The rose-colored light that we see. San Francisco, 1968:
Visnujana: I was going to ask if the rose-colored light that we see around the food when it's being offered up...
Prabhupada: You can ask after we have finished all these things. Not within the lecture you cannot ask. What is that? ...
Upendra: ...the eternal form of the Lord is par excellence spiritual or transcendental to the modes of material nature. The very same transcendental form of the Lord is manifested by His internal potency and the formation of His multifarious manifestation of incarnations are always of the same transcendental quality without any touch of the mahat-tattva." Text number 4.
Prabhupada: That's all right. Now what is your question?
Visnujana: We offered food up one time to Krsna.
Prabhupada: Some fruit?
Visnujana: Yes, fruit, to Krsna. And while we were offering it up, when we raised our head we looked at the food and we saw a rose-colored light that was vibrating all around the food. Is this how He eats?
Prabhupada: (pause) He eats. How He eats, that you can understand when you make advancement to that stage. He eats. For the time being, you just take it for granted that He eats. How He eats, that is not possible because you cannot see Him. And how can you see that how He is eating? So that requires spiritual vision, and we shall understand. But He eats, we take it. Because in the Bhagavad-gita He says that "I eat." Asnami. Asnami means "I eat.""
