Even non-Buddhists can benefit from adopting and adapting the recipes from Buddhist Peace Recipes to suit their requirements.

Buddhist Repast

The Realm of Buddhist food encompasses more than half of humanity. From the land of its birth India the gospel spread to Sri Lanka when the children of Emperor Ashoka Mahendra and Sangmitra carried it with them. In subsequent centuries the new faith traveled to Burma, Thailand, Cambodia, and Indonesia. Intrepid monks and scholars conveyed the message of the Enlightened one to china via Tibet wherefrom it reached Mongolia Japan and Korea.

In one of his sermons the Buddha compares the human body to a string in the musical instrument veena if it is stretched too tight imposing on it a hard ascetic discipline of self denial it may break and it is allowed to hang loose, following the path of least resistance it cannot create any music. An individual aspiring to nirvana blissful liberation cannot afford to forget this.

The essence of the Buddha’s teachings in encapsulated in Majibina patipada the middle path. If desire the root cause of all distress and misery is to be conquered we must lead perfectly balanced lives avoiding all excess and ensuring that nothing disturbs the tranquility of our mind. The body according to the Buddhists must be properly nourished and kept free from painful diseases that can only distract the mind from sadhana (practice). This can only be ensured if the body is healthy and the mind free from fear and other negative emotions like lust greed, and anger. Emotional disturbances are often caused and always aggravated by inappropriate food. For the Buddhists food is an integral part of their sadhana. Like right thought and right livelihood right food can complement and facilitate right contemplation.

This is the foundation of the Buddhist culinary philosophy. Buddhism does not preach denial or forced abstinence. It is true that the monks are expected to lead austere live but their dietary regimen is not supposed to be followed by the lay.

The Buddhist culinary philosophy is rooted in the teachings of Ayurveda the ancient Indian science of life. According to Ayurveda all of us represent a physical and personality type displaying the predominance of a particular guna (property). There are three basic properties satva, and tamas that may be roughly translated as tranquil energetic and inert. These properties are also discernible in ingredients of food. Another concept that is crucial is of tridosha the three basic impurities kapha (phlegm) pitta (bile) and vatat (nervous energy). These correspond in a loose manner with the elements earth fire and air. These key ideas are also found in the texts of Tibetan medicine and the Chinese yin and yang. In Tibetan medicinal texts the three dosha are referred to as nyes-pa elung, mkhris-pa and Bad kan corresponding with vata pitta and kappa respectively.

It is not just Ayurveda that has provided the base for Buddhist thinking on food indigenous tradition and dietary practices in different lands it traveled to have mediated and spurred on its evolution. The inheritance of Buddhist food is truly pan Asian.

All physical disorders the Buddhists believe result from impaired digestion and faulty distribution of nutrients to different vital organs. The cure often entails consumption of special foods to redress the imbalance. Tibetans believe it is essential to make a lifelong commitment to a healthy dietary regime.

I fall in love with Exotic India last year when I found accidentally a beautiful blue kaftan with a little printed elephant on it. Since then I am a fan of this lovely place and I am sure that I will be a lifetime. I feel that my relation with Exotic India is special because I like every article, they are unique, made with passion and each piece relates a magical, mythical story. I want to thank you for your promptitude by shipping so fast my order, it arrived directly from India to Romania (Transylvania) on the fourth day after I have set my order. I did not expect it so soon, my heart was filled with joy by such an amazing surprise. I appreciated it! I wish all the joy and beauty you bring to me turn back to you!
Noemi
I would like to thank Exotic India for the very superior packaging and shipment of my order. Much appreciated! The order arrived very quickly. Many thanks!! I will always check Exotic India first for books in the future.

Hello Vipin K., thanks a lot for replacing the 4th volume of the Srimad Bhagavatam and sending me a faultless copy of the book so fast. The faulty pagination (missing and mixed up pages) is due to the bookbinding, of course, you are not to blame. Your customer service is excellent. And as your selection of books is extraordinary, I'm already looking forward to the next books that will reach me, perfectly packed and in best condition as always. ;-)
Walter
