THE MASTER COOK

“When I was very young. I was very fond of the master cook. I loved him so much I always wanted to be with him, even if this meant just being able to see the hem of his gown below the curtains, which serves as room partitions in Tibetan houses. Luckily he tolerated my behaviour. He was virtually bald, very gentle and simple. He was not a very good storyteller, and he did not like to play much, but these things did not matter at all. Since then, I have often wondered about the nature of our relationship. Sometimes I think that food is an essential ingredient in every type of relationship between living beings” – His Holiness Dalai Lama

(P.g. 17, The Dalai Lama’s Little Book of Inner Peace)
