“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.” – Mahatma Gandhi
“It is exclusively in Dharma that progress can be made on the spiritual path. Of all dharma, the most potent is feeding the hungry.”- Siddhar Rajaswamy
“Those who know the yogic grace of attainment know feeding the hungry as the heart’s most desired action and doing.”- Siddhar Bhairavasekar Swamy
“Empower yourself, dissolve your bad karma, awaken grace- through – feeding the hungry”- Saddhu Krishnaveni Amma
“Feed the hungry and know that realities too are directly enriched by the blessings of Dharma”- Siddhar Mahasivaswamy
“Worshiping with intense depth, consummate the prayers into profound realities- by the dharma of feeding”- Nandhiji
Ask any yogi saint in any corner in India, what leads to the grace of enlightenment and the journey beyond it and in uniformity they will say, ‘anna dhaanam’, ie, feeding the stomach fires of humans. Imagine yourself as a bird that has to find food each day and by divine grace, you do find the food for the stomach. The receiving of food is the sacred act, as though it is the Absolute providing for our need.
Most sages live like a bird, not worrying about the next meal and the meal they receive, they know it is from Source. By our act of providing the meal to any hungry stomach, we become the divine instrument that allows the cosmic energies to go back and forth through our human reality plan as in the receiving and the giving. This allows the ‘flow’ to happen.
This flow as the random thought of giving and as kindness allows our karmic human ignorance to dissolve. Pure Yoga is knowing the grace that flows from action.
