Buddhist Mealtime Prayer

 

This food is the gift of the whole universe,
Each morsel is a sacrifice of life,
May I be worthy to receive it.
May the energy in this food,
Give me the strength,
To transform my unwholesome qualities

into wholesome ones.
 

I am grateful for this food,

May I realize the Path of Awakening,

For the sake of all beings.

Namo Amida Buddha.
