Quotations from Srila Prabhupada

I have listed the ingredients which may use for preparing prasadam but these various varieties of foodstuffs may be prepared either in the given recipes or if you like you may invent nice new formulas for offering. The important thing is that your preparations be palatable for Lord Krishna and that the ingredients be within the groups of ingredients already listed. You have asked me about sassafras and yes, it may be offered. Mushrooms are generally not offered, but there is no prohibition, there is no harm in them. I hope that this has answered your questions. Please keep me informed as to the progress of your temple. 

Hope you are all well. 

Your ever well-wisher, 

A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami

Ref. VedaBase Letter to: Harer Nama — Los Angeles 1 December, 1968

Because mushrooms grow in a filthy place, they are not usually offered to Krishna. It is very nice that all the men should participate in deity-worship, this will sanctify their all other work. I think you are the most clever manager, better than your husband, because you are organizing temple routine very nicely for serving the deities and this will have very good results for everyone. 

I hope this meets you in good health and cheerful mood. 

Your ever well-wisher, 

A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
