Feed only hungry deserving priests

The first hymn of the first Veda says that the fire is the deserving priest and not the physical fire [Agnimele purohitam]. Kapila in Bhagavatam says that fools only burn ghee and food in the fire. The word ghee indicates the best food prepared with ghee and not mere ghee. You have to understand this meaning through the concept of 'lakshana'.


When you call the seller of apples by calling "Oh apples! Come", by 'lakshana', you mean the possessor of apples to come along with the apples and not mere apples. Similarly, the word 'ghee' means the food associated with the ghee. Both the words 'agni' and 'ghee' are totally misunderstood by the foolish ignorant priests, who are burning the ghee in physical fire. They mislead the devotees by saying that the angels eat the food through the fire [Agnimukhaah..Veda]. Here, the Vedic statement means that the angels eat the food through the hungry deserving priests.
