a little prayer to say before eating, we are omnivoires & we depend on all life in this ecosystem
so we should show appreciation for it, each other & be grateful for everything from the air & water to the creatures & plants we consume
Aum... Aum... Aum Sahana vavatu sahanau bhunaktu Sahaveeryam karavavahai TejasvinavadhitamastuMavid visha vahai Aum... Shanti Shanti Shantihi Let us be together. Let us eat together. Let us produce energy together. Let there be no limit to our energies. Let there be no ill-feeling among us. Aum... Peace, Peace, Peace.
I don't know where this is from but it's ancient I'm sure, I first read it in "A taste of Well-Being"
