Annadata Sukhi Bhava

Tuesday, November 06, 2018

‘Annadata Sukhi Bhava' means “Those who are providing me with this food, let them be happy’. When you say this, you are wishing prosperity for three people. One is to the farmer; the second is to the trader who buys from the farmers and sells the produce, and the third is to the people who cook the food and serve it to you.

First, we wish well for the FARMERS. When the farmers are happy, then the ones who eat the food will also be happy. But, if the farmers are unhappy, and they are shedding tears and giving us food, then when we eat that food, we become sick. So, you must wish the farmers good health and happiness.

Then we should wish well for the people who cook the food and serve it to us. There should be no tears in the eyes of the person who is cooking the food. It is not going to do you any good.

If you really look at it, the true ANNADATA (the Giver of Food) is none other than GOD himself. And GOD is always happy and content. Does GOD ever become unhappy?

No! Yet, at the level of this gross material world that we are in, we pray to GOD who is the ultimate nurturer, for the HAPPINESS and well-being of these three people who help to provide us with food. We all should CHANT this every day, both before and after our meals.

Bless them BEFORE and AFTER you have had your food.

    — Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
