饭前思

 

这份食物是来自地球,上天及有情众生的恩惠,是大家辛勤劳作的爱心结晶。

愿我们享受美食时保持正念和感恩之心,以此表达对这份食物的敬意。

愿我们认识并改变不健康的习性,特别转化我们的贪念,学会适度饮食。

愿我们心怀感恩地享受这份美食,觉知这样爱的方式可以减少众生的痛苦,可以遏制加剧气候变化,治愈并保护我们珍贵的地球。

愿我们接受这份食物的恩泽时,手足相长,共建分享社区,滋养为地球众生服务的心念。

 

Contemplations before eating

 

This Food is a gift of the earth, the sky, numerous living beings, and

Much hard and loving work

May we eat with mindfulness and gratitude so as to

honour this food.

May we recognize and transform

unwholesome mental formations,

especially our greed and learn to eat with moderation.

May we keep our compassion alive

by eating in such a way that reduces the suffering of

living beings, stop contributing to climate change, and heals

and preserves our precious planet.

We accept this food so that we may nurture

our sisterhood and brotherhood, build

our community, and nourish our ideal

of serving all living beings.

- Seen in Schumacher College adapted from Thich Nhat Hanh

此饭前思摘自英国舒马赫学院(Schumahcer College)的地球盖娅素食厨房(The Gaia Kitchen),源自一行禅师语录。其生态素食哲学为:时令蔬食(seasonal food),当地供应(local food),有机食材 (organic food),师生共同烹饪(community cooking)。

你可以饭前如是念诵一遍,然后带着正念饮食,让善念与观照在我们的心中增长,为世界带来美好与和平。
