When Dao Transmitting Master, Li Kuei-Fang, has transmitting Dao in Vietnam, one of the Dao members asked, “ You all encourage us to be a vegetarian, but no one tells us how to cook vegetarian cuisines.” It’s the point that she started to think how to promote the delicious and healthy vegetarian cuisines to all of our Dao members. As a result, we started filming The Vegetarian Cuisine Teaching at Hai-Wang Temple of Tien-Yuan Bodhimanda in Bao-Kuan Yuan-De.
In I-Kuan Dao Bodhimanda, we have been teaching Confucianism and the concept of vegetarian fast to all the sentient beings. After thinking in many ways, we decided to start from “kitchen”. How wonderful and sweet that the extented family can get together and cook meals happily in the kitchen. Cooking vegetarian cuisines also can warm up the atmospere in “Daoist family”. In Dao Transmitting Master Li’ opinion, good cuisine is not only how delicious it is. The most important of all, it makes the people feel its elaborating and love in food. That’s beyond the cuisine in the world.
