Description
Preface

There are certain things we just do better, with more ease, Tasks that fill us with joy and we excel at, Everyone is blessed with their own talents, their skills and their passions. When we are good at, we are most efficient and stress-free. In turn, the results are generally ideal, we accomplish the task with a great sense of satisfaction and we are not in any way taxed. Therefore, it is natural for us to want to gravitate towards these kinds of tasks and with habitual practice, we find we are constantly improving. This, in the Hindu scriptures is called swa-dharma, performing tasks and actions that are complementary to our in- built temperament or nature. To find our swa-dharma and to work in line with it, fortifies and reinforces our spiritual evolution.

To achieve swa-dharma, we need not escape to an ashram or a monastery, we need not exchange our everyday clothes for orange robes nor do we need to sit in solitary confinement chanting incessantly. We can unfold in our spiritual quest everyday as we go about our daily routine. This most practical, accessible and easily performed spirituality is called karma yoga. To find one's passion and talent and to work in line with it is a key ingredient in Karma Yoga. However, simply performing the action is not enough, it must be accompanied by an alteration of one's attitude while performing the action.

Before we engage ourselves in an action or a task, we very often base our decision on the end result of that action If the act brings us immense pleasure or in any way suits our personal agenda, we tend to engage ourselves in those acts or tasks. This type of action is self-benefitting and limited. However, if that very same act is undertaken not for one's own benefit or pleasure in mind, but as a service to humanity or with the thought of a higher cause in mind, that very same act of worship.

A group of ladies, predominantly housewives, who regularly cook for their husbands, children friends and neighbours endeavored to direct passion, talent, skill and knowledge to compile a cookbook to honor their Guru, Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda, with a view to dedicate what they did best, in order, to serve a greater cause of encouraging vegetarianism, non-violence and eco-friendliness. Recipes were created to cater to many different needs-to those who want a healthier meatless lifestyle, to those who want to enterain at home and those who want a bit more variety in their family meals.

In doing this Project, their actions evolved from Swa-dharma to Karma yoga, from work to worship. The result is this very informative cookbook, an offering by all involved, at the feel of Pujya Gurudev, Swami Chinmayananda.

A heartfelt gratitude to all those who have contributed to this book in big ways and little, and have chosen, in the spirit of Karma yoga, to remain nameless. Cook, Nourish, Enjoy!!

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I just wanted to say that this is I think my 3rd (big) order from you, and the last two times I received immaculate service, the books arrived well and it has been a very pleasant experience. Just wanted to say thanks for your efficient service.

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
