Radha and Krishna Feeding Each Other in the Glade
Western India, 19th century*
Desserts & Snacks can come in spiritual flavors. There are times when the hearty meal or novel fare just doesn't appeal to our taste buds. Instead, we hunger for small after-dinner tidbits, simple comfort food, the treats of childhood. Here are some assorted tasty morsels and indulgences for times of spiritual play (and, no calories!).
Please visit our Main Courses and Guest Caterer Specials for heavier meals. Also, don't forget our earlier offerings, stored in the Soul Food Archive. Your comments are always welcome. Read others' comments about this page.
As in earlier Desserts and Snacks pages, we include here a truly mysterious picture!
Just so you’ll know, this is a photo of a dear friend from the Vedanta Community of Hollywood, California. On a beautiful day in Yosemite, he made a new friend with whom to enjoy the Bhagavad Gita.
~ If I had an (inner) animal companion, what would that be?
~ Just as the monk is sharing a typical experience with his friend, what ordinary activity might I be found doing with my animal companion?
[For those interested in the possibility of the Buddha-nature appearing in bear form, there's even a Smokey the Bear Sutra*--from interfaith to interspecies!]

Your desserts were a delightful ending to my St. Joseph's day. Thank you for so many insights into my inner world.
