Hindu Bhojan mantr-Prarthna before meals

HINDU BHOJAN MANTR (prarthna before partaking of meals)

ॐ ब्रहमार्पणं ब्रहमहविर्; ‌ब्रहमाग्नौ ब्रहमणा हुतम् ।

ब्रहमैव तेन गन्तव्यं ; ब्रहमकर्मसमाधिना ॥

Brahmarpanam brahm havih – r- brahma maagrau brahmana hutam

Brahmaiv ten gantavyam brahm-karm-samadhinaa

ॐ सह नाववतु ।सह नौ भुनक्तु ।सह वीर्यं करवावहै ।

तेजस्विनावधीतमस्तु ।मा विद्‌विषावहै ॥

ॐ शान्ति: शान्ति: शान्ति:

Om Saha Naav[au]-Avatu

Saha Nau Bhunaktu

Saha Viiryam Karavaavahai

Tejasvi Naav[au]-Adhiitam-Astu Maa

Om shantih shantih shantih

(The above Shlok is from the Bhagavad-Gita {chapter4 shlok 24} which is also chanted together as Bhojan Mantr)

जैसा अन्न ग्रहण करते हैं, वैसा मन और विचार होते हैं।

यह भी मानते हैं की सोच विचार कर किसी के घर का भोजन करना चाहिए।

भोजन करते समय भोजन का निरादर नहीं करना चाहिए, चाहे जैसा भी हो।

पूर्ण कृतज्ञता के साथ भोजन करना है।

The act of eating is considered to be a sacred time (ie if we regulate our meals and not eat all through the day)

As per Hindu scriptures a meal should begin with the appropriate bhojan prarthna; a prarthna of offering food to the Brahm within us all. A prarthna of gratitude and peace. So that the bhojan taken gives us good positive energy and peace.

A simple thought of being grateful for the food that is before you is powerful enough to turn it into positive energy.

Take only as much as you are going to eat. Wastage of ann (food) is being disrespectful of the food you receive.
