Buddhist Blessing for Food

In our age of eating disorders and soul-hunger, this simple, profound blessing helps to put food and eating into a healed perspective. May this blessing bring you to a place of mindfulness with every bite of food you take.

Buddhist Blessing for Food

Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space
combine to make this food.
Numberless beings gave their lives
and labors that we may eat.
May we be nourished
that we may nourish life.
