The Golden Temple in Amritsar is one of my favorite places for so many reasons. One major reason is that they selflessly feed tens of thousands of people every day. What an act of compassion and service.
I came across this video on Vimeo and it’s really well done showing the kitchen at the Golden Temple in Amritsar and how they go about feeding the masses. I was there last year during Diwali, the Festival of Lights, and it truly was a special experience. It was my second Diwali in Amritsar and this time I had a group with me on one of our spiritual adventures. If you ever make it to India do try and make your way north to Amritsar and if you can, time it with Diwali. You are sure to have an ineffable experience.
From a culture of sharing we have become a culture driven by possession and profit. The century of self. This short film comes from the kitchens of the golden temple where every day around 100,000 people, regardless of colour, caste or religion, donate, prepare, consume and clean for nothing more than compassion. Are we really moving in the right direction?
This year the world will produce enough food to feed twice the world’s population, yet every day almost one billion people will sleep hungry.
