"So that the grace and the practices and teachings of meditation in our lineage may continue into next generations and meditation may become a family-centered experience.”
– Swami Veda Bharati
People of all ancient cultures have the concept of ‘food as a worship offering’. It is one of the commonest expressions of ‘sacredness’ in India. It is known by different names in different parts of the country. It comes under the category of punya-arjana, ‘earning good karma’. In a country like Thailand where thousands of monks may be fed, the English translation for this category of acts is ‘merit-making’. Not merry-making but ‘merit-making’.
