    Personally I think Swamy Ji must go for a second 'Enclave Ashram' on the outskirts of Bangalore, where it caters to Swamiji's inner inspiration. Obviously in associate with this Ashram. Jai Guruji.

    kindly use wooden chopping boards instead of plastic as it go inside our body, and also use food grade steel for cooking instead of aluminium( if at all using) as it is toxic and clean utensils with wood ash instead of toxic cleaning chemicals.

    Namaste
    My simple one opinion
    Stop Giving cook food to people
    Almost every one is physically unhealthy
    Every one is suffering from any kind of sickness
    So I believe food is main cause of everything
    Serve only God made recipe food
    Like Raw food, salads,smoothies, soup, dry fruits, sweets can be made raw etc
    There are millions of recipe for which cooking is not required
    Cook food people can eat at home
    At least eat healthy food in temple
    Now a day food in temple is like eating in hotel
    Food is basic of everything in our life
    Now a day people has forgot to eat raw food like our ancestors & they live long
    I have stop going to any temple because people waste food & over eating
    If every temple start with only God recipe food , we all will stop with 3 D, DRUGS , DISEASE , AND DOCTORS

    Food seems to be delicious but I sincerely hope / request that no one please waste even a grain of food , because on one side this world is dying of starvation ! Thank God we get food πŸ™ . In my house we always leave our plates absolutely clean of food grains . And after every meal thank God for His Mercy of giving us delicious food. We never waste water or electricity too . It is the duty of the lady of the house to ensure that no food is wasted . Just think for a minute , that somewhere someone is yearning for this food . Thank you πŸ™

    Sri Sri Ravishankar is a money minded guy. He doesn't serve food for free for most of the days. All his so called spirituality, Yoga, food or ayurvedic products which he sells are very expensive. His so called Ashrama or shop is only opened for rich class. There is nothing called charity, compassion in his dictionary.

    It would be nice if no one in this world went hungry or thirsty. At least he is doing his bit. Regardless of religion we need to love this creation be it humans, animals or the plants. Respect is needed. Share the good in life and this world would become a better place. Take away greed and we all become equal.

    totalmente de acuerdo con anton fernando. tanta ostentacion; y tanta comida y en la india miles mueren de hambre. un ejercicio de espiritualidad y grandeza seria que toda esa gente fuera a trabajar ahi, dando de sus dineros y ayudando a dar de comer a los pobres. solo son disfrutadores. muchooooo lakshmi se ve que entra a diario. el guru es krishna a ese hay que perseguir y querer conocer,,, y seguramente enfrente a tu casa o barrio esta todo lo que tienes que hacer para crecer y que otros tengan mejor calidad de vida
