|A recent exchange:
“Dear Kurma Dasa, Thank you very much for your cook books. This is S C with the Brahma Kumaris in Florida, USA.
I love your books because they are so creative and simple to follow. The Brahma Kumaris have the same attitude towards food and the same vaishnava diet so your books are even more appreciated by this atma.
Also, going through your website I was very intrigued by your recounting of your early days and how you came to be where you are. Here’s to your continued courage and for becoming a monk and going on a road less travelled.
In Remembrance of the Supreme Soul, S”
“Dear S, Thank you for your letter. I’ve just moved from one side of Australia to the other, so excuse the delay in replying.
I appreciate your kind words. Yes, I have had many dealings with the Brahma Kumaris over the years. My father was invited by a friend to attend a weekend retreat with your members in Sydney a few years back, and mentioned over lunch how the food tasted just like his son’s cooking. One of the cooks showed him which book the recipes came from, and my father told her his son was the author. It caused a flurry of interest, to say the least!
Thanks again for your encouragement. It means a great deal. Hare Krishna, Kurma”
