Many participants in the past commented that the vegetarian food at our school (Mahans) was remarkably delicious. As the saying goes, “It’s not what you cook, but how you cook that matters”. At Mahans we cook with the “Di Zi Gui principles.” There are 7 chapters in the Di Zi Gui book, starting with Respecting and Loving our Parents at Home, Interacting with Others Away from Home, Being Mindful in Daily Life, Being Trustworthy, Loving All Being, Being Close to Kind and Virtuous People, After Doing the Above, the Arts Come Next. In this workshop, we will focus on the practice of “Being Mindful in Daily Life”. Information technology is well developed and recipes can easily be found from the internet, but in this workshop, we will learn how to cook with Di Zi Gui principles, learning new skills to cook and serve your family and friends.
