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.

Himalayan Tradition

The tradition of the Himalayan sages is an unbroken chain that extends for thousands of years, a living tradition that still exists today, undisturbed by the passage of time. Rooted in the wisdom shared in the Vedas, Upanishads, Tantra, and Yoga, the Himalayan Tradition is dedicated to sharing the experience of that truth which is eternal and universal.
