GYALWANG KARMAPA'S NUTRITION INITIATIVE


2014.11.19

In order to improve the nutrition of monks and nuns, last year His Holiness introduced a new bread at breakfast during the Monlam. He bought industrial mixers and ovens and set them up in the outdoorMonlam kitchen. Then he personally oversaw the production of wholemeal rolls, flavoured with nuts and raisins. Quite a change from traditional Tibetan white flour pagleb!
