A Beautiful Mealtime Prayer

It is important to be mindful as much as possible. When I say this small prayer, it helps me to be mindful of how precious each morsel of food is aswell as the fragility of life.

This food is a gift of the universe,
Each morsel is a sacrifice of life,
May it give me the strength to transform unwholesome qualities into wholesome ones,

I am grateful for this food,
May I realise the path of awakening that benefits all beings.
Namo Amida Buddha
