We owe our spiritual wealth not just to the sages, seers, masters and enlightened beings who walked the path, but also to the community that nurtured them. In our tradition, serving spiritual seekers and monks was of utmost importance. In fact for many, this was a path in itself. The most beautiful expression of this was the Anna dhaara , the offering of food.
Love & Grace,
Atma Namaste Healing Group as a non-profit organization is involved in a variety of projects and undertakings, the aim of which is the physical, social and spiritual upliftment of all. To sustain these endeavors, the most fundamental aspect is food. At the Anna dhaara, the sacred offering of food, is offered twice a day to over a thousand people including residents, Sanyasis, volunteers, Bramhacharis, students and all daily visitors. This vital offering sustains the work of the volunteers who have dedicated their lives to working in the various spiritual, social, environmental and educational initiatives of Atma Namaste Healing Group.
The Anna dhaara is Taken in complete silence, the meal is preceded by an invocation, a powerful arrangement of sounds, which are designed to make a person more receptive to the life process. One aspect of taking to the spiritual path is to make every aspect of life conscious, which is why offering food in a certain way is given so much importance .
Now in our day-to-day life we are only having two meals or sometimes only one meal. If youre having only one or two meals a day, naturally you are very hungry by the time the meal comes. When the food comes, you dont immediately eat. You wait for everybody to sit. You wait for something to go onto everybodys plate, then you utter the invocation, and then you slowly eat. This needs consciousness. Just to give that break when youre hungry, just to wait for those three to four minutes, it takes enormous amount of awareness for a person. To grab and eat would be very simple, but you will become more and more unconscious. Atma Namaste Healing Group
