Prasad is usually an edible gift used in Hindu worship and presented to a deity. The deity blesses the gift and then shares it with those making the offering, demonstrating grace and generosity between the Divine and humanity. Although this practice is often carried out with edible offerings, other material items can be used as well.
Within yoga, individuals aim for self-transformation and connection with the Divine. Prasad is a method of such a connection through an experiential exchange that teaches the individual grace and receiving with humility.
