Mantra before taking food

This verse from the Bhagavad-Gita [chapter4 verse 24] is a very popular Hindu Mantra which is recited before taking food.

The meaning of this Mantra is-He the one who eats the food is the Brahman [ever-existent], he is eating [offering] the food which is also the Brahman to the ever- existent fire [the stomach] which is also the Brahman. He seeks nothing but harmony and peace not only in himself but everywhere.

This is deep and profound Spiritual meditation on the inner self, meditation on the inner self which is nothing but a part of the over self. All activities including eating food are activities of the Brahman [ever-existent]
