Recently, Jain Center of Southern California held a Cooking Art Workshop, where 3 culinary Artists painted a new landscape for Jain - Vegan and Healthy Gourmet food.

What started as a challenge for JCSC reflected as a more positive image for the Jain Community when the 3 Artists changed the whole persona of Jains and reflected on an indomitable Jain Spirit. They applied their Creative Skills at its best and presented Jain Cuisine in a delectable Art Form for the ever-changing needs of the community which was well attended with overwhelming support by all. Priya Vora prepared Thai Crunch Salad, Bela Sampat prepared Thai Curry with Rava Idli, and Mona Gandhi prepared Burmese Khow Suey.

JCSC offered Gastronomy Workshops to bridge the gap in the Era of new cooking gadgets with ancient grains, nutrition but still retaining Jain principles.

King Shrenik of Magadha set out for a forest outing on a horse. As he entered the Madikuli garden, he saw a saintly person in meditation under a tree. He was surprised at the sight of such a pleasant face with a glowing forehead and was impressed by the monk. The King wondered as to what heart-rendering and shocking experiences of worldly life might have led him to forsake the joys and pleasures of youthful life and resort to a saintly way of life dedicated to penance.

The King bowed before the monk and asked politely, “I request you kindly set to rest the doubt agitating my mind. What has compelled you to take diksha in the prime of your life? As I look at the unusual beauty of your body and your youthful age, I am prompted to ask as to what compelled you to forsake your family, wealth and dear ones at such a young age.”

A person acquires knowledge and concentration of mind by studying scriptures. He becomes firm in religion and helps others to acquire that firmness. Thus, through the studies of scriptures, he becomes absorbed in the contemplation of what is expounded therein.
