Bhagavad Gita 4.24
This illuminating verse from the Bhagavad Gita reminds us of the highest reality (Brahman) as we cook, serve, and eat our food. This activity, the Gita tells us, is an offering to the highest reality, is pervaded by that reality, and supports us in attaining that reality. This prayer is chanted before lunch—the main meal of the day—in the Himalayan Institute kitchen.
