A great way to appreciate what we are given

By Thich Naht Han

AS FOOD IS SERVED:

I see clearly the presence of the entire universe supporting my existence.

WHILE LOOKING AT A FULL PLATE OF FOOD:

All living beings are struggling for life. May they all have enough food to eat today.

JUST BEFORE EATING:

The plate is filled with food. I am aware that each morsel is the fruit of much hard work by those who produced it.

WHILE TAKING THE FIRST FOUR MOUTHFULS OF FOOD:

With the first taste, I promise to practice loving-kindness.

With the second taste, I promise to relieve the suffering of others.

With the third taste, I promise to see others’ joy as my own.

With the fourth taste, I promise to learn the way of nonattachment and equanimity.

UPON FINISHING THE MEAL:

My plate is empty, my hunger satisfied. I vow to live for the benefit of all beings.
