Srimathe Ramanujaya Nama:


Offering of Food to Lord is called "bhogyasana' and one of the important
steps in Bhagavat Aradhana.
It is the opinion of Sri Vaishnava elders that any food that is eaten
without offering to Lord is considered stealing His
things and considered as one of 'Bhagavat Apacharams' (Sin towards Lord)

Further, a  Sri Vaishnava is expected to eat the Prasadam (After Offering
food to Lord, It should be called  Prasadam) only after
he completes 'Athiti Satkaram' ie, Hospitality towards any visitors or Co
Sri Vaishnava.
