The Five Contemplations: Food Blessing by Thich Nhat Hahn

Wednesday, November 21st, 2012

This food is the gift of the whole universe: the earth, the sky and much hard work.
May we live in a way that makes us worthy to receive it.
May we transform our own unskilled states of mind and learn to eat with moderation.
May we take only foods that nourish us and prevent illness.
We accept this food so that we may realize the path of understanding and love.

~Bless this food~
