Sanskrit prayer before meals

Sanskrit praer before meals, ayurvedaThis Sanskrit prayer to be read before a meal, indicates that eating and digesting is a sacred act. The prayer means know Anna, the food to be Brahma (the creative force), the juices in the food, the elements worthy of digestion to be Vishnu (the force that sustains), and the act of digestion to be Shiva (the force that destroys non-essentials). If you know this while you have your meals, no ill-effects which may have otherwise emanated from the food will affect you. Know the act of eating and digestion to be sacred :-) Food in Banke Bihari ki gali

Gandhi’s prayer for peace

I offer you peace, 

I offer you love,

I offer you friendship,

I see your beauty,

I hear your need,

I feel your feelings,

My wisdom flows from the Highest Source.

I salute that source in you.

Let us work together for unity and love.

(Gandhi’s prayer for peace)
