Food Prayer from Bhagavad Gita

ब्रह्मार्पणं ब्रह्म हविर्ब्रह्माग्नौ ब्रह्मणाहुतम् । ब्रह्मैव तेन गन्तव्यं ब्रह्म कर्म समाधिना ।।

Brahmārpañam Brahma Havir BrahmāgnauBrahmañāhutaṃ, Brahmaiva Tena Gantavyam BrahmakarmāSamādhinah.

The whole creation being the gross projection of Brahman, the Cosmic Consciousness itself; the food too is Brahman, the process of offering it is Brahman; it is being offered in the fire of Brahman.

Yoga School & Premises

In an Ashram, simplicity permeates every aspect of life, including food, accommodation, daily routines, community interactions, and spiritual practices. Sattvic food is central to the Ashram's diet, emphasizing purity, freshness, and nourishment. Meals are prepared with care and gratitude, using natural ingredients sourced locally or from the Ashram's own garden.

Accommodation in the Ashram is modest and reflective of the principle of simplicity. Residents typically have simple rooms furnished with only the essentials, fostering a sense of minimalism and contentment. Cleanliness and tranquility prevail, creating a conducive environment for reflection and inner exploration.

Life in the Ashram revolves around a structured yet serene routine, guided by principles of discipline and mindfulness. Daily activities include meditation, yoga, self-study, and service (Seva) to the community. Silence is often observed during meals, allowing residents to savor their food mindfully and cultivate a deeper connection with themselves and the present moment.

The Ashram's library is a treasure trove of wisdom, featuring a diverse collection of spiritual texts, philosophical teachings, and literature from various traditions. Residents are encouraged to spend time in the library, engaging in self-study and reflection to deepen their understanding and practice.

A meditation hall serves as the heart of the Ashram, providing a sacred space for individuals to come together and cultivate inner peace and stillness. Regular group meditation sessions and spiritual gatherings foster a sense of unity and shared purpose among the community members.

Outside the meditation hall, a generous garden flourishes with a variety of fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers. Residents participate in tending to the garden, cultivating a sense of connection to the earth and the cycles of nature. The garden also serves as a reminder of the abundance and beauty inherent in a life of simplicity and harmony with the natural world.

In essence, life in an Ashram is a holistic journey of self-discovery, inner transformation, and spiritual growth, guided by the principles of simplicity, mindfulness, and community living. Through the practice of Sattvic food, meditation, and service, residents cultivate a deeper connection with themselves, others, and the divine, fostering a sense of peace, purpose, and fulfillment in their lives.
