See Them Fast! See Them Handstand!

While I continue to eat (after all, one does not stop eating on the spiritual platform. In fact eating gets better), here in Athens Soma, Balarama, and Jason are smack dab in the middle of the Master Cleanse fast.

This means nothing but lemonade and limeade touched with maple syrup and cayenne pepper for ten days, and a lot of pooping! It's potent!

Don't try this at home!

Mixing the magic all up!



All this doesn't stop Balarama from rocking the handstands...

Vegan Cooking! ( my Hindi...Wegan Cooking!)

It's a Tuesday tradition six years running here on the campus of Ohio University. The world famous Vegan Cooking Workshop! In case you need to catch up, here's a couple of movies we made about it last here (made by yours truly and made by HG Sri-Kishore Prabhu-ji)

Balarama welcomed everyone warmly to the Mediterraean feast (falafel, pitas, tabouli, red pepper hummus! and baklava straight from Mother Yasoda's kitchen), and also promoted our weekly meditation discussions by saying that "everyone needs a little meditation to fight the fear being imposed on us by the amero."

Fight the power! Here's some pics...

Tour De Athens

I came to Athens to chant 192 rounds a day, continue my vrata of drinking organic sodas, and to write long-winded blogs, whilst also planning to cut the occasional vegetable and wash the occasional pot. Yesterday I impulsively tore myself out of this routine for what I thought would be a nice bike ride around town with the Transcendental Chaps, but 25 miles later, I realized that that austerity really is the wealth of my life! Here's some pics!

As usual, in this time of year, Conscious Ohio and the Vegan Cooking Workshop are dominating the scene at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio.

Balarama Chandra Prabhu and the Loyal Tulasi-Bead Necklace Wearing Crew (Mauricio, Sri Kishore, Tess, Naren, Jason, Garrison, Sam, etc!) are feeding the hungry students of this prestigious Mid-American institution of educations with food for the stomach and for the soul.

Myself, the sometimes humble overseer of the blog, will be here for the next month documenting the flavor of it all.

So, let's begin as always, with the visual proof...

Soma is "Master Cleansing", and is in the process here...
