Sloka While Eating

Sloka While Eating

Eating is an important activity, which is required in order to
live. It is God, who has created each and every thing. Food, hunger, living
beings, all of them form the part of God’s creation. One should remember God,
the omnipresent, who has given both, sweet and sour delicacies to satisfy our
taste-buds. Following is the Sloka/ Shloka which can be recited while eating or
taking your food.
“Brahmaarpanam Brahma Havih Brahmaagnau Brahmana Hutam,

Brahmaiva Tena Gantavyam Brahmakarmasamaadhina”

Meaning: The accurate meaning of this mantra is: “A
practice of offering is Brahman, the oblation is Brahman, the device of offering
is Brahman, and the fire (hunger) to which the offering is made, is also
Brahman. For such a one, who abides in everything (Brahman), by him alone
Brahman is reached”.

Significance: Brahman refers to God himself.
This Shloka suggests that god is everywhere, in the food, inside the devotee and
even the hunger is God. So, devotee is taking the food (God) to the hunger
(God). To put succinctly, we always thank god for his divine grace.
