Savory Soul Food.
Michelle Baker, Co-owner and Founder of Swan River Yoga making a vegan meal for her parents.
See God everywhere: God is the ladle; God also is the food; God is the fire; God is the preparer; and God is the eater of the food. God is the reason for eating and God is the goal to be reached. Bhagavad Gita 4.24
Lokah Somasta Sukhinoh Bhavantu…. May all beings everywhere be happy and free is another one I often use, helping to spark and attract light into the body and soul being fed.
A sample of delectable vegan food made with love to go or stay in good company at Swan River Yoga Mandir in Md-City 2940 Canal street.
