True Teachings of The Awakened One

 

A Meal

Translated from the Pali by

Thanissaro Bhikkhu

Whenever one gives the gift of food, five wonderful things are also given, automatically, to both giver and recipient alike. [Often chanted by monks as a blessing after receiving food or other offerings.]

“In giving a meal, the donor gives five things to the recipient. Which five? He/she gives life, beauty, happiness, strength, & quick-wittedness. Having given life, he/she has a share in long life, either human or divine. Having given beauty, he/she has a share in beauty, either human or divine. Having given happiness, he/she has a share in happiness, either human or divine. Having given strength, he/she has a share in strength, either human or divine. Having given quick-wittedness, he/she has a share in quick-wittedness, either human or divine. In giving a meal, the donor gives these five things to the recipient.”

The prudent person giving life, strength,

               beauty, quick-wittedness β€”

the wise person, a giver of happiness β€”

               attains happiness himself.

Having given life, strength, beauty,

               happiness, & quick-wittedness,

he has long life & status

               wherever he arises.
