The Gift of Food
Food is one of the universally accepted ways that we express love for one another. Whether the holiday is Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, Hanukah, Janmastami, or Diwali, none of these public holidays or religious festivals would be complete without the sharing of sumptuous food in a loving atmosphere. There is no greater medium than food to unite people of conflicting natures. Just about everyone will put aside differences to come together and eat. It is on this understanding that the Vedic culture of hospitality is based.
