Welcome, baba ganoush!

A question for you: if döner makes you schöner, what does baba ganoush do for the dharma?

Neko ... gratitude!!

Well to anwser yr question, it's one step towards enlightenment thro' the sense door of taste.
However,  I'm a beginner... it may just be an impermanent samatha state, but one worth having, investigations continue...

Greetings joy happiness and great peace to all and praise to purple fruit!

Forgot to mention... i have powers too: i can make an imam faint.  Don't mess with the  BBQ Bhikkus!

It is an expression of mother's love & care, also bring good health to the physical body, which is a foundation for dharma practise. emoticon

I tell you, monks, there are two people who are not easy to repay. Which two? Mother & father.

hi nicky, i used to live close by a big turkish community, but yes you are right.


regardless of that... beware the law of unintended consequenses: now when i prepare to sit i start to salivate, not what i was planning for but at least it gives me something to work with.
