(First Mantra): Before taking food, we need to think about the purpose for which we want to save and grow our body. God, I pray to you that my body, wealth and my mind should always work for the service of Vishwa Dharma.

(Second Mantra from the Gita): The items we use to feed ourselves are Brahman. The food itself is Brahman. The fire of hunger we feel is Brahman. We are Brahman and the process of eating and digesting the food is the action of Brahman. Finally, the result we obtain is Brahman. Bhagavad Gita


(Third Mantra): Let us protect each other. Let us eat together. Let us work together. Let us study together to be bright and successful. Let us not hate each other.

Aum Peace, Peace, Peace
