Garuda Puran: One Should Never Eat In The House Of These People


Garuda Puran is one of the 18 literatures authored by Ved Vyas. The book consists of 279 chapters and 18,000 Shlokas. A number of shlokas for the general guidance of his fellow humans have also been written down in the book. Taken from that collection, here is something in which the author says that there is a group of people at whose home we should never have food.

The belief is based on the theory that we become what we eat. The concept highlights that when food comes under the influence of negative energy, it acquires that and this energy then gets transferred to the one who eats the food. Here is what the author further says on it.

As a part of Indian tradition we often have food at the houses of our friends and relatives. Well, here is a list of the people at whose home we should never have food. Moreover, having food is just an indication towards the inference that one should avoid making very good and close bonds with some of these people.


A Thief Or A Criminal

One should never have food at a criminal's place. Garuda Puran says that when a person eats with or in the house of a thief, he also becomes a beneficiary of his earning made by evil means. Since the food prepared consists things bought from the money earned through evil means, the credit gets distributed among those who eat the fruit of the action. Moreover, a thief might make you another of his victims.
