how slow food, mindful cooking and vegetarian eating can nourish the spirit as well as the body
This is cooking with heart.
Although mindfulness has become a strategy for losing weight, for women behind these chopsticks --Jeong Kwan —
There is a higher purpose.
Guan MS is a Buddhist nun who grows and prepares food for her fellow initiates at chunjinnan Palace, a temple in Baekyangsa, South Korea.
She uses cooking as a meditation: slowly, methodically and deliberately nourish the spirit and body by choosing and preparing food.
Her attitude towards food became famous in a episode of the popular Netflix show, chef\'s table --
Although she called herself a cook, not a cook.
She only uses the most basic ingredients and only eats the specific dishes she needs and never wastes.
When she uses each of the ingredients, she communicates with them, gently cupping mushrooms, and slowly and carefully chopping lotus roots.
Guan MS told RN\'s soul search through translation, \"there is difficulty in spiritual communication . \".
\"The consumption of food is a direct way of communication because it is visual and physical.
\"Preparation and presentation is as important as adding ingredients and flavors, helping to get the overall experience of the food.
Like many Buddhists, Guan MS is also preparing vegetarian food, but this is not the case.
Some readings of the scriptures suggest that monks sometimes eat meat during the Buddha period.
Many people will benefit from the nutritional methods of Buddhism, MS Guan said.
\"In the 21 st century, people put the brain first in the body,\" she said . \"\"The process [of cooking]. . .
Considered annoying and troublesome.
So when we eat fast food, there is no mindfulness around the food.
\"In her view, when we were separated from the cooking process, we were neither physically cultivated nor mentally cultivated.
The attitude of eating for the spirit --
Avoid harm in the pursuit of a balanced diet
It is the common belief of many religions.
For followers of Jain religion, it extends to protect all life, including insects that are invisible to the naked eye.
In the strictest form, Jains does not eat root vegetables, onions and garlic to prevent the death of small bugs that may be hurt during excavation.
That\'s why, as she grew up, the Indian singer Namita Mehta had never eaten onions and garlic at home.
Jains follow veganism as part of their commitment to the non-veganism principle ahimsaviolence.
As the largest creatures and those most capable of hurting, humans have a unique responsibility in gianism to take care of other creatures.
For the benefit of these \"little creatures we take care of\", Dr. Mehta said, some Jains would wear a piece of white cloth in their mouths to avoid accidentally swallowing insects.
Jains believes in reincarnation, and as her husband Rahul says, all creatures have \"the same soul \". . . [I]
Animals can be born today and insects can be born tomorrow \".
However, being born as human beings has brought about a unique possibility --
The opportunity to liberate --
Once a person balances karma, she or he will achieve this.
Dr. Mehta defined moksha as \"freedom from birth and death\" with neither negative nor positive karmic contributions --
Only one country can be realized through various reincarnation.
While eastern religions like Ji \'an and some Buddhist traditions have a long history of vegetarian diets, these diets have also attracted Christians.
David Crawford, professor of theological ethics at the University of Chester, became a vegetarian at the age of 18 and understood that his transition to vegetarianism was a spiritual process.
He grew up in a Methodist family in England, but he said there was no long Methodist history in his family or church to discuss animal welfare.
In the last decade, when he was researching and writing two of his books,
Part of the book on animals, did he learn about the Methodist background of a person who started RSPCA in 19th-century England.
\"If you have a faith and believe in a God, he is the God who created all creatures. . .
\"You have a basic commitment to acknowledge that everything God has created is fundamentally a state of common creation,\" he said . \".
Dr. Crawford is now eating vegetarian food out of a moral concern for animals that \"do not have a prosperous life.
When he was a teenager, it was an experience of hiking with friends, reinforcing his affinity with animals.
\"I climbed up a hill and I turned around and there was a reindeer deer standing five metres away,\" he said . \".
\"It felt like we looked at each other\'s eyes for a few hours, but it must have been a few seconds ago, very calm and stag deer turned and walked away. \" Topics:diet-and-
