Product Details


The Compassionate Kitchen offers a very rich menu of Buddhist theory and practice concerning food and culture surrounding food. From the appetizer of the background philosophical principles and perspectives on food, to the main entries of the proper conduct and mind-set while eating, to the choicest desserts of dedication prayers and concluding rituals, it captures a complete treatment of the Buddhist concept of food in an easily digestible manner.”—-Geshe Dadul Namgyal, Senior Resident Teacher, Drepung Loseling Monastery

“This precious book reveals mealtime as meditation, and cooking and dining as sacred offerings to the noble ones.  Ven. Chodron generously guides us to transform once and for all our relationship with food.  A fresh and unique treasure!”—Judith Simmer-Brown, Distinguished Professor, Naropa University and author of Dakini’s Warm Breath:  The Feminine Principle in Tibetan Buddhism
