Cooking good food For the greed of their stomachs Are eaters of sin.”

Standard

The good eat
What the gods leave behind
After the offering
And get relief from sin.
But the ungodly,
Cooking good food
For the greed of their stomachs
Are eaters of sin.”

Swami Satchidananda:

“You should have seen the look on Yudhishthira’s face. He was truly crestfallen. It’s not the pomp and show that counts, but the quality and depth of your heart in the worship that’s important. In the Pandava’s Yajna, there was undoubtedly an attitude of worship, but probably it was mingled with a little bit of pride. The poor family had nothing but humility in their offering. In this light we can observe our own actions. They might look charitable, but are they really? Do they have that touch of selflessness? If our actions are like that, we are already free. We may still be in human form walking around like everybody else, but we are God incarnate on the face of the Earth. That’s the greatness of Karma Yoga.”

Sri Eknath Easwaran:

“What is important is what we do with the energy that food gives us. As Jesus told the Pharisees, ‘Not what goes into the mouth defiles a person, but what comes out of it.’ Of what use is it to consume hand-cultivated, organically grown food if we act violently or use resentful language? If, instead, we use our vitality to help others to wipe away their tears, our eyes will shine and our lives will become a source of strength in a deeply troubled world.”
