ब्रह्मार्पणं ब्रह्म हविर्ब्रह्माग्नौ ब्रह्मणाहुतम् ।
ब्रह्मैव तेन गन्तव्यं ब्रह्म कर्म समाधिना ।।
By God it is offered into the Fire of God
God is that which is to be attained by him
who performs action pertaining to God
This is the mantra from Bhagava Githa. Usually used before food.
The Ayurvedic viewpoint on food is interesting and unique.The major difference in relation with other modalities of food and nutrition is, Ayurveda emphasizes more about considering Agni (the digestive fire) and the natural type of a person in respect to the Doshas (Prakriti). I would like to explain in a precise way is about the different qualities of food and the important things to consider on your choice.
According to the Indian classics, food is considered as God.In Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna says, he himself reside inside us as Agni(representation of Fire or simply said hunger).So the food we eat should be given in dedication for the God inside us.
