The Yoga of Offering Food
All the things we do -- eating, walking, washing, working, talking -- everything can become very powerful methods for quickly achieving enlightenment. As we purify ourselves and collect extensive merit, we bring ourselves closer to enlightenment every minute of every day. In this way, we make our lives most beneficial, meaningful, satisfying and fulfilling. Through the Mahayana practice of offering the food we eat which is based on the Hinayana and adorned with the Vajrayana our lives become most beneficial, not only for ourselves but for all sentient beings.
This is a short practice, made to be easily accomplished wherever you go.
