Vegetarian Catering in the Kootanays
At Jagannath Express we do our best to incorporate karma yoga into our business. All of our food offerings are prepared with the intention of first offering them to Jagannath (God), and then we eat the remnants which are known as prasadam. By eating prasadam, it helps to clear our consciousness (or karma), and make us more receptive to spirituality.
The name of Jagannath Express was inspired by the temple in Jagannath Puri in the state of Orissa, India. Every day dozens of brahmin priests cook over one hundred different food offerings to Jagannath (God). After the food has been offered, and it becomes prasadam, they distribute it to the public very efficiently and affordably. We aspire to follow in their food steps, and share with the people of the Kootenays, the delicious prasadam and this fusion of cuisine and spirituality.
