Cooking lovingly! Cooking meditatively! Cooking for Buddhas! Cooking for the transformation of human consciousness is ‘
Cooking Taoshobuddha way or Buddha Way
!’ It is indeed cooking for Buddhas. A strange,yet still a meaningful title for a cook!
ooking lovingly! Cooking meditatively! Cooking for Buddhas!Cooking Taoshobuddha way or Buddha way or cookingforBuddhas means the same thing. It is indeed a strange yet still ameaningful title for a cook book. It says a lot. And this is the beauty of it. First let me explain something of the title. Taoshobuddha is anenlightened master. Very rarely a master goes into cooking or doessomething like this. Although each master remains particular abouteating food cooked by each and every one yet no effort was ever made inthe past in this direction. When I asked Taoshobuddha about this, verypleasantly in his usual manner he said something that reveals thecompassion of a master. Only an enlightened one can say such a thing.This is what he said:
“Cooking Taoshobuddha means ‘Cooking for Buddha’; ‘Cookinglovingly’; ‘Cooking meditatively’. Only then there can be totaltransformation of human consciousness. Only then we can create a newman who is balanced both inner and outer.
Life is a journey of transcendence. It is a moment to moment journey of awareness.As such man exists at three planes. In ordinary human being theseplanes remain muddled. And because of this there is no clarity and inwardjourney gets impeded.
