A reminder that we will show the movie Peaceable Kingdom at 7:30pm tonight, after the guided meditation session at our usual time of 6pm. If you can't stay for the movie, check out this 1 minute cute video of animals instead!


Want to practice what you discovered in the movie? It's easy! Did you know that almost every restaurant will have several good menu items made without animal products? The DUC even has a dedicated vegetarian section! And here's just some of what's available today at Cox Hall, for example: Falafel Taco. Fried Avocado Taco. (all tacos, burritos, and fajitas can be made with seasoned tofu or beans) Southwest Black Bean Burger. Spaghetti with Marinara and vegetables. Tofu and Fried Rice Stir Fry. Ramen Soup. Build-Your-Own Salads. Veggie Panini. Mediterranean Rice Bowl. Tomato Crepe. Hummus.

"The most exquisite food in the world, say many celebrated chefs, is being made not in Copenhagen or New York, but in a remote temple complex south of Seoul by a 59-year-old Buddhist nun." Even the New York Times food critic is on board!  http://www.nytimes.com/2015/10/16/t-magazine/jeong-kwan-the-philosopher-chef.html

Pu Xian Temple volunteers are also having a fundraiser, with hand-made veggie dumplings (素饺子) just $5 for 15, also other Chinese delicacies such as home-made bean curd (豆饼), spongy gluten (烤麸), and more! If you want to order any delivered to campus, you can let me know as well.
