Daily Thanksgiving Meal Prayers

Well, another Thanksgiving has passed. But, we should not forget to be thankful every day. Below are 5 prayers to recite before every meal.

1. This food is the gift of the whole universe—the earth, the sky, and much hard work.

2. May we live in a way that makes us worthy to receive it.

3. May we transform our unskillful states of mind, especially our greed.

4. May we take only foods that nourish us and prevent illness.

5. We accept this food so that we may realize the path of practice.
