One cannot escape from the realities of living in this world. Meditation does not provide a means of escape but heightens the level of awareness of ourselves in relation to the world. Little joys of the senses are savoured in mindful cognition bringing about a quiet contentment.
The Cultural Village will have a predominantly Himalayan setting, infusing local cultural elements with a modern twist. There can be unity in diversity.
Like manna from heaven, our signature vegetarian restaurant promises to bring more than sustenance to the hungry pilgrim. Lovingly prepared by chefs who view their craft as spiritual practice, every delicious morsel is a celebration of life and an expression of gratitude for the precious chance to serve others.
Congruent with the principle of treating all beings with kindness, it goes without saying that advocating vegetarianism is the best testimony that we practice what we preach. There are ample reasons for being vegetarian as in being so, we avoid harming animals, our health, and the environment. We cannot in our current capacity save all beings from harm but we can do our part. It makes perfect sense to want to significantly improve our health, dramatically reduce our environmental footprint, and greatly lessening the suffering of animals, just by choosing to be vegetarian. Our signature kitchen allows you to enjoy delicious tastes and textures you are used to, minus the guilt.
