**throwback picture ** this was a meal I helped make or prepare this year  to celebrate Lord Chaitanya's  appearance day (so much fun) it absolutely was as delicious as it looks in the picture. A traditional Indian feast made to offer to the lord 🙏
🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱 I had never eaten Indian food growing, living in California or even exposed to the flavors of Indian food or cooking- seems uncommon in the areas of California where i first started cooking in the restaurant industry. it wasn't until i moved to Hawaii to the big island and lived in a ashram (or rather a meditation center) dedicated to worshiping god and practicing livina yoga lifestyle, bhaktiyoga to be exact.  On the farm I learned how to prepare many traditional Indian foods such as sak, pakoras, chapati's, different dahls, indian desserts like rice pudding, sweet balls, ladoo mostly vegan but sometimes not.  Those few years were some of the best memories of my life. i learned so much on that farm: i learned how to cook Indian food, how to toast spices properly, i learned how to develop a personal mediation practice, as well as how to sell at a farmers market, and how to 🥑farm. ....................................................................
this farm is on the big island and currently at risk of being overtaken by the lava flow as it resides🌋 in Leilani estate. The threat is very real as a large crack just suddenly opened up with lava rushing to the surface, my friends are or should have been evacuated. This is a scary time not knowing the fate or what the damage could be to that area. My prayers and my 💗heart goes out to my friends there on the big island @punaalohafarms  I'm sure this is a really uncertain time for them and wellbeing of the amazing meditation center there.  Stay safe guys thinking of you, love you. hope those of you reading this keep the residence of Leilani estates in your mind and send them thoughts of support. -Namaste and Aloha 🙏✨ #prayersforbigisland #prayersforleilani #alohanamaste #islandflow #punaalohafarms #bhaktiyoga #mediationcenter #indianfood #vedicliving #yogalifestyle #indiancooking #tradionalindianfood #prayersforpuna

What is kirtan meditation?
Kirtan, the singing or chanting of sacred mantras, or Transcendental Sound, is an easy yet sublime method of yoga meditation that has been practiced since time immemorial. It is the recommended process for self-realization in the modern age and has the gradual effect of cleansing your heart and mind, helping you to awaken and cultivate your inherent wisdom and spiritual love.
