We gathered in the chilled woodsy September air inside Yudhisthira's one-of-a-kind, "back to basics" stone cabin across the creek from the RVC Temple. His humble abode, carved, built, and assembled by hand (or in his words "built using no money...OK, maybe $25"), is truly a model of exactly what we're talking about.
Yudhisthira lives in communion with Krsna and Mother Nature, and he is a gracious host, a sincere and practiced devotee, a wondrous storyteller, and a true friend to Vaisnavas alike. Here's some pics of his abode...

Devananda Pandit gave a informative talk on the art of tomato canning. You can click here to check out an article we did with Devananda a little while back all about this sublime, self-sufficient process of vegetable preservation. Be informed and can those tomatoes!
We'd like to thank Lotus, Micheal, and Grey for cooking a wonderful feats of rice, spinach and lentil dal, a corn, pepper, and tomato subji, and applesauce. All of it homemade and locally-grown. We wouldn't have it any other way.
Next week, we're making homemade apple cider up at Radha-Kunda, the humble abode of HH Varsana Swami. It will be hands-on and heart-warming. Stay tuned here for all the details.
