The Wonderful World of Whole Wheat

As the holidays simmer down and monastery guests reduce the monks return to their crafts as carpenters, astrologers, morphological plant-lovers, zymologists, inter-web-code transformationers, fruit pickers and pressers, fromageres, dorodangerists and bakers. We small band of brothers take care of this and that seeing that we shape the outer along with the inner.

Today we take quick look at a few creations from our bakers and enjoy the final product of wheat mixed with water mixed with yeast and thrown around the kitchen.

    Metaphorically and delightfully, a beautiful message! Our Gurudev Bodhinatha and Monks teach us how to live life and spiritual striving by example. The creations look so yummy.
