I’ve been going to the Gurdwara more frequently than usual, partly because of my health. I feel obligated to take prashaad when sewadaar offers it because my parents always taught me it’s disrespectful to refuse it.
With Diwali and Gurpurabs coming up I’m probably going to be spending a lot more time in the Gurdwara this month, so I thought I’d ask for advice here.
Thank you for your question. This may be question of all diabetic members of the congregation.
I am unaware of any direct reference to this question in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji.
It is normally considered impolite to refuse to take the PARSHAAD.
It is quite respectful to request for a smaller portion. You may request for as small a portion as you like and that is considered very acceptable.
