(Kadamba Kanana Swami, Melbourne, Australia, October 2011)
If you want to be a good cook, then you have to be trained. You can ask Kurma! Every detail is strict when Kurma is in the kitchen. Nothing is left to chance. And this temple (not only the kitchen) is living by the legacy of Kurma Prabhu.
I was talking with Aniruddha yesterday, and how Kurma was one of the founding fathers here in the Melbourne temple. Especially in deity worship, and in the kitchen, and everything else was related to that – cleanliness and some standards. So many standards from Kurma. Whenever we walk here we see Kurma, it is true! I still see Kurma’s presence today. It is his kind mercy upon us!
