A Buddhist Grace
by Thich Nhat Hanh
This food is the gift of the whole universe-
the earth, the sky, and much hard work.
May we live in a way
that is worthy of this food.
May we transform our
unskillful states of mind,
especially that of greed.
May we eat only foods that
nourish us and prevent illness.
May we accept this food for the realization
of the way of understanding and love.
