I am pleased to send my best wishes to the Hindu, Sikh and Jain communities in Britain who are celebrating the festival of Diwali.
Diwali, the festival of Lights, is observed right …
Nowhere in the thought or action of our Hindu Dharma, or way of life, do we ever say, “you MUST do this!”, or, “you MUST not do that!”. This is in all aspects of our lives, like in the society, in the home and even in the kitchen. Food is of great importance to all beings. It is essential for life. For plants, animals and for humans. Therefore it is importance that we understand and appreciate what our ancestors, texts and traditions felt about food, and why these ideas seem to be timeless.
