Meal Blessing

SHORT CHENREZIG MEAL BLESSING

THE BLESSING:

Visualize that the offerings are purified and increase.

OM AH HUNG

THE OFFERING PRAYER:

Remembering the Three Jewels, take refuge and offer the food visualized as a vast display.

TÖN PA LA MED SANGYE RINPOCHE

To the unsurpassed teacher, the precious Buddha,

KYOB PA LA MED DAM CHÖ RINPOCHE

To the unsurpassed refuge, the precious holy Dharma,

DREN PA LA MED GEN DÜN RINPOCHE

To the unsurpassed guide, the precious Sangha,

KYAB NE KÖN CHOG SUM LA CHÖD PA BÜL

This offering is made to the three supreme and rare Jewels of Refuge.

THE PRACTICE:

Visualize oneself as the Buddha of Compassion, Avalokiteshvara, white in color, with one face and four arms.  Two palms are pressed together at the heart and the outer two hands are holding a crystal mala in the right and a lotus in the left.  Adorned with jewels and silks, you are seated in the full lotus posture upon a lotus and moon seat.

JOWO KYÖN GYI MA GÖ KU DOG KAR

To the unstained Lord, whose body is white in color,

DZOG SANGYE KYI U LA GYEN

Whose head is adorned with a perfect Buddha,

THUG JE’I CHEN GYI DRO LA ZIG

Who views living beings with the eyes of compassion,

CHENREZIG LA SÖL WA DEB

To Avalokiteshvara I pray.

THE MANTRA RECITATION:

Recite the Mani Mantra as many times as possible.

OM MANI PEDME HUNG

While reciting the mantra, recall all sentient beings, who have passed away, especially those who lost their lives in the preparation of the meal, and generate compassion for them.  Expand your awareness to include even the insects that were harmed in the course of raising, transporting or cooking the vegetables and grains.  If one has received the empowerment of Avalokiteshvara, by this prayer and recitation one will maintain the samaya commitment.

THE DEDICATION:

Meditate that all beings attain the state of liberation through this prayer.

GEWA DI YI NYUR DU DAG

By the virtue of this practice, myself

CHENREZIG WANG DRUB GYUR NE

Accomplishing swiftly Lord Avalokiteshvara,

DRO WA CHIG KYANG MA LÜ PA

May all beings without exception

DE YI SA LA GÖD PAR SHOG

Be liberated to his level!

This concise food blessing was composed of various traditional Tibetan Buddhist prayers by the Venerable Gyaltrul Rinpoche for his students.  May it be of benefit.
