What’s the difference?

Heard this story from Ramesh Balsekar:

There was a simple practice at Swami Nityanand’s ashram at Vajreshwari. When devotees offered him fruits, Swamiji would pass them on to one of his disciples so that they could be cut and offered to all devotees as prasad.

One day it so happened that the disciple forgot to cut and distribute one particular lot of fruits to the devotees. Worms devoured them instead.

The disciple rued to his Master, “Guruji, the fruits went a waste.”

Swami Nityanand replied, “They went to who they were meant for.”
