Vegetables For A Long Life


Carrots                Cabbage (Chinese or otherwise)
Celery                  Bean Thread
Cucumber            Parsley (Chinese)

Cut vegetables into very small match-sized pieces. Soak an equal amount (to that of cut vegetables) of bean
thread in warm water for ten minutes and drain.  Toss all together with:

1. Tsp. Dry Mustard    Peanut Oil
Soy Sauce                   Sesame Oil—a small amount adds to flavor

Fresh bean curd, bean sprouts (pour boiling water over them and let them sit for ten minutes), fresh peppers, and bean thread (prepare as above), with soy sauce, & sesame oil dressing also make  a delicious salad.

Beginning in this issue of Vajra Bodhi Sea is an exciting bilingual series presenting the Venerable Master Hua's Dharma Talks to a hard-working group of cultivators who attended the 1972 winter sessions. The first two of the three weeks were given over entirely to recitation of the Buddha's name, and the third to twenty hours a day of dhyana meditation. The Master's instructional talks are lively and informative, filled with poetry and engaging answers to the participants' questions which cut right through to reveal the essence and aim of the practice. This series will present material which is not only totally new to the Western culture, but what is more, is new to the Orient as well. For this reason the talks will be presented in both English and Chinese. This is a series you won't want to miss! See page 26.
