Hindu Bhojan mantra-Prayer before meals

HINDU BHOJAN MANTR (prayer 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

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

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

 

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 it should begin with the appropriate bhojan prarthna; a prayer of offering food to the Brahm within us all. A prayer 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.

Give me more..Dil maange more…!!

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The Heart and the Mind are always asking for more, “give me more”…always;

could be for things or for experiences – newer and better;   a little more exciting, a little better than the last time..

So what  happens?  We are always hungry; there is always greed and hunger;

for more, and more..

There are a few individuals controlling the mass intelligence – Marketing is the game of ‘Kalyug’.. (the present era according to Hinduism) As we are all aware of, in the entire human history there always have been a few individuals influencing the masses. And,

The course of humanity depends on who these ‘Few’ are,  what is their quality!

Running without satisfaction

Running without satisfaction

If these few; themselves are not peaceful nor content; and are so shallow, so hungry – what will they give humanity?

An illusion is created making us believe we are receiving a lot, we are progressing – yes progressing I would agree in a limited way – but towards what?

Losing one’s human ness? Falling in the trap of greediness?

We have forgotten to even respect nature – the bounties of which we are totally dependent on.

In this time period the whole of humanity is being taken to the summit of materialistic and luxury living; 100% sense pleasures – drown yourselves in them – go deeper in it.

What happens? What do we experience?

As the satisfaction achieved is very temporary, more and more is required for the same results, and the fun part is ‘the more you have the more you want’; human greed and appetite is never satisfied; contentment is never felt for any lasting period.

As the slogan of our times – Dil maange more’, is so apt for the dissatisfaction and unrest we experience in our lives today. The whole media is  manipulated into creating a demand which is never satisfied. We are being led to a truth of ‘Jet age gurus’, ‘Instant spirituality’, ‘Quick Kundalini rise’, ‘Immediate peace and better health’ etc              

All these slogans sound religious – but what’s the goal? Greater peace, better health, more religion, more knowledge, all leading to what? Only so that you can go on living and enjoying the ‘maya’ in a deeper way.abhashahra

Sad is to see how the youngest of our generations has been influenced by the media towards so much negativity. The ‘Sanskriti’ and religion of our country has become a joke in various social settings.

The whole environment has been made so sensual, how can the younger people escape from its influence? It’s become uncontrollable – as children blinded by what they see and read, go berserk in fulfilling themselves.

The need for everyone is joy that is ever lasting – love that    will never fade with time – And of course, total bliss and Anand.  

Intellectually, we may even know where it is and how to get there – but how many are able to put themselves in the open for the inner dimensions to be touched by the light?

Soul’s Demand

Walking on the spiritual path sometimes asks for the extreme in sacrifice and faith.

Also at every step one is put through exams, by the Superior Intelligence; to verify if one is truly ready to move on to the next step.

Soul Demands

Jai Shreeji!!

World Of Beggars…

…There is an age old belief, “One can give (to the other) only, what is there on his inner side”

So in a world of beggars, who will give?

All are empty in themselves, hungry for various things –

Greater name, more money, higher power

Simply the strong desire to tower above the rest of the humanity in what ever capacity – could even be in the mask of religion!

So, unless there is an overflowing of love from within, and the person totally contained in himself, how will he be ever expected to give JOY to others around?

And, “Except in the people  who have merged with the consciousness and are close to God , can such a quality be available;

Which is very rare…

Karmic Outcomes

Your own actions will determine your future. As you sow, so shall you reap!

Be very cautious and aware in your interactions

Your present karmas-actions  decide the outcomes that you will receive in this life, as well in future lifetimes

These Karmic outcomes enter our lives as specific situations and personal life experiences.

To make a positive future for yourself, live with awareness

World Of Beggars

…There is a belief, one can only give what is there in the inner side – so unless there is an overflowing of love, and the person totally contained in himself, how will he be ever expected to give this joy to others around?

 Except in the people close to God who have merged with the consciousness, can such a quality be felt; or else –

In a world of beggars, who will give?

All are empty in themselves, hungry for various things –

Greater name, more money, higher power

Simply the strong desire to tower above the rest of the humanity in what ever capacity – could even be in the mask of religion! –

So basically there is no joy to be found in any of the outer dimensions,  as we know them.

“Its” not out there; one has to move in, at the DOT, total in himself.

Till the time one is dependent on someone or something out there, lasting joy will never be experienced…
