|My last two nights in Durban and environs will be spent teaching classes in the city of Phoenix, about half an hour drive from where I am staying in Chatsworth.
Those with a penchant for history may recall that this was where the Phoenix Settlement was established by Mohandas Gandhi in 1904, and where he conceived of his ‘Satyagraha’ movement. The place was formally reopened on February 27, 2000, at a ceremony attended by the President of South Africa, the Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini and many other leaders.
More significantly (for me at least) Phoenix is where a large and impressive Hare Krishna Temple was inaugurated earlier this year. I will be there tonight, teaching an enthusiastic group of 25 some of the finer points of classical Indian Vegetarian cookery.
Full report tomorrow…
