Meal time grace

At meal times, pausing to utter a grace internally or externally is balancing for the mind a quality of a sattvic mind Sanskrit (sattvic guna = harmonious quality).  Here are a few that will center you well before meals. 

Mealtime Grace 

From Love and God 

by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

 

 

In Thy fullness my Lord, 

Filled with Thy Grace,

For the purpose of union with Thee,

And to satisfy and glorify Thy creation,

With thanks to Thee with all our hearts

And with all our love for Thee,

With all adoration for Thy blessings,

We accept Thy gifts as they have come to us.

The food is Thy blessing, and in Thy service,

We accept in all gratitude, my Lord.

 

 

The Prayer To Our Father

(translated into first century Aramaic)

Abwûn

"Oh Thou, from whom the breath of life comes,

d'bwaschmâja

who fills all realms of sound, light and vibration.

Nethkâdasch schmach

May Your light be experienced in my utmost holiest.

Têtê malkuthach.

Your Heavenly Domain approaches.

Nehwê tzevjânach aikâna d'bwaschmâja af b'arha.

Let Your will come true - in the universe (all that vibrates)

just as on earth (that is material and dense).

Hawvlân lachma d'sûnkanân jaomâna.

Give us wisdom (understanding, assistance) for our daily need,

Waschboklân chaubên wachtahên aikâna

daf chnân schwoken l'chaijabên.

detach the fetters of faults that bind us, (karma)

like we let go the guilt of others.

Wela tachlân l'nesjuna

Let us not be lost in superficial things (materialism, common temptations),

ela patzân min bischa.

but let us be freed from that what keeps us off from our true purpose.

Metol dilachie malkutha wahaila wateschbuchta l'ahlâm almîn.

From You comes the all-working will, the lively strength to act,

the song that beautifies all and renews itself from age to age.

Amên.

Sealed in trust, faith and truth.

(I confirm with my entire being)

Prayers of the Cosmos

O Birther! Father- Mother of the Cosmos

Focus your light within us - make it useful.

Create your reign of unity now-

through our fiery hearts and willing hands

Help us love beyond our ideals

and sprout acts of compassion for all creatures.

Animate the earth within us: we then

feel the Wisdom underneath supporting all.

Untangle the knots within

so that we can mend our hearts' simple ties to each other.

Don't let surface things delude us,

But free us from what holds us back from our true purpose.

Out of you, the astonishing fire,Returning light and sound to the cosmos. Amen.
