return for the 'prasad' blessed with? Chanting the Divine Name, the Mahamantra, at least a few times, is the best offering to the Divine Presence in the Temple, in return for the 'Grace' we carry home as 'prasad'!People are proud of so many things in life.
