Baaj Jamvani — Grace before a Meal —A Translation With Text

BAAJ JAMVANI — A GRACE BEFORE THE MEAL—A TRANSLITERATION

Baaj Jamvani is to be Prayed before starting your meal whether small or big.  The Baaj Jamvani may be likened  to the Grace the Christians say before their meal as a thanksgiving to God for providing one with His Grace and Bounty, but it is a lot more. The act of eating itself is in praise of the Ultimate and his manifestations that make this world in keeping with the Eternal Laws, the Law of Nature.

PAINTING BY FRANZ VON DEFREGGER

Jamvani in Gujarati means ‘of eating’.

TRANSLITERATION:

In the name of the venerated/revered one, bestower of boons/gifts, the absolver, grant me your grace O Hormazd, the self-manifested/one created of his own accord

So, then, we celebrate Hormazd who wrought life in keeping with the Eternal Laws; and also the waters , the  vegetation, the luminous daylight and all that is good (created in keeping with Asha).

(Pray after the meal).
