     “The great compassionate mind is the Buddha’s Mind. The spirit of Buddhism is compassion and equality. If we wish to attain a mind of compassion and equality, first, we must not kill; second, we must save and protect lives; third, we must practice vegetarianism. If we can accomplish all three, our compassionate mind will-by Grand master Wei Chueh  manifest.”

Five Contemplations Before A Meal 食存五觀

Our translation team worked on a translation of the Five Contemplations which is used before we take meals in the monastery:

                                          This offering is the fruit of many's work and care;
                                          Reflecting on my conduct, "Am I worthy of a share?"
                                          Be wary of the poisons, the foremost being greed;
                                          Seeing food as medicine, I take only what I need,
                                          Solely for cultivation, to realize the Buddha Way.
                                          With gratitude I accept this offering today.

(It is slightly modified from the excellent version Shifu from Rev. Heng Sure of the Berkeley Buddhist Monastery.)
