By Jay Raman : We owe our spiritual wealth not just to the sages, seers, masters and enlightened beings who walked the path, but also to the community that nurtured them. In our tradition, serving spiritual seekers and monks was of utmost importance. In fact for many, this was a path in itself. The most beautiful expression of this was the Annadhanam, the offering of food.
Karma Kitchen is an initiative by Hindu council of Australia to serve the needy and homeless by serving free food in Parramatta region. Hindu Council has registered with Parramatta Council for offering food every week on Saturdays. This initiative gives opportunity to member organisations and individuals to serve and give back something to community. It is also a way to share our food which is an essential part of our culture. Hindu Council hopes to increase the frequency in the coming year.
A number of organisations and individuals have helped in the initial start-up by donating food, time and resources. This will open up new opportunities to serve people in need through different ways. Important occasions in your life such as a birthdays, anniversaries or any other day of your choice, can be an opportunity to offer Annadanam, and be a part of Hindu Council’s endeavor to spread joy, health and wellbeing in the community.
You are welcome to contact the Coordinators – Sai Pravtsu on 0402 449 524 and please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org, if you are interested to participate, donate or have any query regarding Karma Kitchen.
