BrihadArUpa1 1 That the father produced seven kinds of food through meditation and rites (I shall disclose). One is common to all eaters. Two he apportioned to the Devas. Three he designed for himself. And one he gave to the animals. On it rests everything what lives and what does not. Why are they not exhausted, although they are always being eaten He who knows this cause of their permanence eats food with Pratika (pre eminence). He attains (identity with) the Devas and lives on nectar. These are the verses.
BrihadArUpa1 indeed the cause of their permanence, for he produces this food through his meditation for the time being and rites. If he does not do this, it will be exhausted. He eats food with Pratika Pratika means pre eminence; hence the meaning is, pre eminently. He attains the Devas and lives on nectar is a eulogy.
