Food Blessing Prayer

Before you eat or drink, say the following prayer:

TON PA LAMEY SANGEY RINPOCHE
KYO PA LAMEY TAM CHO RINPOCHE
DREN PA LAMEY GENDUN RINPOCHE
KYAP NEY KON CHOK SUM LA CHOPA BUL

KHA SEY MIN DANG DA WAR RIK PA YI

GYAK CHIR MA LAK NYIK PEY CHIR MA LAK
TSAK CHIR MA LAK LU NEY BA SHIK CHIR

Translation:

I offer the essence of this food to the Three Precious Jewels:
  The Precious Buddha,
  The Precious Dharma,
  The Precious Sangha.

Please bless this food that we may take it as a medicine,
With our minds free from attachment and desire.
May it nourish our bodies so that we can work
for the benefit of all sentient beings.
