I know it is hot. The last thing anyone wants to do is stoke up the kitchen fires. But it has been such a busy summer here, that by the time August arrived and we had a chance to slow down, all I wanted for a few days was my staple comfort food ~ simple, easy-to-make, balancing Kichari!
The following weekend we were immensely blessed by the visit of H.H. Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji and Sadhvi Bhagawatiji who graced our community with a divine Talk and Darshan, and graced our home with a sweet interlude. They also got Summer Kichari, by request!
Sadhviji just wrote a book on Swamiji’s big saintly, humanitarian life, an extraordinary, sumptuous book that is perhaps the most beautiful and most inspiring book I have ever seen. Because they are monks and chose not to profit from it, the book is also very inexpensive and goes on sale online today. I really recommend it.
What a blessing to be able to nourish these divine beings and, for all the ways they nourish us, to feed them our love and gratitude with healing, nurturing kichari.
I wish you too to be divinely nourished!
